The Music Together® Mission
Making the World a Better Place by Making It More Musical™
In a nutshell: Our mission is to make the world a better place by making it more musical. We do this by providing the highest-quality music and movement classes to families everywhere—and by involving parents and caregivers. When a family starts making music together early in their child's life, their relationship to music changes, and they begin to recognize that they are indeed a musical family!
The Music Together Philosophy
Most people think being musical is a question of talent—you either have it or you don't. While that may sound reasonable, it's completely untrue! All children can learn to dance and sing just as naturally as they learn to walk and talk. With this in mind, we formulated four basic principles that guide everything we do.
The Four Principles of Music Together
All children are born musical.
All children can achieve basic music competence—that is, they can learn to sing in tune and dance accurately to a beat.
It's crucial that parents and caregivers participate in class and model music-making for their children in class and at home, regardless of their own musical ability.
The environment that best fosters young children's musical growth is playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate.
