Music Together® is an internationally recognized program for children from birth to age five, and of course the grownups too! Since 1987, Music Together® has been bringing the world of music and movement to children's lives. Founded by Kenneth K. Guilmartin, who realized the importance of music in early childhood, created a music and movement experience for children to learn through playful yet developmentally appropriate musical activities. Music Together® is a magical musical experience that brings families together; a true bonding experience.
Music Together® believes that children learn best from their role models (parents or caregivers) who are making music. So by participating together, in class and at home, children can learn to sing in tune, hold rhythm, and participate in the music culture around them.
As a Music Together® teacher, I absolutely love to teach young children the the amazing effects music can have on their minds, body, and souls. We come together for a fun-filled 45 minutes to sing, dance, play instruments, and so much more!
