When you're a parent, you want to give your young child the very best. You want to expose them to every possible opportunity to learn and grow. At Music Together, this starts with creating a bond through music. Since 1987, we've introduced millions of children, parents, and teachers to the joys of music-making and the powerful benefits of having music in their lives.

Today, it’s common for us to only listen to music rather than create it ourselves. But actively making music is so important for children’s music and overall development. That’s why Music Together has never been more essential. Young children learn best through active exploration and live, meaningful interaction with the grownups they love. So we say, take out the earbuds and pick up the instrument we were all given at birth—ourselves!

Bringing Harmony Home®

From babyhood through the early elementary years, Music Together nurtures each child’s natural musicality. In family classes, grownups learn together with their children and then re-create the fun at home with our recordings and songbooks. Our curriculum for schools is deeply integrated into the classroom experience all day long and then continues at home as family members use our music and home materials to further engage children—and experience some of the fun, too! This is just what young children need to develop a love of music.

MORE THAN MUSIC LEARNING . . . ALL LEARNING

Early in life, music has tremendous power to support the developing child in all their growing capacities. In addition to being enjoyable for its own sake, it forges unique connections in the brain, integrating mind, body, and emotions. It enhances a child’s language, cognitive, emotional, social, physical development as well as their learning habits and dispositions.

When you bring the power of music into your child’s life with Music Together, you offer them a playful learning environment that is also immediately accessible. We provide children a wealth of musical experiences to share with the grownups who love them, as the adults learn to continue the play at home. With songs in a range of musical styles—lyrical to blues, world music to folk, along with fun and developmentally appropriate activities, your son or daughter receives a rich music experience that stimulates and supports their growing skills and understanding.


CLASS TYPES

Babies Class (for infants up to 8 months)

Music Together offers a one-semester Babies Class for families with infants from birth through eight months of age. In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music using methods such as "purposeful touch," "sound-layering," "dancing for baby," etc. And since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age, in-school, and "Big Kids" classes.

Mixed Age Classes (for children ages birth through 5)

Your child’s musicality is just waiting to blossom, and now is the time to give it the loving care it needs. Our Mixed-age Class makes it easy—and fun! Just imagine how much they could learn in a music class where children from birth to age 5 are all participating at their own levels—singing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments in a welcoming and supportive environment. The hallmark of the Music Together program, this class gives babies, toddlers, and preschoolers just the environment they need to grow and develop while interacting both socially and musically with other children of varying ages. It’s the perfect way to introduce them to the joys of making music. To help you continue the fun and learning at home, you’ll receive copies of the recording used in class, a songbook, and access to exclusive online content, including MP3s of the songs.

Big Kids Classes (for children ages 5–7)

Music Together Big Kids is a music and movement class especially developed for your five- to seven-year-old's abilities and needs. We understand that children at this age thrive in a structured environment but still like to get a little silly. In our Big Kids class, your child has the opportunity to learn and play with others, while building leadership and decision-making skills at the same time. Each semester's song collection is based on songs from the collection being used in our other family classes—yet Big Kids have their own recording, songbook, and other materials made especially for their new abilities and interests.
