Music Together in the Park (0-5)

Mixed-Ages (0-5) INDOORS

Your Music Together teacher will lead musical activities for the whole family to sing, play, move and jam along to. Even though we're outside, each class has been designed as an active music-making experience you and your little one to connect through music. Bring your blanket and your instruments to the park and let us lead you and your family through 35 minutes of singing, dancing, and jamming with your community.

Classes are appropriate for children under 5, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged!) to participate in the musical fun. 

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 Together Online (0-5)

With Music Together® Online, you’ll have access to the same high-quality music and movement curriculum loved by millions of families and teachers around the world—from home!

Like all our classes, Music Together Online is designed to teach the way young children learn: through play. During each online music class, Music Together teachers from your local center will lead music activities for the whole family to sing, play, and jam along to and show you how to make everyday items like dish towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. Even though your teacher is on the screen, each class has been designed as an active music-making experience for little ones and their grownups.

All classes will use the award-winning songs from one of our 12 song collections. When you enroll, you will receive a code to access your music and digital songbook through our award-winning Hello Everybody app. At many centers, you’ll also receive an invitation to an online community exclusively for enrolled parents, with bonus at-home activities and inspiration to keep the music-making going throughout the week.

Classes are appropriate for children under 5, but the entire family is welcome (and encouraged!) to participate in the musical fun.

This FAMILY-STYLE class is for MIXED AGES. Families have one or more children in the age range of 0-5 years old. 

Child development researchers have found that grouping together children of varying ages fosters natural, family-style learning. The hallmark of the Music Together program, our Mixed-age Class gives children the environment they need to grow musically while interacting both socially and musically with peers of different ages. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults support their children's learning with their participation. 

All children are sounders and movers, and their natural aptitude for music blossoms in a sufficiently rich music environment. In fact, when given a supportive music environment, children learn to sing and dance as naturally as they learn to walk and talk.


How is this possible? Children learn differently than adults. They learn instinctively and constantly. They teach themselves through imitation and play, through being immersed in their environment, and through every interaction with adults and older children. The family-like setting of Music Together's mixed-age classes enables siblings to attend together, creating an ideal learning environment where infants, toddlers, and preschoolers can freely participate at their own levels.

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.
