Music Together St. John's was featured in the Weekend Life (Section D) of The Telegram on Saturday, September 17, 2011. Read all about our exciting beginnings in St. John's HERE.
According to Centre Director, Stephanie Rockwood, classes involve both children and parents or other caregivers in informal singing, rhythmic rhymes, moving, listening, and instrument playing activities that are developmentally appropriate for very young children. Continuing the activities informally at home is made easier by the CD, songbook and parent education materials included in the cost of tuition. Because Music Together is based on a family model of learning, classes are mixed-age, and siblings under 5 may attend class together.
The Music Together philosophy is based on the recognition that all children are musical. An environment of informal music activities should be made available to all children. Because today's families tend to passively consume music through recordings and concerts rather than participate in music activities, many children are deprived of the opportunity to learn basic music skills the way they learn almost everything else: from the example of their primary caregivers. Music Together stresses that parents do not have to be skilled musicians to provide this opportunity, and that enthusiastic participation is more important than getting the notes right.
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement curriculum for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and the adults who love them. Originally offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement. Music Together classes are now offered in thousands of communities in 40 countries around the world.
