The Music Together® In School program helps all children learn music in developmentally appropriate ways. Music Together's preschool music program uniquely integrates music experiences at home with those in school to create a music-making community which supports a child’s language, cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development.
Children experience fifty to seventy-five songs a year and become familiar with important aspects of music-making – moving in rhythm, singing in various tonalities, improvising, listening, using language in musical ways, dancing, and “reading” song book pages.
Weekly In School Music Classes
Each week a trained Music Together specialist leads the children and their classroom teachers in a variety of song, movement, and instrument activities. With the help of the Music Together materials—a special teacher-edition songbook and CD—the classroom teacher then builds on the music-class experience during the week. Music becomes part of daily classroom life, extending to other curriculum areas like language, art, and math.
Bringing the Music Home® Encourages Family Music-making
Music extends to family life, too, as children “bring the music home” to their parents through the Music Together family CD and illustrated songbook. The Music Together specialist and the classroom teachers work together to create convenient opportunities for parents to experience the music activities at school, including classroom visits and special parent events.
