Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! It’s time for holiday shopping for the children in our lives!
While it’s definitely fun to revisit those old toy favorites that we grew up with, selecting a gift for the age 8 and under crowd can be especially daunting for those aunties, uncles and grandparents who don’t live nearby.
Instead of giving another doll, truck, book or gift card – why not give a gift that will last a lifetime? The gift of music!
All children are musical and can learn to sing, keep a beat and actively participate in a live music experience. And a fantastic music class will introduce children to the joy of making music rather than passively watching it on TV or listening to your iPod.
The crème de la crème of music classes is hands-down - Music Together – an internationally recognized, early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, first and second graders, and the adults who love them.
What sets Music Together apart from the other run-of-the-mill music classes is their research-based early music curriculum and philosophy. They believe that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music.
Now serving 2000 communities in over 25 countries, Music Together’s early childhood music program supports this natural bonding experience – connecting families and communities across the globe as they express and explore the basic human instinct for making music.
