Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergardeners, 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. Families get a new songbook, 2 CD's of songs, chants, tonal & rhythm patterns, each semester, and a parent guide detailing the current research!
Imagine a class for you and your infant, toddler, or preschooler where there are wonderful sounds, interesting movements, instruments to play, other children to watch, silly things to laugh at, an inviting teacher to follow, and music your child will love! The instruction is informal; and the unique learning style of each child is embraced. Our teachers are fabulous muscians, playing either guitar or keyboard in class, so that the children get the benefit of seeing a positive role model and are often inspired to play an instrument themselves. This helps children realize that music doesn't just come from a CD..people MAKE it! This program is based on early childhood development research, and is designed to allow your child to flourish!
Our classes are known to be just as much fun for the parents! Parents' active participation is essential in class, and each week they discover fun ways to play musically with their child. Our experienced teachers share their expertise each week through education moments when they share information about the latest research on music development in children. Class activities stimulate learning at home through play, where parents can continue to encourage their child's music development through listening to the CD, and making music with their child. Parents look forward to our jam session each week when we play along to various styles of world music. We play along to jazz, blues, funk, zydeco, ska, bossanova, samba and salsa, featuring music from India, Africa, Italy, Greece, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and America, just to name a few! Musical exchange is encouraged, and parents are invited to bring in music they enjoy at home in to be used in class. Our classes are a also a great way to meet other families in the community!
