Mostly because it's fun and the whole family & you can all do it ‘TOGETHER’ in and out of class without glowing screens. And also because 98% of all humans are born with enough potential at birth to be competent singers and dancers. That potential goes away, so you need to provide your children with the chance to be musical early in life. Also, research suggests that at least a year of Music Together supports ALL future learning. But this last factor is only an added bonus. Music Together is not just fun, it is a well-thought-out, ongoing research-based, educationally sound approach to music learning.

Compare and contrast Music Together with what you want for your family and local programming choices.
If you think it’s a talent to sing and dance, you’re mistaken. Being musical is a value. No matter what you think of your own ability, YOU (and major caregivers) are the only one to give over any value system. If your child loves music and moving, then bond with them that way. If you wait, you lose out on supporting neural aptitude.
Music Together is not just a once a week activity. It is a semester of learning that builds from week to week and semester to semester. With a research based curriculum, Music Together Dallas will aid your family in all future learning. At home, in the car, at the grandparents’ house, Music Together Dallas involves the whole family with the CDs, Songbook, Hello Everybody App & Family Music Zone. The songs and the education will be with your family long after your child has aged out of our classes.
No, that would be boring! Music Together provides each family with a CD and songbook for the semester. And, whether they know it or not, whoever is in the class is exposed to a complete ‘ear buffet’ of every musical element. Like any language, immersion is the only way to really learn it. Formally teaching a language doesn’t achieve any long-lasting goals.
Brilliant question! We have the most generous makeup policy you will find! If you can’t make your class, schedule a makeup class. Never ever miss a class. On top of that deal, if you don’t have any makeup classes in your bank and there are open slots on a day you need an extra experience - take an extra makeup.

If we have to postpone for some unexpected reason (power outage, weather), we will email the class participants and call everyone who doesn't respond to our email within a short amount of time. When a postponement occurs, we tack the missed class on to the end of the semester so you don't miss a class.
Both or either parent, grandparents or caregivers are welcome to attend class at any time – no need to ask. Whole family music making in your home is extremely valuable to your child's musical development and attending class occasionally helps the other family members to join in at home.
A child will never be able to disrupt class! YOUR music together experience will provide you insights to your child’s development behavior and give you tools to cope both in and out of class with every age and stage.
Don't be. Your highly trained music together teacher will help you and the whole class — one big family— to appreciate and participate in an organic mixed aged music making experience.
There is a $45 non-refundable charge for cancellation after enrollment (in addition to a $30 non-refundable registration fee where applicable). No refunds will be provided after the first class. Partial credit may be given in extreme circumstances.
Currently enrolled families in a Music Together class or preschool program may order replacement or extra copies of song collection CDs or songbooks by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Music Together Dallas has a closed Facebook group for our families that can be used for arranging playdates outside of class, as well as sharing information on children's community theater, musical instrument sales, parent education and more!
The make-up scheduler is to be used by enrolled families to schedule classes they have missed. The drop-in scheduler should be used to reserve and pay for a seat in class when the student isn't enrolled.
In order to do a make-up class, you must be an enrolled student so that you have the music set. Having the music at home enhances the music making in the classroom and allows the educational benefits to continue long after class has ended.
Please contact the office at email@example.com. We do have waitlists if the class is full. If you would like to see a new class time offered and have a few friends interested in the same time, we would consider adding the class for you the following semester.
This class is similar to a mixed age class but is designed to mirror some of the ways children are learning in their preschool classroom. However, in this family-style class the teacher may extend musical activities to include exploration in rhythm improvisation, independent singing, dance improvisation, and dramatic play. The Music Together approach has been integrated with great success into the preschool setting and we utilize our experience in that realm to inform our work in the Masters classroom.
Yes. Remember that you are *still* your child's most important role model, especially during this crucial stage of primary music development. Your participation and enjoyment is essential to their musical growth. The most important things you can model for your child are simply pleasure, interest, and the *desire* to participate in music activities!
Yes, younger siblings are welcome to attend the Masters class with their older brothers and sisters.
