Music Together`s Philosophy For Children`s Music Classes
Music Together ® is an internationally recognized early childhood music program. Its classes are based on leading research, both in music and child-development theory. The music catches children’s imaginations, the activities inspire learning and participation. Music Together’s musically rich, play-based, and developmentally appropriate approach includes parent and primary caregiver participation regardless of music ability. “Rather than simply allowing the parents to be present as observers,” explains founder Ken K.Guilmartin, “we took it as part of our mission to provide them with as fulfilling an experience as we give their children.” Music Together classes can help you develop your talent as well as your child’s. Music Together is a safe place for adults to explore their own music-making abilities, which fosters the relaxed, playful atmosphere that allows learning to flourish in all children, whether they be babies, infants, toddlers, or preschool aged children.
Why Choose Music Together Classes For Your Kids?
By combining both music and child development research, Music Together classes foster growth and development in many areas essential for success and are a great prelude for school and life. The program naturally supports:
- Language acquisition
- Social/emotional skills
- Cognitive growth
- Physical development
Participants of Music Together experience: bonding, attachment, making connections and building a sense of community, feelings of validation, building self-esteem, practicing transitions, self-regulation, executive functioning, dramatic play, imagination, improvisation, leadership, and so much more! Our goal is for children to also develop basic music competency by achieving both basic tonal competency and basic rhythm competency. They will able to sing and move in a rhythmically accurate way. The notes and pitches in their melodies will be accurate and in tune.
Why Does A Mixed-Age Music Class Benefit Your Child?
Child development researchers recommend mixed-age classes because they foster natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating the older ones in class and older children learn by leading the younger ones. This family music environment contrasts with a more rigid school-oriented style of learning and allows babies, infants, toddlers, and preschool-aged children to participate together, as well as moms, dads, grandparents, and caregivers. The whole family is welcome for this essential family music experience!
What do Music Together songs sound like?
Each of our nine song collections includes songs, rhythmic rhymes, tonal and rhythm patterns, and instrumental play-alongs in a wide variety of melodies, tonalities and meters, professionally recorded with outstanding instrumentalists and vocalists.
Since 1987, our award-winning and constantly evolving materials have benefitted from the feedback of teachers, parents, and children from around the world. Have a listen for yourself!
