Music Together® (Ages Birth-5)
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, and the adults 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 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.
Rhythm Kids ™ Level 1
Rhythm Kids Level 1 is the next musical step for your preschool child (ages 4 – 5) with a parent or caregiver. Each week we drum, sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and begin to play music – based games.

• make up their own drumming patterns
• invent new ways to play rhythm instruments (shakers , sticks, etc.)

“Music Together has been such a joy for our family- we are always singing and enjoying the songs from class! Music together has helped me to know how to engage with and help my children grow musically. I have seen such growth in my children over the semesters! I am thankful for the musical foundation Music Together has given my sons and the skills it has given me to help them understand music.” – Lindsay, MT Mom
“We were sitting at dinner the other night and had the Jazz station playing. Both of the girls picked right up on the beat, swaying from side to side. Grace (18 mos) actually started saying the rhythm with the song halfway through. It is amazing what music class has done for them. I am sure Maggie is going to be a singer when she grows up. She has her microphone and just sings all the time!” – Tracy, MT Mom
“Shortly after bringing our daughter, Abbey, home from China at age 2, we began attending Music Together classes at the Grosse Pointe Music Academy. I had no idea what to expect at first but found the classes to be a fun, educational 45 minutes of bonding time with my daughter. We BOTH look forward to the classes each week! It’s a time to sing, play instruments, engage with each other without distraction, and have some fun reminiscent of childhood. The teachers are very kind, enthusiastic and talented individuals who engage well with all of the adults and children. Needless to say, we love Music Together and highly recommend it!” – Music Together Mom
