What Is Music Together®?
At Music Together of the Abingtons, we are proud to offer the early childhood music program Music Together®
Since 1987, Music Together has introduced millions of children, parents, and teachers around the
world to the powerful benefits of having music in their lives. Today, classes for children ages birth
through grade two are found around the world—including right here in the Abingtons.
From babyhood through the early elementary years, Music Together nurtures each child’s natural
musicality in a playful, musically rich learning environment. Our research-based music classes are
designed to be non-formal and non-performance oriented, so your child can learn at his or her own
pace, in a way that’s developmentally appropriate.
By enrolling in our children’s music program, you’ll experience a whole semester of classes led by
our trained teacher. At Music Together of the Abingtons, you’re guaranteed
to learn new songs and music activities to inspire you to bring music into your family’s everyday life.
We Teach the Way Children Learn
At Music Together, we know that children learn differently than adults. They learn instinctively and
constantly, and teach themselves through imitation and play, through being immersed in their
environment, and through interaction with adults and older children. The family-like setting of Music
Together classes creates an ideal learning environment. And it’s all based on research in early
childhood and music development.
Your Role Is Essential
You are your child’s most important music teacher right now! Young children learn through play and
experimentation and by watching and listening to the grownups they love. Setting an example as an
enthusiastic participator in music activities is the best thing any parent or caregiver can do to help set
a child on the road to a lifelong love of music. Parents don't need to have music skills—they just need
a desire to play and have fun with their children! Our teachers are specially trained to create a safe
atmosphere so you can happily join in, experiment, or even get silly—and feel closer to your child
while doing so.
Music Learning Supports All Learning®
Wiggling, singing, and laughing with your child is so much fun, it's easy to forget how much learning
is taking place! Our research-based curriculum not only develops music skills, it nurtures creativity,
self-expression, and confidence while also supporting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical
development. Because these benefits build over time, children enjoy the fullest growth in each of
these areas when they participate as consistently as possible up through kindergarten.
