This Outdoor Music Together Mixed-age class will be taught in the outdoor courtyard area of Scholz Garten on 1607 San Jacinto in downtown Austin. Dan and Karen Smith have graciously opened up their restaurant's back area for our Music Together classes while the restaurant is closed, Monday through Friday mornings! They have brought their young son to our classes, and want to help us out during this pandemic! We are so grateful to them for their generosity!!
- Your enrollment will include 10 Music Together Mixed-age 40-minute outdoor classes during our 10-week Winter Session from January 4th through March 14th.
- If there is inclement weather, the class will be taught on Zoom. If it is colder than 45 degrees or a potential for rain, your teacher will email you with a Zoom link the night before.

While Austin is in Stage 5 for COVID-19, we need to do our part to keep our musical community safe. Following the City of Austin's Stage 5 guidelines, we have decided to temporarily shift all Heartsong Music Together Outdoor classes to a Zoom format. Our goal is to transition seamlessly back to the in-person outdoor classes as soon as Austin returns to Stage 4 or lower. Rest assured that we are all dedicated to providing your family with a fun, developmentally appropriate, interactive and musical experience online - and know that we all can't wait to sing together once more in person.
We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during these unprecedented times. Your continued support as we have adjusted to teaching during the pandemic means the absolute world to us.
Being together making Music Together, in person and online provides so many benefits for our children and ourselves; not least bringing us a sense of community. We need that more than ever!
