Music Is an Essential Part of the Core Curriculum

All children are musical, and music as a part of a preschool's core curriculum makes full use of its powerful effects for young children. We’re all sound-makers and movers from birth, so moving and making music is natural to us in all our developmental activities. Music Together can help children to learn music in ways that engage and delight them throughout the school day, and enhance the curriculum that the classroom teachers are already using.

Music Together Preschool Classes: 

  • Help children to learn music in developmentally appropriate ways.
  • Support cognitive, language, emotional, social, and physical development.
  • Give parents enjoyable and significant ways to relate to their children.
  • Engage at-risk children.
  • Enhance happiness and well-being in your school community.

Music Together Preschool Curriculum

Many schools have a music program, but these programs usually fall somewhere along a spectrum, with music education at one end and music entertainment at the other. The Music Together preschool music program, incorporates music education into the daily classroom routine. Music then becomes an essential part of the preschool’s core curriculum.

Since the 1980s, Music Together has complemented a variety of preschool approaches, including Montessori, High/Scope, Reggio Emilia, Creative Curriculum, and Head Start. The program aligns with standards set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and supports the Head Start Performance Standards. For more information about program alignment click here, or contact the In-School Services Department if you have further questions.

Music Learning Supports All Learning®

Research using the Music Together Preschool program curriculum shows that music-learning supports all learning: language, cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development. Our program model includes a trained professional specializing in early childhood music education supported by classroom teacher and parent participation.

The Music Together Preschool program model is based on a developmental approach to music education rather than a performance-oriented approach. We understand that a great deal of development needs to take place before children are able to “speak” the music language and competently express themselves by singing and moving. Through our fun and participatory curriculum, children develop their tonality and singing as well as rhythm and movement, both individually and in a group. This basic music competence will form a strong foundation for the life-long enjoyment of music and, if desired later, developmentally-appropriate musical instruction.
