A Music Together class is:
- A music class for babies, toddlers, and young children featuring songs, chants, rhythm and movement activities, and instrument play in every class.
- A "mommy and me" class, and more! Parents, grandparents, and caregivers are invited to share music fun along with their children. You don't have to be an expert to join in the fun.
- Mixed-age classes where babies, toddlers, and preschoolers
can all play together, with opportunities for learning at every
developmental level. Siblings can play together in the same class!
- Babies-only classes for extra parent support, and Big Kids™ classes for children ages 5-7
- A rich curriculum that supports your child’s learning style - whether your child is quiet and focused, or active and bouncy.
- Sophisticated recordings that you might enjoy as much as
your child, with great arrangements of original and traditional songs
from around the world
- New ways to play with your child – all through the week!
Music Together is a research-based, developmentally appropriate
early childhood music curriculum which strongly encourages and supports adult involvement. Internationally recognized since 1987, the Music Together curriculum is now offered by thousands of licensed Music Together centers all around the world. Heartland Music Together is proud to offer this outstanding curriculum here in Louisville, KY.
We know that all children are musical—able to 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. By emphasizing informal musical experiences—play and exploration—over formal musical concepts, we help make music-making easy and accessible to a wide range of ages and abilities. Children learn from a very early age that they can be music producers instead of passively receiving it from CDs, TV or online media.
We believe in bringing families together through music. Music Together classes provide a setting where families can play together, but even more, we provide tools and ideas for spontaneous family play all through the week. Research in the Music Together Lab School confirms what we already knew: children learn best from the powerful role model of parents, caregivers and early childhood professionals who actively demonstrate music making —no matter what their level of musical expertise.
