Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for families with children birth through 5 years old. Now taught in over 2000 communities spanning more than 25 countries, the program was developed in 1987 by the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ. Music Together pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate music curriculum that facilitates adult involvement. Through informal instruction, classes provide an engaging, playful, and non-performance-oriented learning environment that emphasizes actual music experiences rather than concepts about music. One of the unique features of Music Together is that no matter where you are -- whether it's California or Istanbul -- your family is singing the same songs and reading the same songbooks.
Music Together classes build on your child(ren)'s natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We believe that music ability is as much a basic life skill as walking or talking, and that all children can achieve basic music competence -- i.e. learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate in music-making with confidence and pleasure -- provided that their early environment supports such learning. Music Together creates a rich musical environment in the classroom, while also facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life. The program provides children with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study voice or an instrument if they choose to do so in the future.
Music Together classes offer your family a chance to play, to make music, and to learn about children's music development. Parents and other primary caregivers -- regardless of their musical background and abilities -- are the most important influences in a child's musical life. If adults have fun making music, children will, too. So join us in introducing your child(ren) to the pleasures of making music . . . together!
