Music Together®

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.

Each semester, families receive an information rich Family Resource Guide containing the song collection CD, digital download, and more.  Families also receive an illustrated songbook full of music-making ideas and access to the Family Music Zone, where there is a wealth of resources, activities, and information to help you make the most of your experience with us.  In addition, families new to the program receive a parent guide DVD and booklet, “Music Together® at Home: Helping Your Child Grow Musically.”

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 The Upper St Clair Community & Recreation Center.

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.

Each semester, families receive an information rich Family Resource Guide containing the song collection CD and a digital download code to access the Family Music Zone at www.musictogether.com, along with an illustrated songbook that’s filled with music-making ideas for spontaneous music play beyond the weekly classes.
