Classes in Rockville, Gaithersburg, the Kentlands, Potomac, and Poolesville

Join us for the Bells song collection this winter!

We'll learn lots of great songs and activities, including a rousing rendition of the American folk song "Alabama Gal" - it's great for dancing with a partner even when you're not at a hoedown! Our version of this traditional tune features banjo, harmonica, and cajon (a Peruvian box drum). The Bells collection also includes Music Together favorites "Me, You, and We," which is often one of the first songs our little ones learn to sing, "Trot Old Joe," and "The Bells of Westminster." In addition to weekly classes, tuition includes materials for you to enjoy at home, access to the online Family Music ZoneTM, and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas.

Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?

ClefTone Studios offers Music Together®, an internationally recognized early childhood music program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, we pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.

Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from recordings or TV.

Parent/caregiver participation is an essential (and delightful) component of this program. Music Together gives you the opportunity to fully participate in class with your child as we explore what music sounds like, looks like, and feels like. Music Together encourages you to bring music into your family's daily life and gives you lots of fun ideas on how to do so. Together, we will encourage musical exploration and nurture your child's musical development in a safe, creative environment.

Children in Music Together mixed-age classes participate at their own level and when they are ready: there is no performance pressure whatsoever. Children are not required to sit still; rather, they are encouraged to respond spontaneously to the musical environment. We use singing, movement, rhythmic chants, instruments, and lots of other ways to express ourselves musically.
And here's a secret: the adults have as much fun as the children!
