The Music Together curriculum includes a mix of original songs and traditional tunes from the folk, jazz, and world music traditions in a variety of tonalities and meters. By presenting a range of musical styles from lyrical to blues, from folk to boogie, Music Together provides children with a rich music experience that stimulates and supports their growing music skills and understanding.
Music Together's nine song collections—each identified by its own color, instrument name, and graphic—are presented in a three-year cycle of three semesters per year. They are non-sequential, so families may join at any semester and attend class for three full years before cycling back to re-experience the collections from their growing children’s ever-changing perspectives. Because music learning is cumulative, with children reaping developmental benefits that build over time, we encourage their participation for as many years as possible from infancy through kindergarten. This fall, join us for the Fiddle Collection...with brand-new, updated songbooks and materials!
Music Together CDs have outstanding arrangements that are fun, sophisticated, and loved by children and grownups alike. The music is pitched in just the right range for children's voices and includes songs, rhythmic rhymes, tonal and rhythm patterns, and instrumental play-alongs. All of the songs are suitable for mixed-age groups, perfect for childcare centers or families with children of different ages.
Our mission at Music Together is "to make the world a better place by making it more musical". This means we truly hope you'll take the music home with you and infuse songs into your every day. With this in mind, every family receives at-home resources so the musical play can continue in the car, at dinner time, or wherever you spend time together!
Each semester enrolled families receive our award-winning music on CD, along with a download code to access the songs on all eletronic devices. Also included is an illustrated songbook for even more music-making at home. You can even access all of the full musical notation online so that, if you play an instrument, you can rock out with your children at home on your instrument of choice! In addition, families new to the program receive a parent guide, "Music and Your Child: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers" full of information all about your child's musical development and the why and how of what we do.
