Music Together   (Ages 0-5 with parent or caregiver)

7/22/14 - 8/15/14

Music Together   (Ages 0-5 with parent or caregiver)
Days Vary (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. Birth-5 years (no skill level required) 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). 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! For questions about Music Together ®, please contact www.littlestepsmusic.com or 703.536.4706 or LittleStepsMusic@gmail.com
