Music Together® is committed to helping families, caregivers, and early childhood professionals rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal music experiences.
Upon selecting and settling into our new community home, CKME will offer Music Together® – an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. The Music Together® program pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and 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. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.
Central to the Music Together approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents and caregivers who are actively making music. The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life.
We are proud to announce that Cory Goodrich, professional actress, children’s entertainer, and early childhood educator, has successfully completed Music Together®’s training program and is on track to be the Music Together® Center Director in our new community home.
