Spring 2023 Maracas Collection
Summer 2023 Kazoo 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.
— Class activities include: singing, rhythmic rhymes and chants, creative movement, dancing and instrument play.
