Music Together®, an internationally-recognized music and movement program, engages early childhood music development for infant, toddler and preschool children and their parents and other primary caregivers through mixed-aged classes. It pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally-appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement and, it’s fun! 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.
