Thanks to the patronage of her DadDad, we enrolled the lil’ monkey and her peanut brother in a local Music Together class, a thrill for us all. Okay, a qualified thrill. In class, the LM does her best impersonation of Michigan J. Frog, the one-hit wonder of the Warner Brothers’ cartoon “One Froggy Evening,” pasted below. Michigan J. Monkey sings every damn song from the CD at home, even plays them on kazoo while “reading” the sheet music. Kid you not. Then at the class: Ribbit.
Though she will dance.
If you’re not already a Michigan J. Frog fan, I won’t give away the plot, you really just have to watch all seven minutes of it. Especially if you’re at work.

Oh, we’ve been doing Music Together for almost three years now, and love it. The more we do, the more I realize how great the pedagogy behind it is, as well as how fun.
Music Together also seems to have had some sponsorship deal with The L Word, as I wrote a while back. Obviously, YMMV with a local teacher, but it’s nice to know they’re supportive as an organization.
I’ll have to investigate “Music Together”–never heard of it before. Thanks.
