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 (plus bonus activities) digitally 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. 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.

will be using
Mixed Age and Babies Only classes are using Harmonica Collection this summer. You and your baby, toddler, or pre-schooler will hide then pop out with "Jack-in-the-Box," blast off with "Rocketship," make farm animal sounds along with the traditional Argentinian folk song, "Vengan a Ver," and take time for a snuggle as you sing along to the soft and soothing lullaby, "Raisins and Almonds." In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes materials for you to use at home, access to the online Family Music Zone, and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas. Join us for this session and fill your family's summer with music, family, and fun!
*Rhythm Kids classes use different song collections; each one is named for an animal. This summer it's Tiger. We'll explore the Tiger Rhythm with drumming patterns from Mali and India. Children will discover the enchantment of Indian music through the song "Chandamaame Raave" and even learn to sing a verse in Telugu! We'll explore body percussion, scatting, and part-singing with "Singing in Harmony." "Tiger, Tigress in the Night" will delight children with imaginative play, drumming, and dancing. And with "Tiger Tracks," we'll get to prowl and growl as we follow a tiger through his day. All song selections 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.
