My little boy requests the CD on at home about 4 times a day! He really enjoys his music class. Enjoyable for mommy too.
We are loving the Summer session at Bay&Bee with Ms. Marcia. My boys love listening to the cds in the car as well as dancing to them at home. Ms. Marcia is so patient, chipper and does a great job keeping my super busy boys and the class on task while still letting them do their own thing if they want to.
I bring my 4 month old daughter and she loves every minute! She’s having fun and learning at the same time. Miss Marcia is wonderful with the kids and I can tell she really loves doing it.
My daughter has been pulling herself along the floor and singing, “swimming like a dolphin” to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”

My son LOVES this music class! It’s worth the drive (to a location further away from their original location)!
The Jax MusicTogether program unlocks doors that enhance the learning experience for young children. My oldest son did not respond to music as a stimuli prior to participating in this program. But after the first session of JaxMusicTogether, he started swaying when he heard music, singing and even dancing! Now, after 8 weeks, he makes up songs, sings them out loud and plays an imaginary guitar. My heart is warmed every time I hear him sing because we enjoy music as a family now. He is like a rose that fully opened after experiencing JaxMusicTogether. Thanks so much Marcia for your kindness and sharing your blessed gift.
Q & I want to thank you for a wonderfull session of Music Together. We Love attending class-also enjoying the music around our house.

Thank you for such a great class that Henry and I can enjoy together. We look forward to it every week. The songs from class have become my magic mommy too-any time Henry doesn’t want to get in his car seat, or get a diaper change, I sing one of the songs and he stops crying & starts clapping. It’s the cutest thing ever and it has made our lives (& errands!) a lot easier and a lot more fun. Most of what I say to him I know is just babble, since he’s only 14 months, but the songs from class have become our own special little language. Thank you for being an amazing teacher and song leader, and for imbuing the songs with so much fun and “magic.”
Natalie & Henry
Thank you for all you do and for teaching us so much.
Thank you for bringing so much joy to our lives!
…we listen to the music during almost every meal and Quinn sings along…her favorites are the Sounds of Fall, Ram Sam Sam, Beehive, & Let It Shine. It’s been a terrific experience for us so far. Thank you!
We cannot wait to resume Music Together classes in September. Our daughter absolutely loves to attend your classes!
The positive impact of the Music Together curriculum on Lauren’s life is profound. Music brings her happiness, comfort, and is an outlet for self-expression. Through continued attendance at your classes and through continued exposure to the program’s music at home and in the car, her father and I know that a lifelong appreciation for music is being fostered.
May Lauren continue this rewarding journey in finding joy in music through listening, singing, playing and dancing.
Thank you! Annie really enjoys the class. She was singing “Can You Do What I Do?” at home!
A few months shy of age 4, Mike started singing along with the Music Together CD in the car and requesting it frequently. He doesn’t sing in class, preferring to play the instruments instead.
He has also started singing vocal patterns, with finger to his mouth, and insisting I respond also with finger to my mouth.
His favorite song from the summer collection 3 is Pussycat. I will sing the first line, and he will sing the response.

Just wanted to let you know that we are really enjoying the music together class. Jasmine has been practicing her songs at home. She sings herself to sleep most nights (I can hear her on the baby monitor). Her favorite is the “washing my hands” song. If I say the actions out of order she even corrects me! Today she added her own verses “driving the car” and “taking a bath” and “brushing my hair” :) We have a guitar at home and it now has a permanent assignment on the couch because she wants to play it all the time.
Jasmine is a spirited girl with big emotions. She has really taken a liking to you and the class. If her extra intensity and attention toward you makes you uncomfortable, please let me know. She can be overwhelming at times!
Thank so much for the sweet note, we got it in the mail today. And thanks for adding joy to Jasmine’s Fridays!

“My daughter loves Music Together! We have been attending since she was just over a year old, and now at almost two, it’s amazing to see how she has started developing musically. She has her favorite songs from the collections, and will often request them when we ride in the car. I love to see her find and keep the rhythm, follow instructions in the songs, and sing along as best she can. (Her accompanying carseat dance moves are also quite a treat.) She has such a wonderful time in class as well; there is something magical about making and learning about music with other children her age! Music Together is definitely a cherished part of our week.”

I was invited to attend a free (non-Music Together) children’s music class demo last month via a Stay at Home Moms’ Meetup group. I decided to check it out with “A”., my 2 year-old daughter and current Music Together participant. I must admit it was a complete waste of time! I had not realized until then how spoiled we are with Marcia Winnard, the kids’ Music Together teacher, and the program itself. Marcia exceeds all expectations as a teacher and the Music Together program is far superior. Marcia is so talented, engaging and interactive. She’s musical and passionate and we love when she plays her various instruments! I truly appreciate that she teaches the parents, too! “A” and I were bored at this non-Music Together class, and extremely disappointed with such overuse of their CD player. It was distracting with all the playing and pausing and backing up certain tracks! I’ve always raved about Marcia and Music Together, but now I know for certain it’s the best!

I’m a stay at home mom, my 18 month old little boy has had problems sitting put, focusing on things like story time. He was always the one getting up and getting into things he wasn’t supposed to.
We went to his 18 mo. dr. appointment and found that he has some learning disabilities. Which we thought there was something off with him but excused it as, every child grows differently.
Anyways, our pediatrician said to get him into a music class and daycare for a few hours a week so he’s exposed to other children. And his dr. said the music class will help him tremendously. To our surprise the first music class @ music together, with you, was the first time he actually sat still and focused. He has never done that. He loves the CD you gave us, we play it almost all day everyday. It has now been 4 classes with you and he lets me tap his hands to the beat of the songs, lets me clap his hands together, and lets me touch his toes with his hands. Normally, he would pull his hands away and won’t let me hold on to them. AMAZING!! If I don’t play the CD then he gets fussy and almost looks like he’s lost and doesn’t know what to do. It almost seems like the music brings out the creative side of his brain to allow him to want to play….if that makes any sense.
When I first came to your class, I was skeptical and thought it was a little weird. Us tapping to the beat, making different motions with our hands, making different sounds with our mouths and moving around the room (jumping, creeping, skipping, running, etc) but I get it and got it by the second class. We are the teachers to our children. They will learn from us. Even though you say it to us, I don’t think it really sinks in until we do it a couple times. In all honestly, I didn’t want to come back for a second class because I though it was the weirdest thing ever and I felt corny doing it…. My pediatrician said it’s helped many of her other patients get caught up in learning milestones and seeing the difference in my son, listening to the CD from the first class to the second class was an eye opener! I said to myself, as a mom who wants nothing more than to have a normal, happy child, I will do whatever Marcia tells me to do. And the fact that these children don’t have to sit still, was the best thing I could hear. By the third class, he was so comfortable, he is always all over your class room but yet he’s still taking it all in. When we were all drumming on the drum, he’d come over to drum on it then wonder around but he knew how to do it and loved it. I just want to say thank you for doing these classes and we will be student’s for a long time to come!
Thanks so much for your message today. We sure do miss our music class! Unfortunately, I’m on official bedrest until this baby arrives. I went into premature labor at 25 weeks and have been on bedrest since then. We are now 30 weeks pregnant and hoping this little guy stays in the womb for another 9 weeks! So, we won’t be able to join you for class. We are then moving to Pensacola. in July. I’m afraid we’ve had our last Music Together session. It makes me so sad because S. has truly blossomed attending your classes. Luckily, she remembers everything and plays her instruments every day to the CD’s! Please feel free to share my email with any class members who would like to stay in touch or get updates!
We miss you!
