The Music Together® Preschool curriculum revives the question “what did you do at school today?” Parents learn the songs their children are singing in class. Children have a tangible connection between home and school by having the same CDs and songbooks in both locations. The connection often sparks dialogue that would not have happened otherwise and creates a sense of community for all involved.
Through Music Together®, many adults rediscover their own pleasure in making music, develop new parenting skills that support their child’s learning, and gain a repertoire of activities that are fun and educational for the whole family.
Bringing the Music Home!®
Children “bring the music home” to their parents through the family CD and songbook. Many preschoolers teach their parents the songs and activities and pretend to be the “music teacher” for the rest of the family. And because of Music Together’s unique traditions of adult inclusion and family music activities for all ages, the entire school community – parents, children in various classes, staff, visitors – learns the same songs.
“The parent involvement from this program is wonderful; something that we have not had before. It has connected the parents to the center in significant new ways.”
– Preschool Director, Trenton NJ
