Gabriele Tranchina started Music Together® in 1997 in Morningside Heights with 7 families. In 2001, she expanded and founded Sol La Ti Music, Inc. Today she overlooks 4 locations and is working on building a 4th in Central Harlem.
In 2012 Ms. Tranchina was asked to offer a German early childhood music and movement program and developed “Musikalische Mäuse,” and shortly thereafter presented “Music Together® Preschool” to Budding Blossoms Daycare. 2014 saw Sol La Ti Music provide a charter school with an after school music program which later became available to all schools. Macaroni Kids presented Sol La Ti with the prestigious “Golden Daisy Award” for best enrichment program in Morningside Heights and Harlem.
For 20 years, through good times and hard, Sol La Ti Music has continuously provided a safe haven for families to enjoy music with their children. See why Sol La Ti’s classes are so popular by watching Gabriele and her staff teach here.

- A wonderful curriculum has been developed for Preschools which goes much deeper and far beyond the average music class children receive in their Preschools.
- Children of mixed ages participate at their own level by singing, moving, chanting, listening, and exploring musical instruments.
- This is for experienced 3- to 5-year-old children who have had a lot of Music Together® and are ready for something a little different but still need an accompanying adult in class.
“My children (ages 3 1/2 and 2) have literally been going for their entire lives to Sol La Ti’s Music Together (in Morningside Heights and Harlem). Not only do they love it completely when they’re there and miss it when they’re not there, they have learned more from it than I can possibly describe here. They sang early, they spoke early, they danced early
“Walter has benefited so much from music class. He loves to recite the ‘Tiny Tim’ song, and is still obsessed with ‘Betty Martin Tip Toe.’ We put it on repeat for a dance party EVERY morning per Walter’s request. Thank you for bringing music and happiness to Walter and into our home!” Cheers Laura Flahive Wu
