After Demo Handout

Thank you for taking the time to demo Music Together®.  45 minutes is not nearly enough time for your teacher to express the magic that comes with enrollment.  Use this checklist to compare and contrast your experience today with what you want for your family and local programming choices.

 

Music Together is:

  • A Researched music & movement curriculum taught in 45 countries.

  • Not a playgroup.  We don’t entertain children while parents socialize.

  • Ongoing parenting ideas to lessen age 0 - 5 power struggles both in and out of class.

  • Ongoing opportunites to practice parenting ideas in class with like minded adults who are also learning these techniqes that did not come in a manual with your child.

  • Parent Education is a vital component of Music Together.  Learn how to:

    • Track your child’s rhythmic and tonal development.

    • Notice and track your own rhythmic and tonal growth too.

    • Understand the 3 different learning styles and how to parent each one.

    • Understand music aptitude.

  • A Language immersion class. Singing in key and dancing with accurate rhythm are languages and not talents. These are skills best supported from 23 weeks in Utero through 5 years old.

  • A weekly class and more take home materials, than most can even use, to expose EVERYONE to ALL the elements of music. Just do it! No teaching neccessary!

  • Exposure in and out of class so children will develop the skill to sing in key and move with accurate rhythm. Adults may notice their singing and dancing skills improve.

  • A multi-cultural, tonal, rhythmic, age range, social experience that is also a deeply bonding 1 on 1 experience at the same time.

  • Non Performance oriented and Mixed Aged classes means:

    • Some children are more competent music makers than adults based on exposure to rich musical input.  Some younger children are more competent than older children.   

    • Exposure to more social, developmental & cognitive experiences than any preschool environment.

    • Allowing your children to deduct and interact with all ages and developments in a safe and non judgmental learning environment.  

    • Older children hone confidence and leadership skills by playing and not formal direction.

    • Younger children hone social, motor and language skills by socializing and exposure to older children.

    • You can do Music Together with your whole family.

  • Privately researched through the United States Department of Education. This research suggests that long term exposure to the Music Together curriculum will cumulatively support All Future Learning for children 0 - 7 (see specific research stats on our FAQ page online)

  • Great way to meet like minded parents who value quality programming.

  • An added value resource for free and low cost programming outside of class, too!
