Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement. Each family receive a copy of the illustrated songbook and 2 CDs as part of your tuition. In addition to the songbook and 2 CDs, enrolled families will receive a code to access Music Together’s Family Music Zone app for your phone.

family musicA Music Together Class Experience:

  • A community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful setting.
  • Music learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children. 
  • Infants, toddler, and preschoolers participating at their own levels in family -style classes of mixed ages.
  • Parents and caregivers contributing to the enrichment of their child’s music environment-regardless of their own musical abilities.
  • A new song collection every semester for three year, featuring great arrangements of original and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.
