Why is music so important to your children, to you, to your family, and to humanity? Three times per year, Music Together® teachers are trained utilizing the latest research on music, children and all the myriad subjects and ideas involved. We are also supplied with a monthly newsletter, online networks, and mentors to help us help you incorporate music into your and your children's lives. Below are just a few articles and videos that may introduce you to some of these concepts, inspire you to learn more, and instruct you about recent research. Enjoy!
