For children birth to age 5 with parents or caregivers

Music Together® classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. This research-based program uses playful song and movement to help children learn to sing in tune, keep a beat and gain confidence in the music of their culture.

Each 10-week session (6-week session in Summer) includes a weekly 45-minute class. All families receive a songbook, a high quality recording, and digital access to the session’s current song collection. Classes are mixed ages, taught by professionally trained and registered Music Together instructors. Tuition assistance is available on a sliding scale.
