As we continue to practice physical distancing, we know parents are looking for fun online activities to engage their little ones and support their learning. With our interactive online music classes for children five and under (and their grownups!), you now have access to the same high-quality early childhood music and movement curriculum loved by millions of families and thousands of teachers around the world---from the convenience of your home.
During each class, your Music Together teacher will lead music activities for the whole family and show you how to make everyday items like towels, pots, and stuffies into musical props. You'll sing, dance, and jam to fun music including traditional classics from a variety of cultures and Music Together originals. Each class is an active music-making experience, designed to teach the way children learn: through play with the grownups they love.

What is a class like? The children have the freedom to respond according to where they stand developmentally. So do the parents/caregivers. The environment is informal, completely free from performance pressure, and you and your children will enjoy making music instead of passively receiving it from recordings. You and your children will sing along, play various instruments, dance, and listen. Children learn that music is valuable when they observe their parents actively making music themselves.
Take a peek into a class and see how much fun your family can have. Our classes are currently online, but the activities are similar to those shown in the video.
Why Mixed-age? Child development researchers recommend mixed-age groupings because it fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating the older ones, older children learn by leading the younger ones, and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to classes together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. The class provides for a variety of adult-child activities that are fun and offer new ways to play musically at home. Research shows that preschool age children who are slow to warm up to social settings are reassured by the presence of babies and young toddlers in class - the environment is less threatening to them than a setting where all children are their age or older.
