Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music & movement program for children from birth through age 5—and the grownups who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes & facilitates adult involvement.

Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning.

Class Offerings:
Babies (birth to 8 months)
Family (mixed-age, birth to 5 years w/ parents&caregivers)
Big Kids (5 to 8, parents-optional)

Three 10-week Sessions: Winter (Jan-Mar), Spring (Apr-June), Fall (Sept-Dec.); 6-week Summer (July/Aug); 3-week Holiday (December)

Free demo classes are available the first and last two weeks of every 10-week session; sign up at valleycatmusic.com/demos.aspx

We sing, chant, dance, improvise, and play lots of age-appropriate instruments (egg shakers, rhythm sticks, bells, drums (djembes for Big Kids), & resonator bells (xylophone keys) and use scarves, parachutes, & balls to "work" toward basic music competence through engaging activities & parental modeling. In the Big Kids class, parents are optional and the more structured, game-oriented activities lead to basic music literacy (identifying pitches & writing rhythm). See valleycatmusic.com for more info!

Classes are small, 6-12 kids, and last for 45 min. (Babies, Family) or 60 min. (Big Kids). Each 10-week session has its own song collection, nine in all, so you can attend for three years without repeating a song! Materials include two CDs & an illustrated songbook each session, plus an introductory DVD for new families. The Big Kids students have their own materials (CDs and songbook binder), including HomePlay pages and solfège cards.

Other Offerings:
• birthday parties
• special event entertainment
