Music Together™  Fall, Winter and Spring

9/8/14 - 6/15/15

Music Together™  Fall, Winter and Spring
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays (Class times vary)

Music Together®, an internationally recognized music and movement program, encourages early childhood music development for infant, toddler and pre-school children through mixed-aged classes that include parents and caregivers. It pioneered the concept of a research based, developmentally-appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement, and it is fun! The Music Together approach develops every child’s birthright of basic music competence by encouraging the actual experiencing of music through playful activities rather than by the learning of concepts or information about music. Fee includes two professionally recorded CDs of the semester's songs, rhythm chants, and play along music; a new songbook with illustrations and activities; and Music Together at Home: Helping Your Child Grow Musically, a book and DVD designed to educate parents and caregivers about music in their children's lives. An exciting new collection of songs is presented each semester! Birth-5 years. Parent or caregiver participates with child (does not need to be 1:1 ratio of adult and child - one adult to two children is okay). One infant, aged nine months or younger at time of registration, may attend free with a registered sibling. One infant per family, please. For questions about Music Together ®, please contact www.littlestepsmusic.com or 703.536.4706 or LittleStepsMusic@gmail.com.

Neutral tone paper has a white paper base and will give your prints the classic black and white look. Warm tone paper has an off-white/creamy-white paper base with warmer black tones and is widely used for landscapes and portraits. (Photo credit: Joe Yablonsky)
