Teachers

Each of our teachers has successfully completed the training offered by Music Together® LLC and has a fundamental understanding of the Music Together approach to early childhood tonal and rhythmic development. Our teachers lead the class activities, and guide parents and caregivers through the rediscovery of the joy and educational value of informal music making with young children and their families.

 

First offered in 1987, Music Together pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes adult participation. Children learn most easily from their parents and primary caregivers. The basics of music can be most easily absorbed in a child’s earliest years. A child’s work is a child’s play and a child’s play is a child’s work….play is an integral part of our music making together.

 

It is thrilling to teach young children and adults when it matters most!
