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. They may answer why our classes are so rich and fulfilling for you and your family, and why music is so important to everyone. Enjoy!
