Childcare and Early Learning Settings
Picture a preschool or childcare center where music is a seamless part of classroom life—where teachers joyfully lead music activities, and where children look forward to singing and playing with songs together. Then imagine that you, the parent, know these same songs, sing them in music activities at home with your child, and also get to share special music times at school. Just think of the bond this can create among you, your child, their teachers, and the whole school community! That's what Music Together In School looks like.
Featuring an artistically conceived flow of songs, rhythmic rhymes, instrumental jam sessions, fingerplays, and movement activities, our weekly in-school classes are 30- to 45-minutes long and taught by Music Together specialists in cooperation with classroom teachers at your child’s school. The combination and types of activities are research-based, so they support children’s developing competence in tonality and rhythm, even after the activities evolve into creative musical play and a good bit of genuine, silly fun!
Classroom teachers follow through on the weekly sessions, adapting activities to their curriculum and using music to support the children’s learning and development in many areas. And children get to “bring the music home,” so that you and your child can share the songs and activities learned in school and deepen your child’s experience at home. Not only will your child crave the repetition—you’ll really appreciate knowing what your child is learning at school and joining in on the fun!
