Fully trained, registered Music Together teachers lead groups of six to twelve children and their parents or caregivers (nannies, babysitters, grandparents, or relatives) in forty-five minutes of music and movement experiences.
Each weekly class offers a dozen songs and rhythmic rhymes, including finger plays, small-and-large movement activities, and instrument play. Children and their adults have opportunities to create and improvise making up new words to songs, offering movement ideas, making silly sounds, and sharing musical ideas from the family's play at home. The relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented classroom setting respects and supports the unique learning styles, developmental levels, and temperaments of all participants, creating a strong sense of community.
Families receive two new CDs each semester — one for home and one for on-the-go — along with an illustrated songbook that's filled with music-making ideas for spontaneous music play beyond the weekly classes.
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.
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 or families with children of different ages.
Each semester, families receive two CDs along with an illustrated songbook full of music-making ideas. In addition, families new to the program receive a parent guide DVD and booklet, "Music Together at Home: Helping Your Child Grow Musically."
Early childhood music class in Tucson-Oro Valley
"I know that music is a great tool that fuels creativity and development for children. Because of this, I highly recommend the Music Together classes which I have been taking with my 22 month old son. I have been a musician and singer for years and this class has allowed to share my love of music with my child through an interactive experience. We not only sing in class, we dance and play with all different kinds of instruments and props (beautiful scarves, balls, and even a parachute). It has been fun to see how my child blossomed in this class as he used to be shied and reserved. Now he dances and sings with almost every song and enjoys all the other children. We even have CD's of all the songs so we can sing and dance at home or in the car. The teacher is amazing and we truly look forward to our music class each week!" --Stephanie
