About Music Together®

What’s Music Together®?

Music Together is an internationally recognised early childhood music and movement program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, 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 emphasises and facilitates adult involvement. Now serving 2000 communities in about 30 countries, Music Together programme supports the natural bonding experience, connecting families and communities across the world as they express and explore the basic human instinct for making music. You may be surprised to see your friends start singing your familiar songs from Music Together when you get together at home.

All Children are musical.

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 emphasising 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.

The teacher does not teach but facilitate.

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. Music Together teachers are called “facilitators”. They introduce various ideas to enjoy making music through the class, which is a rich musical environment. By facilitating family participation, the program brings families together and your daily life will be filled with spontaneous musical activity at home.

Best environment for children

A child’s musical growth is best achieved in a playful, developmentally appropriate, non-performance-oriented learning environment that is musically rich yet immediately accessible to the child’s-and the adult’s-participation.

A Music Together Class is

♪ A community of children and their families, and teachers sharing songs, playing instruments, chanting rhythms, and movement activities in relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented settings.

♪ Based on developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children of ages between 0 and 5 years-old.

♪ A mixed-age family-style class in which children participating at their own levels.

♪ Expecting parents and caregivers to contribute to the enrichment of their child’s music environment regardless of their own musical abilities.

♪ A programme where a new song collection is introduced every semester for three years, featuring great arrangements of original and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.

♪ A class of 45minutes of enjoyable time with music and movement in a relaxing atmosphere every week.

Messages from the Teacher

Thanks to my mother who loves nursery rhythms, I have grown up in an environment where music was naturally with me and I have always loved music. Since my daughter was born, it has been my turn to give the pleasure of enjoying and making music to my daughter. Now I want to share the joy of making music with more children and their families, and I have got the opportunity to do it through the programme of Music Together. I look forward to seeing many smiling faces through my classes.
