Music Together® Mixed Ages
Fun. Accepting. Uplifting. Magical. These are just a few of the ways that parents describe Music Together. Each week, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers – and the grownups who love them! – gather to make music as a community. Our early childhood music classes give families with children from birth to age 5 the chance to get in touch with their inner musician and connect with other families. We sing, dance, play instruments, make up silly verses, and have a ton of fun in a non-formal learning environment. That means you do not need any training to give your child the gift of music! All you have to do is be willing to play!
We are on a mission to make the world a better place by making it more musical. And you can be part of it by joining us at Music Together Kindred Voices in downtown Carnegie!
The Music Together® Curriculum
The Music Together® curriculum includes a mix of original songs and traditional tunes from the folk, jazz, and world music traditions in a variety of tonalities and meters. By presenting a range of musical styles from lyrical to blues, from folk to boogie, Music Together® provides children with a rich music experience that stimulates and supports their growing music skills and understanding.
Music Together’s nine song collections—each identified by its own color, instrument name, and graphic—are presented in a three-year cycle of three semesters per year. They are non-sequential, so families may join at any semester and attend class for three full years before cycling back to re-experience the collections from their growing children’s ever-changing perspectives. Because music learning is cumulative, with children reaping developmental benefits that build over time, we encourage their participation for as many years as possible from infancy through kindergarten.
Music Together’s song collections have outstanding arrangements that are fun, sophisticated, and loved by children and grownups alike. The music is pitched in just the right range for children’s voices and includes songs, rhythmic rhymes, tonal and rhythm patterns, and instrumental play-alongs. All of the songs are suitable for mixed-age groups, perfect for childcare centers or families with children of different ages.

Music Together® Classes
Fully trained and registered Music Together® teacher, Holly Van Hoey, leads a group of six to twelve children and their parents or caregivers (nannies, babysitters, grandparents, or relatives) in forty-five minutes of music and movement experiences at our beautiful studio in downtown Carnegie.
Music Together’s research based, developmentally appropriate music program develops basic music skills, such as singing in tune and moving with accurate rhythm. It also nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence and supports social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
Each weekly class offers a dozen songs and rhythmic rhymes. We sing, dance, play with drums, bells, shakers, tambourines, scarves, balls, triangles, resonance balls, castanets, ukuleles and more!
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 temperaments of all participants, creating a strong sense of community.
“I highly recommend Music Together at Higher Voice Studio! Holly van Hoey is a fantastic teacher and makes the class fun, relaxed, and educational as children develop important musical skills such as audiation, tuneful singing, and feeling a pulse. This class is definitely a great foundation to any future musical endeavors!”
“We first started coming to Music Together when my son was around a year old. He was learning to walk, talk and all the other big milestones. Miller learned to keep a beat, mimic sounds, and find his inner musician.
As he’s grown, I love how Music Together allows him to explore and express how he wants to make music in a fun, encouraging environment. Miss Holly is a wonderful musician and a supportive teacher. She’s always willing to incorporate his favorite songs into class – even if it’s not from the current session.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Miss Holly and her Music Together class.”
“We’ve been coming for over a year now, and it’s been amazing to watch our son’s growth through participation in the classes. We thought being 1 might be a bit too young initially, but he clearly loves the class so much that it always really makes our day — and Holly I san amazing teacher, for young kids and adults alike!”
