Our Song Collections
With twelve song collections rotated over three years, you and your child can build a large, varied repertoire of songs in different tonalities and meters, and from different cultural origins.
Our Music Together collections are not sequential, so a family can begin classes at any time with any collection. Enrolled families take home a beautifully illustrated songbook, a CD, and a unique download code to access the music digitally (as well as bonus activities) each session.
The music is pitched in just the right range for children’s voices and includes songs, rhythmic chants, tonal and rhythm patterns, and instrumental play-alongs, all in a rich variety of tonalities and meters. Original songs and arrangements by the program coauthors make these collections especially unique.
Each of the twelve Music Together Song Collections also includes traditional American folk songs and chants, and music from many other cultures, always including at least one song per collection in a language other than English. Outstanding instrumentalists play a variety of instruments, such as guitar, bass, flute, violin, keyboards, and percussion. Also all of the songs are suitable for mixed-age groups, perfect for families with children of different ages.
Music Together’s song collections are research-based and artistically conceived and produced. They are also classroom- and family-tested. Since 1987, the feedback of hundreds of teachers and thousands of families has been incorporated into these constantly evolving materials.
We have a NEW family songbook series (since Fall 2018) for Mixed Age, Generations, and Babies Only classes!
Each song is brought to life through colorful, engaging illustrations by award-winning artist Jaime Kim and children's book illustrator Gerald Kelley. The books will inspire your family to play with music all week long.
COMING UP THIS FALL!
Rhythm Kids* will be using Kangaroo Collection
Mixed Age &
will be using Bongos Collection
Mixed Age and Babies Only classes are using Bongos Collection this fall. You and your baby, toddler, or pre-schooler will groove to the beat of "Funga Alafia," dance to a jazzy rendition of "Hey Diddle Diddle," go "Walking Through the Woods," and play some "Tricks with Sticks!" There are twenty-five songs to delight your family! In addition to weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings and materials for you to use at home and online access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app. Join us for this session and fill your family's fall with music and fun!
*Rhythm Kids classes use different song collections; each one is named for an animal. This fall it's Kangaroo, featuring drumming patterns inspired by the Australian didgeridoo. We'll learn a traditional song and "sit-down dance" from the Torres Strait Islanders called "Taba Naba", and with "Hand in Hand" we'll explore body percussion and sing a three-part round. We'll jam and solo-sing to the reggae beat of "Every Day's a Good Day" and, of course, have lots of fun moving like "Krazy Kangarooz!" All 22 songs in this collection have been chosen and arranged specifically to support each student's music development.
Music Together provides music that inspires the whole family to
listen and play along, both at home and on the go.
The award-winning music is truly loved by children and grownups alike.
