Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, also kindergarteners and first graders (Rhythm Kids ®), and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.
Central to the Music Together approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life.
Music Together is committed to helping families, caregivers, and early childhood professionals rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal music experiences. All of our teachers have successfully completed Music Together’s training program. Music Together applies the latest research in early childhood music development to the program.
At Pakachoag Music School, we recognize that music classes and lessons are an investment for families on tight budgets. We consistently hear from parents that their investment pays off in terms of the breadth and depth of the experience provided to their child and family.
Here are a few reasons to make Music Together at Pakachoag part of your child’s on-going education, birth to age 7, based on a large body of research which proves that early, positive and age-appropriate experiences with music enhance a child’s:
