Our Program

What is Music Together®?

At Music Together of Fayetteville, we are proud to offer the early childhood music program Music Together®. Since 1987, Music Together has introduced millions of children, parents, and teachers around the world to the powerful benefits of having music in their lives. Today, classes for children ages birth through grade two are found around the world---including right here in Fayetteville.

From babyhood through the early elementary years, Music Together nurtures each child’s natural musicality in a playful, musically rich learning environment. Our research-based music classes are designed to be non-formal and non-performance oriented, so your child can learn at his or her own pace, in a way that’s developmentally appropriate.

By enrolling in our children’s music program, you’ll experience a whole semester of classes led by one of our trained teachers. No matter what music class you take at Music Together of Fayetteville, you’re guaranteed to learn new songs and music activities to inspire you to bring music into your family’s everyday life.

We Teach the Way Children Learn

At Music Together, we know that children learn differently than adults. They learn instinctively and constantly, and teach themselves through imitation and play, through being immersed in their environment, and through interaction with adults and older children. The family-like setting of Music Together classes creates an ideal learning environment. And it’s all based on research in early childhood and music development.

Learn about the research behind Music Together at the Music Together Worldwide website.

Your Role Is Essential

You are your child’s most important music teacher right now! Young children learn through play and experimentation and by watching and listening to the grownups they love. Setting an example as an enthusiastic participator in music activities is the best thing any parent or caregiver can do to help set a child on the road to a lifelong love of music. Parents don't need to have music skills—they just need a desire to play and have fun with their children! Our teachers are specially trained to create a safe atmosphere so you can happily join in, experiment, or even get silly—and feel closer to your child while doing so.

Music Learning Supports All Learning®

Wiggling, singing, and laughing with your child is so much fun, it's easy to forget how much learning is taking place! Our research-based curriculum not only develops music skills, it nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence while also supporting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Because these benefits build over time, children enjoy the fullest growth in each of these areas when they participate as consistently as possible up through kindergarten.

Music Together at Your Child’s School

We also plan to expan our program in your child's school. Taught by Music Together specialists from Music Together of Fayetteville, in cooperation with classroom teachers, our curriculum can be easily integrated into any early learning setting, including pre-kindergarten programs, Head Start classrooms, childcare centers and in-home care. We will publicize when things are up and running.

Did you know Billie Eilish did Music Together as a Child?

That's right! Billie Eilish did Music Together classes as a child. Her mother also taught Music Together classes! Congrats to her for receiving Grammys for best new artist, record of the year, album of the year, song of the year, and best pop vocal album! Click here to read more about Billie. In an interview, Finneas, Billie's older brother states:

"My mom taught these classes called “Music Together” when we were really young. I was like two or three, and I guess Billie was just basically born (laughter). They were great classes. They were just like singing the same things and clapping your hands and slapping your legs and really rhythmic stuff. I think it’s why I have rhythm. It’s a little bit like kids who learn violin really young and they have perfect pitch. If you learn rhythm really young, you have it. Your body knows it. And I think if you try to pick it up later in life, you don’t have it. It’s like language, like how babies can easily learn languages. It felt like Billie and I learned music that way. We learned it before anything else."
