Zoom Family Music Classes

5/17/2021

For the spring semester, we will have Outside/In-Person and Zoom music class Opportunities! 

The spring semester will be held the weeks of April 12th - May 17th. 

Some classes will be weekly, some will be bi-weekly.
Some will be Zoom classes and some will be outside/in-person classes. 

We totally understand that we are all at different comfort levels as we continue to journey through COVID-19.
We tried to do my best with our spring schedule to offer different music class opportunities. 

Monday morning classes will be on zoom and Thursday morning classes will be outside. 

The West Reading Recreation Dept. has agreed to allow us to use the pavilion Thursday mornings for our spring semester classes (no rental fee!). We will not have use of the restrooms. Parking is available on Sycamore Rd. at the pavilion, you can park in permit only spaces up to 2 hours without a permit as noted on the signs. Street cleaning parking restriction signs are posted on each street.

Please participate in the Zoom classes with your child(ren). You could also try having your child,
especially toddlers and infants, face you and not the screen.

Registration
Please let us know if you would like to register for a class for your children and which class.
Please contact Carla at carla.seidel@gmail.com or at 610-375-7163. 

Class sizes are limited for outside classes. Outside classes will be filled on a first-come basis. 

Class sizes for Zoom classes are not limited. 

We will only be sending Zoom invitations to families who register for the Zoom classes. Even if you are not sure about the Zoom classes and would like to be included on our Zoom email list, please let Carla know (carla.seidel@gmail.com). 


Suggested Class Fees: 
As we continue to journey through the pandemic and until we are able to safely return to in-door classes at Bethany, we are changing the suggested semester fee to $25.00 per family instead of a per child suggested fee. If the suggested family fee does not work for your family, that is not a problem. We understand that this pandemic has affected families in many different ways. 

All of the fees are used towards the cost of instruments, materials, curriculum and
instructor continuing education for the classes. 
There are no instructor fees. 


Class fees/donations can be sent to: (please make checks payable to "Bethany Lutheran")
