About Music Together
At Music Together, we understand the importance of music in early childhood—from birth, in fact. Because the truth is, most people are born with enough music aptitude to play in a symphony orchestra when they are adults, if they choose. But first we must learn how to "speak music"—to take the musical instrument we all have, ourselves, developing that musical capacity from a very young age. The sounds we make, our movements, our rhythms—these are the building blocks of music and of early childhood learning. And that's what Music Together is all about.
Music is more than instruments and voices. It's more than rhythm and movement. Music is a powerful force that can inspire, create community, and build family bonds. And it can be life-changing to develop our inner music-maker as early as possible.
Internationally Recognized Music Program
Music Together is an internationally recognized music program for children from birth through age 7—and the grownups who love them. Parents, primary caregivers, early childhood professionals—everyone is involved in the educational process. First offered to the public in 1987, we've always been pioneers in the field of early childhood music with truly innovative, high-quality music education and outreach programs that redefine what musical means. We're research-based, so we know our stuff and we're good at what we do. But we're also down to earth, accessible, and all about having a good time. It's a balance that makes us both serious and fun. What can we say? We're serious about having fun!
At the core of the Music Together approach is the idea that young children learn best from the powerful role models of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. Our program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and then facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home in daily life—which is so important to music development and early childhood learning. It's based on the recognition that, in a supportive environment, children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and confidently participate in the music of their culture. Music Together creates that environment! By emphasizing actual music-making experiences, we introduce children to the pleasures of producing music instead of passively consuming it from iTunes or TV. We're very high-touch. Face to face, heart to heart, voice to voice—for a truly bonding and enriching experience.
Global Reach with a Personal Touch
There was a time when the fledgling Music Together company needed only a few pins in a New York/New Jersey map to represent all of its independently licensed centers and schools. Today, with more than 2500 locations in over 40 countries, we need a map of the entire world! And Music Together families experience the same music, community, and joy no matter where they are.
