Music Together is a research based, Music and Movement program for children newborn to age 5 and the adults who love them with classes in 40 countries world-wide including throughout the USA. Instrument play, dancing, singing, tonal patterns, rhythm patterns, parent education and more are all part of out weekly 45 minute music immersion classes. Tuition includes a songbook, CD, DVD, parent guide, newsletters and a unique code to stream or download music from the ‘Family Music Zone”. In the non-competitive, non-performance environment the caregivers, regardless of music ability, nurture and bond with the child through musical play. The classes encourage the child’s natural enthusiasm, giving them a positive attitude toward music and movement. This creates a solid foundation for future formal music and dance training while helping them get ready for attending school.
