Early childhood music is about participation. Our classes are for babies and kids ages birth through 5 years with their caregiver(s). During the 45-minute class, the adults join the kids in song, dance and play. It’s such a delightful time!
Music, movement, creativity, and play are incredibly important during your young child’s life.
We don’t teach music theory; we bring families together in a joyful and playful environment, while facilitating learning and creativity with musical activities and movement.
And you’ll be equipped to build on these experiences with your kids at home or in the car, or wherever your daily life takes you. You’ll notice that the music-making will follow you around!
What is Music Together?
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, first and second graders, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.
Central to the Music Together approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life.
