Our Music Together® classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. In your Music Together class, every week you’ll sing, play, dance, and jam along with your child and other families. Just by joining in the fun you can make a huge difference in your children’s music development. That’s because children learn through experimentation and the model of the grownups they love: YOU! Regardless of your music ability, before you know it you’ll be sharing movement and lyric ideas, making silly sounds, and singing along.
