Music Together® is an internationally recognized, research-based music and movement class for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and the adults who care for them. Music Together® classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical and can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning.
Music Together® unites families by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous music activity at home.
Young Maestros is the ideal introduction to musical study for young children ages 4-6 (piano) and ages 5-7 (guitar). Students will learn basic musical skills (steady beat, rhythm, note values and names) while playing games and making new friends.
