Music Together is an internationally acclaimed early childhood education program designed for children from newborns to 5 years old.

The Music Together music immersion and movement program develops your child's basic rhythmic and tonal competence, all while having a great time and fostering the bond between the parent/caregiver and child. 

Music Together's songs, rhythms, chants, dances, and instrument jams expose your child to a wide variety of musical styles (jazz, rock, folk, and more), rhythms from around the world, subject matter for both city and country settings, and languages including English, Spanish, and others depending on the semester's collection of songs.  Come have fun with us!

What makes Music Together different from other early childhood music programs?
Many children's music programs and music CD's contain only songs with basic 3/4 or 4/4 time signatures, and stick to mostly major songs giving little musical variety to your child's learning ears.The collection of Music Together songs include minor, major, mixolydian, locrian and phrygian tonalities to name a few, and the various rhythms of Music Together help make for sophisticated listening that is exciting and engaging for the whole famliy! Families get to experience musical complexities rarely found on the radio or television, and actively participate in making music themselves during class time as well as at home listening to the CD. Families receive a brand new collection of songs every semester for a series of 3 full years.

 

Classes include:

A series of 10 weekly classes with the same group of people, and same teacher building a sense of safety and familiarity for little ones. 

A CD, MP3's, and songbook to take home, as well as DVD parent education guide on how to get the most out of the program.  2 free make ups per semester. 

Instruments and props include:  bells, eggs shakers, drums, balls, scarves, rhythm sticks, and more!

  • In Music Together, we celebrate the fact that all children are born with the capacity to be musical! You can nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability.
  • Our Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement.
  • Come experience a class that fosters fun and creativity, as well as social and musical learning in a pressure-free environment!
  • Music Together is appropriate for all children, infants to five years old. We therefore encourage parents to enroll children with autism/special needs as this is one environment where they can just let go, be free, and express themselves musically in an inclusive, loving environment. 

ABOUT OUR CLASSES:
We offer weekly 45-minute weekly classes. Together we explore music through songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement and instrument "play-along".

MIXED-AGE CLASSES (0 to 5 years):
Educators have long considered mixed-age groupings to foster beneficial learning skills. Our activities focus on adult/child interaction, where the adult is the musical role model for their child. 
This class is the basis for all Music Together classes, so if you have an infant, don't hesitate to take a Mixed Age Class if The Babies Only Class time doesn't work for youAll of our teachers have had specialized training in working with each age group within a mixed age setting; infants, toddlers, and 3-5 year-olds.

BABIES ONLY CLASS (0-8 months): Not offered every semester, but Babies are always welcome in any mixed age class.
They may be pre-verbal and pre-mobile, but they’re not pre-musical! A specially designed one-semester introduction to music for our youngest music-makers. Musical activities such as finger play, lap songs, and songs without words are emphasized though we learn songs with words too. A great way to have fun with your new baby, learn how they learn, and meet other new parents.   Class tuition includes 1 CD, MP3's of the music, a songbook, and 2 free make ups.  Babies are also welcome in our mixed-age classes.
