find out more about Music Together®

Experience the joy of family music!®

 

Come see what hundreds of families in Portland are raving about: Music Together’s® premiere early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners and the adults who love them, where you can sing and dance up a storm in family style, mixed age classes at 8 locations throughout the Portland metro area! Or you can bring your baby to our infant classes or your older child to our Bigger Kids classes.

Music Together is based on the premise that all kids are musical and that parents are crucial for activating and nurturing their child’s music development. Just like language development, the early years are critical for developing basic music competence.

Music Together classes build on your child’s natural enthusiasm for music and movement and provide a good foundation for future instruction in dance or instrument study. Best of all it’s fun!

Ten weekly, 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences – developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers – regardless of their own musical ability. Each semester you enroll in a class, you will receive a color, illustrated songbook, one CD, and a code giving you access to Music Together’s® brand-new Family Music Zone. There, you’ll be able to download the songs from the current collection and explore fun content created just for you.

Each semester includes:

  • Ten weekly 45-minute classes teaching a new song collection every fall, winter and spring
  • Music Together at Home: Helping your child grow musically – a DVD for new Music Together families
  • New professionally recorded CD of the semester’s songs, rhythm chants, “play along” music, and tonal and rhythm patterns. Nine collections of music, one for each semester, rotated over three years
  • Beautifully illustrated songbook with family activities to enjoy at home
  • Semi-annual family newsletter and informative national website
  • Parent education to help adults understand and enhance their child’s musical development

“Music Together has been magical. Both my children have found their theatrical fervor and their voice to sing out loud over the many years we have participated. Music education is critical for creative thinking and expression of ourselves, and Music Together has led my children down this beautiful path! Thank you for 5 wonderful years!”
