How Does Music Learning Support All Learning? Wiggling, singing, and laughing with your child is so much fun—it’s easy to forget how much learning is taking place! Our research-based curriculum develops basic music skills such as singing in tune and moving with accurate rhythm. It nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence and supports social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Because these benefits build over time, children enjoy the fullest growth in each of these areas when they participate in Music Together® classes as consistently as possible up through kindergarten. Call today to sign up for one of our exciting class sessions!
