Music Together®, an internationally recognized music and movement program, engages early childhood music development for infant, toddler and pre-school aged children and their parents and other primary caregivers through mixed-aged classes. The Music Together approach develops every child's birthright of basic music competence by encouraging the actual experiencing of music through playful activities, rather than the learning of concepts or information about music.
