What is Music Together®?
Music Together is an innovative music and movement program for children ages newborn to age five years and their parents or caregivers, that is based on the belief that all children are inherently musical. More than a Mommy and Me program this is an activity the whole family can enjoy! Powerful music learning in a relaxed, fun, playful, non-performance-oriented setting, with activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.
All Children Are Musical
At Music Together we believe that music ability is as basic to life as walking or talking, and that it is every child's birthright to participate with pleasure and confidence in the music of our culture. We introduce babies, toddlers and preschoolers to the joys of making music instead of passively receiving it from Cd's and television. And because very young children instinctively respond to and imitate their loved ones, the active participation of parents and caregivers - regardless of their musical ability - is an essential part of the rich musical environment we create. Music Together parents discover what a powerful role model they are for their child, just by having fun with the music themselves! A new song collection every semester for three years, featuring great arrangements of both original and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.
Music Together of Montclair
Opened in the fall of 1998, we like to say we are the FIRST Music Together as we started right here in Montclair, when founder Ken Guilmartin piloted the program with his daughter's class at the Montclair Cooperative School. Once recognized solely in the tri-state area as a research based, grassroots music program for young children, Music Together is now well known throughout the US and across the globe, with centers worldwide in Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Central America, and Australia.
