Music Together® is an innovative music and movement program for children (birth to 5 years old) and the grownups who love them! Created by the Center for Music and Young Children in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that ALL children are musical and need a stimulating and supportive musical environment to achieve basic music competence: the ability to sing in tune, and move and sing with rhythmic accuracy. Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of MAKING music, instead of passively receiving it.
Central to the Music Together approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. By participating in informal, playful, developmentally appropriate activities led by the teacher, the adults model the enjoyment of music making. In turn, children spontaneously join in the musical activities in their own way, in their own time, without any expectation of performance.
