Music Together® Programs
For hundreds of thousands of families worldwide, Music Together® children and their grownups joyfully share songs, rhymes, movement, and instrument play, both in music class and in their daily lives.
A pioneer in early childhood music and movement education, Music Together offers classes for children from birth through kindergarten, in which parents and caregivers actively participate. All children are sounders and movers, and their natural aptitude for music blossoms in a sufficiently rich music environment. In fact, when given a supportive music environment, children learn to sing and dance as naturally as they learn to walk and talk.

Fully trained, registered Music Together® teachers lead children and the adults that love them in 45 minutes of joyful, fun music and movement experiences.
Each weekly class offers fun songs and chants, music and movement, and instrument play. The songs are drawn from the current song collection you will take home.
Children and their adults have opportunities to create and improvise – making up new words to songs, offer movement ideas, making silly sounds, and sharing musical ideas.
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.
Families receive a new CD each term along with an illustrated songbook that is filled with music-making ideas for spontaneous music play beyond the weekly classes. They also have access to the Music Together® Family Music Zone
Music Together® Generations Classes
he Generations music class is a Mixed-Age Music Together class with the sweetest twist: the addition of senior participants. Kids and their grownups visit their “Musical Grandfriends” at a local aged care facility and spend time making music as a large extended family.
These intergenerational music classes for seniors and children are popular with elders because the fun songs and children’s liveliness and laughter help to brighten up everybody’s day. Making music together connects people in ways that few other activities can, and this type of class bridges the generations by helping seniors, staff, parents, and kids form new and satisfying relationships.
Generations Music Together classes in Sunraysia are offered in collaboration with Hands Up Mallee. This partnership allows us to offer a number of fully funded enrolments to families who are experiencing financial need, or other access barriers.

Music Learning Supports all Learning
Wiggling, singing, and laughing with your child is so much fun – it’s easy to forget how much learning is taking place! Our research-based curriculum not only develops music skills, it nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence while also supporting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Because these benefits build over time, children enjoy the fullest growth in each of these areas when they participate as consistently as possible up through kindergarten.
Your Role is Essential
Young children learn through play and experimentation and by watching and listening to the grownups they love. Setting an example as an enthusiastic participator in music activities is the best thing any parent or caregiver can do to help set a child on the road to a lifelong love of music. Parents don’t need to have music skills – they just need a desire to play and have fun with their children! Our teachers are specially trained to create a safe atmosphere so you can happily join in, experiment, or even get silly – and feel closer to your child while doing so.
