The Music Together® Program

MUSIC TOGETHER® IS....

Music Together  is a music & movement class for children birth to age 5 and the grown ups that love them®. Mixed-age classes for children 0-5 meet once a week for 45  minutes during our sessions.  You enroll in a particular day and time and we will see each week at that time.  We will sing and dance and play fun instruments together.  You receive the music and a songbook to bring home with you each semester so we all know the songs and can sing together!  

Music Together is an internationally recognized program and a pioneer in research-based early childhood music education. The program builds on a child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. The program is found all over the world and is SOOOO popular because it's SO fun and SO educational!

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 age 7, 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 than 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. The family-like setting of Music Together's mixed-age classes enables siblings to attend together, creating an ideal learning environment where infants, toddlers, and preschoolers can freely participate at their own levels.

Our mission is to make the world a better PLACE by making it more musical.

To do this, we bring the highest quality music and movement experiences to children everywhere- and we involve the adults who love them in the magical process of development that only music can provide.

Music Together Classes

  • Fully trained, registered Music Together teachers lead groups of six to twelve children and their parents or caregivers (nannies, babysitters, grandparents, or relatives) in forty-five minutes of music and movement experiences (60 minutes for Big Kids).

  • Each weekly class offers a dozen songs and rhythmic rhymes, including fingerplays, small- and large-movement activities, and instrument play.

  • Children and their adults have opportunities to create and improvise making up new words to songs, offering movement ideas, making silly sounds, and sharing musical ideas from the family's play at home.

  • The relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented classroom setting respects and supports the unique learning styles, developmental levels, and temperaments of all participants, creating a strong sense of community.

  • Families receive two new CDs each semester — one for home and one for on-the-go — along with an illustrated songbook that's filled with music-making ideas for spontaneous music play beyond the weekly classes. (For more information, see our Curriculum page)

Your Role Is Essential

Young children learn through play and experimentation and by watching and listening to the grownups they love. Setting an example as an enthusiastic participator in music activities is the best thing any parent or caregiver can do to help set a child on the road to a lifelong love of music. Parents don't need to have music skills—they just need a desire to play and have fun with their children! Our teachers are specially trained to create a safe atmosphere so you can happily join in, experiment, or even get silly—and feel closer to your child while doing so.

Music Learning Supports All Learning®

Wiggling, singing, and laughing with your child is so much fun, it's easy to forget how much learning is taking place! Our research-based curriculum not only develops music skills, it nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence while also supporting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Because these benefits build over time, children enjoy the fullest growth in each of these areas when they participate as consistently as possible up through kindergarten.
