Does your child attend nursery or preschool? Please contact us to discuss the possibility of bringing Music Together to your child’s school.
Music Together preschool classes include an artistically conceived flow of songs, nursery rhymes, instrumental jam sessions, finger plays, and movement activities. The combination and types of activities are research-based and support children’s developing competence in tonality and rhythm. In addition, activities evolve from the child’s world and include vocal play, animal sounds, rhythm play, language play, and a good bit of genuine, silly fun. Children experience fifty to seventy-five songs a year and become familiar with important aspects of music-making – moving in rhythm, singing in various tonalities, improvising, listening, using language in musical ways, dancing, and “reading” song book pages.
The Music Together specialist and the classroom teachers work together to make music part of daily classroom life, extending to other curriculum areas like language, art, and math. Music extends to family life, too, as children “bring the music home” to their parents through the Music Together family CD and illustrated songbook.
Music in School
- Classroom teachers participate in class and follow through during the week, adapting activities to their curriculum needs and interests.
- Recordings, songbooks, and teaching materials are provided for classroom use.
Music at Home
- Children “bring the music home” for adult-child musical play, sharing the songs and activities learned in school.
- Each family receives their own copy of our professional Music Together recordings and songbooks.
- Parents appreciate knowing what their children are learning—and joining in on the fun!
Music Building Community
- Children learn from the model of music participation in class and at home.
- Children, parents, teachers, and staff make music together at school-wide events.
- The musical experiences provide adults with a new arena for observation, evaluation, and appreciation of the child’s cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development.
- The joy of extended family music at home and in school creates a natural circle of learning that builds parent/child, parent/teacher and parent/school relationships.
