Music Together® and Their Research
Research was the basis for the Music Together classes when it started back in 1987 and now it has spread to over 40 countries and in 2500 communities worldwide. In addition to parent-child classes, Music Together now offers baby-specific classes, mixed-age classes, big kid's classes (for 5-8 year olds), guitar classes for adults, Music Together in-school classes (for students up to 2nd grade) Generations classes (for children, their parents and residents of adult communities), Music Together within Therapy classes, and outreach programs too.
The Music Together philosophy is based on these 4 basic principles:
All children are musical.
All children can achieve basic music competence—the ability to sing in tune and move with accurate rhythm.
The participation and modeling of parents and caregivers—regardless of their musical ability—are essential to a child's musical growth.
Young children’s musical growth occurs best in a playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate setting.
