Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement curriculum for children between birth and grade two and the adults who love them. Originally offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
According to Kenneth K. Guilmartin, Founder/Director of Music Together, “All children have the ability, from birth, to learn music. At Music Together, we introduce children to the pleasures of actively making music, which is critical for their music development. Many parents may not realize that they are their child’s most important music teachers—even if they don’t consider themselves musical. It is not important that caregivers sing or move perfectly; what matters is that they model the enjoyment of making music. We have been providing families with the tools to joyfully and enthusiastically make music together for 25 years and are proud to have impacted so many lives.”
Music Together classes are held in more than 2,500 communities around the world. Classes are offered in Phoenix, Peoria, Paradise Valley, and Scottsdale by Music Together in Phoenix since 1999. For more information, please visit www.MusicTogetherInPhx.com.
