Ages 0 - 8 July 11th - August 17th, 2023 | 6 week session

Music Together is an international early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age 8—and the grownups who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.


Your child will love going for a musical ride with “Ridin’ in the Car” and “Trot to Grandma’s House” this semester. We’ll dance with “Don Alfredo baila,” march and scamper with “The Tailor and the Mouse,” and go “Pop!” with that good ol’ classic weasel! With 23 songs and chants (plus the Hello Song and Goodbye, So Long, Farewell, of course!), you’ll have lots of new songs and chants to keep the music going all winter long!

Summer 6-Week Sessions are: 

  • Tuesday’s at 9:00 & 10:15 am – July 11th -August 15th
