What People Say

Online Classes

"The Music Together® curriculum is one of the best structured and most effective early childhood music educations out there. Without knowing how, parents and children absorb fundamental concepts of musical structure while gaining a common repertory to make music with each other in the home. We learn by watching and doing, playing and exploring. My wife and I have put both of our children through these classes with Lenka Zbruz, and the results are remarkable. Lenka is one of the best teachers I know, and not just among childhood educators. Through the pandemic, she has masterfully guided our Zoom class through a structured experience each week, building our son’s love and understanding of music as she did for our daughter. The Zoom classes are as effective and enjoyable as the in person classes we were used to. They are fun, dynamic, and have given us a great sense of community through this time. I recommend any parent of a young child get involved with what she offers."

"Our family loves Music Together and especially Lenka!  We have been attending since our 3-year-old was a baby and found the transition to online class to be seamless.  The time that Lenka takes to plan classes that will be engaging and involve children of all ages shows in the way our girls have continued to learn and have fun with music over these last few months.  A silver lining of the online format has been that both parents in our home have been able to participate, which is something that wouldn't have been possible for us with a traditional in-person class.  I highly recommend Lenka's online classes!"

Canta y Baila Conmigo®

"We have taken Canta y Baila Conmigo with Rosa Elena both in person and on Zoom.  Rosa Elena is a WONDERFUL teacher who makes everything fun and engaging.  My daughter has loved her since the day they met and looks forward to seeing her every week.  Rosa Elena's joy of music and teaching is palpable - both in person and on Zoom.  It's not easy to achieve that engagement in an online platform but Rosa Elena succeeds!  Music is a beautiful way to introduce your child to a foreign language and the CyBC class and supplemental materials make it a joyful option for children and their caregivers."  

(Watertown mom of a child who has been in classes with Rosa Elena for 2+ years)


"Canta y Baila with Rosa Elena is an amazing experience for kids and parents. Rosa Elena’s energy, love, and musical expertise come shining through. We are not bilingual, but my son and I were able to participate and learn. The class is joyous and she is a first-rate instructor."

Music Together Babies

"My son Levi and I joined Rhonda’s baby class when he was almost 2 months old. I was looking for a way to engage with him musically from a young age and Rhonda’s class was a perfect fit! My husband and I learned the songs and have had tons of fun singing them. Levi is now 4 months old and is very happy to hear his favorite songs. Rhonda does a great job of explaining how babies learn and feel music and how parents can interact with their babies in a way that supports their development. We’ve had so much fun in her class and look forward to the next session!!"

(Monika from Malden)


Music Together Mixed-age

"We are on our sixth session of Music Together (we started when my son was 6 months old and he is now 2 years old). We both look forward to Music Together all week. Lenka is a fabulous teacher for the children and for the parents. We've learned so much from Lenka and give her a huge amount of credit for our son's huge love for singing and dancing. I highly recommend Music Together of Belmont to anyone looking for to instill a love of music in their children and/or those who are looking for something fun to do together as a family." (Elizabeth Loehr)


"I  appreciate the opportunity that my children have to explore and learn about music in this safe, supportive, and thoroughly enjoyable class."


"I was amazed by the quality and variety of the songs on the CD, using different genres and modes, odd meters, etc., recorded by professional musicians with real instruments who have excellent skills. I think exposing my son to this high quality music makes a huge difference later on."


I am seeing huge strides in Sophia's music development. After the song finishes she continues to hum or sing the beat. Mia is now dancing too. It is so wonderful. I never realized how much I enjoy music until I shared it with them. (Liz Zevallos)


"Our 4 month old LOVES Music Together! Lenka knows so much about music and a baby’s development and how the two tie in together! Great way for parents to bond with the baby and get out of the house!" (Danielle Coppola)


"Thank you for nurturing my son's love of music. We have so much fun in class and look forward to it each week."


"My daughter has gotten so much out of these classes. She sings and dances to the CD at home and loves interacting with the other children. It’s been a wonderful experience and we’re looking forward to next semester."


"Round 2 of Music Together with my kids and Lenka and we love it! We have learned so much and are grateful to have found Lenka! Music has been an important part of my life and I am thrilled to be able to share this with my kids. They seem to enjoy it as much as I do and surprise me with skills they have learned from these classes every day." (Catrina Rueckwald)


"I think Music Together® is a WONDERFUL program. I would recommend it to any parent. It has made my son, husband, and myself so musical. WE LOVE IT. "


"My son enjoys the class a lot, and loves the music and dancing movements. He sometimes seems to not be paying attention, but at home he shows what he learned at class, and it is amazing how much he remembers."


"My 4½-year-old loves it, and he has clearly gained a strong musical foundation."


"A very positive influence on my 17 month old daughter, with great ideas that we reinforced at home."


"What a positive, happy place to spend time with your child."


"My baby loves this class, and I’ve learned a lot about how to bring music into his life."


"Charlie overheard me talking about the 'last' Music Together and said, with some urgency, "Mom, sign me up again!"  I asked about continuing and he said, "I love it!"   Obviously we are coming back." (Nicole S.)


"My daughter, Francesca, 3 1/2, LOVES the Music Together program. This is our third session. She sings the songs all the time . The other day she applied the Merry Go Round song to going up and down the slide on the playground. Our teacher educates us parents about how music is learned and applied at an early age." (Elena P.)


"My baby, Mia, 15 months, loves to come to the music classes. She claps, laughs, rocks, listening to the songs, and interacts with the teacher. We love the program." (Maribel C.)
