Music Together is an early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age eight—and the grownups who love them! First offered in 1987, our music classes help little ones develop their innate musicality—and much, much more. We've Done Our Homework. Our early childhood music curriculum has decades of research behind it, in both music education and child development. We know what we're talking about, and we're good at what we do! And because we recognize that children learn through play, we make everything we do in class engaging and fun. We're All About Family. We also know that young children learn best from the powerful role models in their lives. That's where you grownups come in! Our family music classes show parents, teachers, and caregivers how to help their children become confident music-makers just by having fun making music themselves.
We're All About Community. Music Together brings families of all kinds together in a warm, supportive environment where everyone feels comfortable singing, dancing, and jamming. Creating lasting family and community bonds through music is a huge part of our programs.
The Music Together® Mission In a nutshell: Our mission is to make the world a better place by making it more musical. We do this by providing the highest-quality music and movement classes to families everywhere—and by involving parents and caregivers. When a family starts making music together early in their child's life, their relationship to music changes, and they begin to recognize that they are indeed a musical family! The Music Together Philosophy. Most people think being musical is a question of talent—you either have it or you don't. While that may sound reasonable, it's completely untrue! All children can learn to dance and sing just as naturally as they learn to walk and talk. With this in mind, we formulated four basic principles that guide everything we do. The Four Principles of Music Together
All children are born musical.
All children can achieve basic music competence—that is, they can learn to sing in tune and dance accurately to a beat.
It's crucial that parents and caregivers participate in class and model music-making for their children in class and at home, regardless of their own musical ability.
The environment that best fosters young children's musical growth is playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate.
