Join us for the Fiddle Song Collection this Fall
Featuring twenty-five beloved Music Together songs and activities you can recreate at home. We'll get to know the mesmerizing "Sounds of Fall," dramatic role play in "Old King Cole," the flair of Spain in "Los Fandangos," and many more!  In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings and materials for you to use at home, a family newsletter with more at-home music-making ideas, online access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app, and a family newsletter full of resources and music-making ideas.

 

You'll find our schedule here and registration information here.

New Songbook News!
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!

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 the best part: the adults have as much fun as the children!
