The Joy of Family Music
MUSIC TOGETHER NATIONAL WEBSITE

MUSIC TOGETHER classes are based on the belief that music is as much a basic life skill as walking and talking. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence and pleasure in musical experiences, provided that their early environment supports such learning.

By emphasizing actual musical experiences instead of concepts about music, we introduce children to the pleasure of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDís and television. Integral to our program is the idea that young children respond best to music when surrounded by those with whom they have a close bond. Consequently, the active participation of parents and caregivers plays an essential role in the creation of a warm, spontaneous and rich musical environment.

The four basic ideas of the Music Together Philosophy:
  • All children are musical.
  • All children can achieve basic music competence (when he or she can sing in tune with accurate rhythm; important to achieve before beginning to study a musical instrument)
  • The participation and modeling of parents and caregivers is essential to a child's musical growth.
  • Young children's musical growth occurs best in a playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate setting, free of direct instruction and performance pressure, where learning activities are accessible, interesting, and fun for both children and adults.
