In-School Programs (pre-schools)
Music Together is the leading music curriculum for early-learning settings serving children ages birth through seven, offered at thousands of locations around the world. A comprehensive, research-based program, Music Together is designed to be easily integrated into any school environment, such as childcare settings, preschools, and public, independent, and faith-based schools. The Music Together curriculum is designed to benefit everyone it touches—children, families, teachers, and the entire school community.
Family involvement is an integral component of Music Together. Each child brings home materials, which include professionally recorded CDs and illustrated songbooks, which encourage family music-making at home, support engagement in the classroom, and encourage positive parent-child interactions and family bonding through music. And, in addition to these benefits, bringing the music home is simply great fun for everyone!
Schools adopting the full Music Together curriculum receive access to a variety of materials and services to aid in their implementation of the program, including:
CDs and songbooks for children and teachers
SongCards for the children and teachers to use in the classroom
Skill development and song workshops each semester
A specialist DVD and training guide
A classroom teacher in-service DVD and guide
Teaching DVDs for each song collection
An online network for information and support
A specialist resource website
Both one-on-one and conference-call mentoring with SingSteps and Music Together staff
An on-staff, board-certified music therapist to consult about working with children who have special needs

In Music Together's mixed-age classes, children from birth through kindergarten participate together with their parents and/or caregivers in a rich musical environment. Research shows that grouping together children of a variety of ages fosters natural, family-style learning free of age-specific expectations. That's the essence of Music Together mixed-age family classes. Younger kids enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older kids learn by leading younger ones; and parents love that siblings can enroll and learn together in class, as well as continuing the learning at home.
Although the educational value of babies attending the mixed-age class format is indisputable, new parents also have the option to join classes specifically designed for their newborn babies (8 months of age or younger). With the mentoring of an experienced Music Together teacher, parents learn how to interact musically with their babies and support their natural, inborn capacity for music.
Not only do musical bonds develop between parents and babies, community bonds often develop among class participants as they begin their new and exciting journeys together.
