The Music Together program is an internationally respected, research based program and will provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so. It is our essential Music class, one that a child can attend from birth through age four through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers —grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. 45-minute music classes include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences—developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers—regardless of their own musical ability. CD, download code and Songbook are included!
