Music Together® rotates through 9 song collections over a 3-year period, so you and your child learn new songs every semester. With songs from a wide variety of musical traditions, and in several languages, you are sure to find a favorite song in each exciting collection!
Each 45-minute class includes songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences. They are research-based, developmentally appropriate for children, and easy for parents and caregivers regardless of their own musical ability.
Every semester you will receive professional recordings to take home (a CD and download code for the app), an illustrated songbook with activity suggestions, digital access to the exclusive Family Music Zone, and new families will also receive a family guide to understanding music development in children.

This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five—and through all nine song collections. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers, grouping children of a variety of ages in one class. This approach fosters natural, family-style learning where younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together.
Each child participates at his or her own developmental level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, observing, or exploring musical instruments. We welcome the whole family to join in this important family music experience, and any caregiver—parents, grandparents, nanny—can bring the child(ren) to class.
Each semester includes:
- Weekly 45-minute classes teaching a new song collection every fall, winter and spring.
- New CDs each semester with the songs, rhythm chants, "play-alongs," tonal and rhythm patterns used in class.
- Beautifully illustrated songbook with family activities to enjoy at home.
- Parent education resources and online resources.
Every child's development benefits from early exposure to music and movement. Because the early months are so important, Music Together offers two options for babies. Babies of any age may choose to attend a mixed age class, whether registered on their own or attending free with an older brother or sister. Babies eight months and younger at the time of registration may alternatively choose to take the Babies class as a one-semester introduction to Music Together. The music activities and materials in this class are specially designed for parents who want to learn as much as possible about music development in infancy. Here you will meet other parents of newborns, and learn a variety of music activities you can recreate at home with your baby. Babies classes are offered according to demand and may not be available every semester. Click here to learn more.
Rhythm Kids™ is for children 4 - 8 years old who are ready to lead musical activities with their peers. Children dig deeper and gain a richer understanding of how music works.
Taught in two levels, one for 4-5 year olds and one for K-2nd graders, each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and play music-based games that reinforce, in a fun, playful manner, the rhythm patterns that we learn in class. Rhythm Kids™ guides children toward developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, where they can begin to take charge, lead others, and be musically creative. Click here to learn more.
