MUSIC TOGETHER AT GENERATION IV STRINGS
Fall 2021 Fiddle Collection
Winter 2022 Drum Collection
Spring 2022 Tambourine Collection
WHAT IS MUSIC TOGETHER?
— A fun family music program for parents and children ages birth to kindergarten.
— Parent participation—regardless of the parent’s own music ability—is essential for creating the stimulating musical environment that all children need to develop their musical intelligence.
— A high quality, developmentally appropriate research-based curriculum with playful activities.
— Children participate at their own level and when they are ready. There is no performance pressure. Children are not required to sit still; rather, they are encouraged to respond spontaneously to the musical environment.
