The Music Together In-School curriculum can.....
Music in school
Music Together specialists teach music and movement classes weekly in cooperation with classroom teachers.
Classroom teachers follow through on weekly sessions, adapting activities to their curriculum needs and interests.
Recordings, songbooks, and teaching materials are provided for classroom use.
Music at home
Children "bring the music home" for parent/child musical play, sharing songs and activities learned in school.
Parents become involved through the Music Together recordings and songbooks given to each family and through special parent events at school.
Parents really appreciate knowing what their children are learning- and joining in on the fun!
Music building community
Children learn from the model of music participation set by both parents and classroom teachers.
Children, parents, teachers, and staff make music together as school-wide events.
The music experiences provide adults with a new arena for observation, evaluation, and appreciation of the child's cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development.
The joy of extended family music at home and in school creates a natural circle of learning that builds parent/child, parent/teacher and parent/school relationships.
