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.

Instructor: Patti Papworth.

Music Together is an internationally recognized mixed-age music and movement class. The Music Together approach develops every child's birthright of basic music competence by experiencing music through playful activities rather than learning music concepts. In our socially distanced outdoor "tailgate" version, families will gather near or in their cars at the McLean Community Center's upper parking lot for interactive music-making—singing, chanting, small movement and simple dancing led by early childhood music specialist Patti Papworth. The program includes a take home CD, songbook and digital download code of the semester’s songs, as well as a set of musical instruments for families to use each week in class. Participants will be asked to complete a COVID-19 questionnaire daily.
