Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music program offering 45 minutes of pure musical fun for you and your child each week. Accredited teachers introduce children to the pleasures of making music in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting. You’ll receive CDs and songbooks tied to each session’s unique experiences for use at home. The national program’s e-newsletter, web resources and online store provide additional support for enriching your child’s and your family’s musical growth and enjoyment.
Three 10-week class sessions are held each year, each focusing on a different song collection: fall session begins the week of September 10th; winter session begins the week of December 3rd; spring session begins the week of March 4th. An eight-week summer session begins the week of June 17th.
Music Together mixed age classes are for children birth through age 5 and their parent(s) or caregiver. The Music Together® award winning summer curriculum is used in a playful, developmentally appropriate environment which utilizes singing, moving, playing instruments and making music in a fun 45 minute class. This type of music making is shown to enhance higher order thinking skills in our children, which supports all learning and provides an opportunity for children to attain basic music competence which is needed before learning an instrument, can occur. Best part about Music Together® is the FUN we have together making music each and every class!
Big Kids Music Makers is for children entering Kindergarten through 3rd grade and includes making music, movement, instrument play, games, crafts, drumming and FUN! Parent or caregiver may attend with child, but children are able to attend class without a parent. Adults should plan to participate for the last 10 minutes of each class. This is a great class for children to continue on the path to attaining basic music competence before introduction of an instrument. This type of music making is shown to support higher order thinking skills required for all types of learning in a school setting and a great way to keep up with those skills during the summer!
