Winter Session 2017 Registration is now open to the public, click on "Register" tab above.  Winter Session begins Jan. 9th and runs for 11 weeks.

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!

Want to attend a TRIAL ClASS first? Please see right side of this home page "What's New" Section and scroll down for details on how to sign up for a one time trial class.  

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 family! 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.

  • 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, regardless of ability. 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".
