Music Together ®
Now accepting registrations for the Fall 2018 semester!
New songbook this fall!!
The first edition of our new family songbook series is here! Each song in the Fiddle collection is brought to life through colorful and engaging illustrations by award-winning artist Jaime Kim. The new book will inspire your family to play with music all week long. You'll find it helpful to learn the lyrics, as a jumping-off point for creative storytelling, and to learn more about the songs you're singing in class. Your child may enjoy snuggling with you and singing through the whole book at once—or opening to a page to tell you what song they want to sing!
About the Illustrator
What is Music Together?
Music Together is a research-based, internationally renowned music program for children birth through 5 and their parents, grandparents, or caregivers. Throughout the course of a Music Together semester families will sing songs, play instruments, chant rhythms, and move together in relaxed and playful settings. Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are able to participate in their own ways and at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages and the music is learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of young children.
Parents and caregivers are able to contribute to the development of each child's music skills regardless of their own musical abilities and learn how to help that development continue at home.
Every semester features a new collection of songs (there are 9 song collections in all plus 3 summer collections that include songs from the other 9) and each collection includes arrangements of original as well as traditional songs in a wide variety of tonalities, meters, and styles.
Also, and definitely most importantly, Music Together is 45 minutes of pure fun with your child each week!
The Fall Semester at Bornstringed Studio will begin the week of September 10 and will continue for 10 weeks. This semester will feature the Fiddle Collection of songs! Classes will be held at Sanctuary Church in Marshfield. Register now or get in touch with Sarah if you have questions.
