Music Together classes are a community of families coming together each week to sing, dance, play instruments, drum, pretend and experience The Joy of Family Music® making. The Music Together curriculum is research based, and classes are based on a multi-age learning model.
Classes are carefully designed to reach children of all different learning styles and personalities, whether your child is a "careful observer" or a "mover and a shaker". Parents and caregivers attend class with their child (or children) and model participation. It's really just that easy!
One thing a Music Together family will tell you is that the music and activities from class become a regular and cherished part of daily family life. My families often share wonderful stories about this. I believe this is one of many things that sets Music Together apart from other early, childhood music programs. The music and the structure of the classes appeal to all members of the family. Parents are often astonished at how quickly their child recognizes, requests and actually joins in with the music from class. There is a very good reason for this... songs are actually researched and developed to be both accessible and appealing to little ones. A handful of songs in every song collection is a "song without words" sung on syllables. You will NOT see words on posters at Music Together classes, but you WILL see and hear adults and children actively engaged in making music! At class, at home, and even in the car.
Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. Music Together classes will help you provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so.
