Music Together of Oak Harbor



Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?


Join our mixed-age class for children from 0 to school age and their grownup! Be a family that makes Music Together® with song, chant, instruments, and movement.


The mixed-age allows siblings to participate together and for you to see music through the lens of beautiful young eyes. See the babies babble along with the music, the 1-year-old sit in wonder and then begin to find their own way to expressing what they feel.


See your children learn to move to music and celebrate and rhythm and tones they hear. 

Be a part of the joy that comes with making Music Together.

Several classes and class times to choose from!
