What is Music Together?

Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them.
Music Together pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes adult involvement in class and at home.  

 

What happens in a Music Together class?

Music, Movement, Socializing, Fun!

In each Music Together class your teacher will lead the children and adults through 12 songs from the semester’s song collection.

Each song has activities to go along whether it’s playing simple “body percussion” on our hands, heads, bellies, and knees, or using instruments and props like shakers, drums, scarves or balls, or leading the class in movement activities or dancing.

With the help of their participating loved ones and caretakers, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music with friends!

 

Is my child the right age?

Mixed Ages classes follow the recommendations of child development researchers—grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning.

Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones;

Older children learn by leading younger ones;

Adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together.

Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments.

 

The science of Music Together

During the years from birth through age five, the brain is much more active than later on, making this a crucial time for "laying down the tracks" and "roughing in the circuitry" that will last a lifetime.

Music development involves two systems with a crucial need for input during ages 0 -5, the receptive and expressive systems.

The receptive system primarily impacts music aptitude which is developing up until about age nine. During that time, music aptitude fluctuates depending on the quality and quantity of musical stimulation.

The expressive system - the singing voice and moving body - are maturing at the same time as the "circuitry" is being laid down for these to receive the brain's signals efficiently. Thus, children learn to match what they perceive, evaluate what they sing or move to, and adjust to the changing music environment.
