What Is Music Together?
For hundreds of thousands of families worldwide, Music Together is children and their grownups joyfully sharing songs, rhymes, movement, and instrument play, both in music class and in their daily lives. A pioneer in early childhood music and movement education, Music Together offers classes for children from birth through kindergarten, in which parents and caregivers actively participate.
All children are sounders and movers, and their natural aptitude for music blossoms in a sufficiently rich music environment. In fact, when given a supportive music environment, children learn to sing and dance as naturally as they learn to walk and talk.
How is this possible? Children learn differently from adults. They learn instinctively and constantly. They teach themselves through imitation and play, through being immersed in their environment, and through every interaction with adults and older children. This is why the family-like setting of Music Together's mixed-age classes, in which different-aged siblings attend together, creates an ideal learning environment where infants, toddlers, and preschoolers can freely participate at their own levels.
And with Music Together, the learning continues beyond the classroom! Families receive CDs and illustrated songbooks filled with music-making ideas to inspire and support music-making in their daily lives. For many, discovering the joy of spontaneous music-making transforms their family life.
