Welcome to Music Together of Ithaca!

 

What is Music Together®?

Music Together is an internationally-recognized early childhood music and movement program for children birth through age six. First offered in 1987, Music Together pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally-appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement. Ongoing research guarantees a high-quality program.

About Our Classes...

Our goal is to nurture your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement through informal, playful and FUN activities. We encourage children and adults to participate at their own level, without any expectation of performance.  

  •  Fully trained, registered Music Together teachers lead groups of six to twelve children and their parents or caregivers in forty-five minutes of music and movement experiences.
  • Each week class offers a dozen songs and along rhythmic rhymes, including fingerplays, small and large movement activities, and instrument play-along jam session!
  • Children and their adults have opportunities to create and improvise - making up new words to songs, offering movement ideas, making silly sounds, and sharing musical ideas from the family's play at home.
  • The relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented classroom setting respects and supports the unique learning styles, developmental levels, and creating a strong sense of community. 
  • A new song collection featuring original and traditional songs with an intriguing and wonderfully wise variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.

 

Each Semester Includes:

  • 10 weekly mixed age classes, 45 minutes of PURE FUN with your child every week!
  • A professionally recorded CD with songs, rhythmic chants, "play along" music, plus tonal and rhythm patterns. 
  • Beautifully-illustrated songbook with lots of activity ideas for making music at home.
  • "Music Together at Home: Helping Your Child Grow Musically" parent DVD for newly enrolled families.
  • Parent Education Seminar on a topic in child development.
