JOIN Music Together®……..
Music is a universal language. It transcends boundaries and has the power to bond people the world around. It reaches beyond culture and language to touch the depths of our souls, express our common emotions, and inspire us all. Now serving 2,500 communities in over 40 countries, Music Together's internationally recognized early childhood music programs support this natural bonding experience. We connect families and communities across the globe as they express and explore the basic human instinct for making music. Are you ready to make some music together?

A Music Together Class is:
  • A community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting.
  • Music learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children.
  • Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers participating at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages.
  • Parents and caregivers contributing to the enrichment of their child’s music environment, regardless of their own musical abilities.
  • A new song collection every semester for three years, featuring  great arrangements of original and traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and cultural styles.


45 minutes of PURE FUN with your child every week!

About Music Together
At Music Together, we understand the importance of music in early childhood—from birth, in fact. Because the truth is, most people are born with enough music aptitude to play in a symphony orchestra when they are adults, if they choose. But first we must learn how to "speak music"—to take the musical instrument we all have, ourselves, developing that musical capacity from a very young age. The sounds we make, our movements, our rhythms—these are the building blocks of music and of early childhood learning. And that's what Music Together is all about. Music is more than instruments and voices. It's more than rhythm and movement. Music is a powerful force that can inspire, create community, and build family bonds. And it can be life-changing to develop our inner music-maker as early as possible.

Internationally Recognized Music Program
Music Together is an internationally recognized music program for children from birth through age 7—and the grownups who love them. Parents, primary caregivers, early childhood professionals—everyone is involved in the educational process. First offered to the public in 1987, we've always been pioneers in the field of early childhood music with truly innovative, high-quality music education and outreach programs that redefine what musical means. We're research-based, so we know our stuff and we're good at what we do. But we're also down to earth, accessible, and all about having a good time. It's a balance that makes us both serious and fun. What can we say? We're serious about having fun!

At the core of the Music Together approach is the idea that young children learn best from the powerful role models of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. Our program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and then facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home in daily life—which is so important to music development and early childhood learning. It's based on the recognition that, in a supportive environment, children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and confidently participate in the music of their culture. Music Together creates that environment! By emphasizing actual music-making experiences, we introduce children to the pleasures of producing music instead of passively consuming it from iTunes or TV. We're very high-touch. Face to face, heart to heart, voice to voice—for a truly bonding and enriching experience.

Music Together is committed to helping families, caregivers, and early childhood professionals rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal music experiences. All our teachers have successfully completed Music Together’s training program. Music Together applies the latest research in early childhood music development to the program.

The years between birth and kindergarten are when most young children learn rapidly, efficiently and joyfully. These years are also crucial to music learning. This is why we encourage you to support your child’s music education by joining us for classes this semester.

Music Together for Valley Families began in 1999 and has been bringing The Joy of Family Music® to many communities throughout the Pioneer Valley in both parent-child classes and in school settings. We feel very grateful to be able to share a program designed to be both educational and tons of fun!
