Younger children watch and imitate older ones, older children lead younger ones, and adults are happy because their children are in class together.
Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. Children—even babies!—are inspired and stimulated through interaction with peers of different ages. And any or all of your child's caregivers—parents, grandparents, nannies—can come share in the experience, both in class and at home.
Your baby will engage at their own level, vocalizing, moving, listening, observing, and exploring musical instruments!
Children with special needs, including physical, cognitive, or neurological impairments, are welcome and often thrive in Music Together Mixed-age Classes
With our “accept and include” philosophy, our understanding of developmentally appropriate practice, and our respect for different learning styles. Music Together has a board-certified music therapist on staff who helps teachers and center directors with adaptations as needed. Your family is welcome!
Our In-School curriculum allows you to offer a consistently high level of music education that's geared to the way children learn.
Music Together is the leading music curriculum for early-learning settings serving children ages birth through seven and is offered at thousands of locations around the world. Children can enjoy a playful learning environment that's musically rich, yet immediately accessible to their—and their teacher's—participation.
In senior residential and day programs across the country, people of all ages come together to sing, dance, shake shakers, and swing scarves during weekly Music Together intergenerational classes.
As the children’s music-learning is nurtured, babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and their grownups also foster new and important relationships with "Musical Grandfriends." These unique and powerful classes are also greatly enjoyed by the seniors and staff. Seniors look forward to the children's lively visits, the chance to share memories, and the sheer fun of these playful music-making experiences. The additional cognitive, physical, and emotional benefits for both children and elders make the Generations class a win-win for all participants.
