Welcome to our community of music makers!
Did you know that all children are musical?
Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?
Experience Music Together® and find out how important--and how fun--your role can be!
Our Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We'll help you provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so.
Early Start Music's mission is to serve the families of the East Bay area through music, play and community building. We want you to join Early Start Music and feel a part of our community of music makers. We strive to create a musically rich and developmentally appropriate musical environment. Because Music Together's curriculum encompasses a total of nine song collections, which can be taken over a three year period without ever repeating a song, we hope to continually inspire you with new beats and tunes.
Basic Principles of the Music Together Philosophy
I. All children are musical.
II. Therefore, all children can achieve basic music competence, which we have defined as the ability to sing in tune and move with accurate rhythm.
III.The participation and modeling of parents and caregivers, regardless of their musical ability, is essential to a child's musical growth.
IV. This growth is best achieved in a playful, developmentally appropriate, non-performance-oriented learning environment that is musically rich yet immediately accessible to the child's-and the adult's!-participation.
