An internationally recognized music program for children from birth through age 5—and the grownups who love them! Parents, primary caregivers, early childhood professionals—everyone is involved in the educational process. First offered to the public in 1987, Music Together has been a pioneer in the field of early childhood music with truly innovative, high-quality music education and outreach programs that redefine what musical means.
The program is research-based, so we know our stuff and we’re good at what we do. But we’re also down to earth, accessible, and all about having a good time. It’s a balance that makes us both serious and fun. What can we say? We’re serious about having fun!
The Joy of Family Music®
At Music Together, we understand the importance of music in early childhood—from birth, in fact. Because the truth is, most people are born with enough music aptitude to play in a symphony orchestra when they are adults, if they choose. But first we must learn how to “speak music”—to take the musical instrument we all have, ourselves, developing that musical capacity from a very young age. The sounds we make, our movements, our rhythms—these are the building blocks of music and of early childhood learning. And that’s what Music Together is all about. Music is more than instruments and voices. It’s more than rhythm and movement. Music is a powerful force that can inspire, create community, and build family bonds. And it can be life-changing to develop our inner music-maker as early as possible.
Why Mixed-Age Classes?
Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. The hallmark of the Music Together program, our Mixed-age Class gives children the environment they need to grow musically while interacting both socially and musically with peers of different ages. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because their children can go to class together. And any or all of your child’s caregivers—parents, grandparents, nannies—can come share in the experience, both in class and at home. The whole family is welcome! Siblings younger than 8 months, as well as siblings older than age 5 are always FREE.
