In the Fall of 1997 I started my first Music Together class with 7 families. I am now entering my 25th year having 2 wonderful teachers by my side. Over 10,000 children have been enrolled in our program!

Rain Song Did you know? ￼Rhymes made up of words that begin with the same letter and have the same repeating initial sound—“tongue-twisters” like “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers”—are not only fun for children to say but are also great for language development.

Many Music Together songs, including “Two Little Blackbirds,” give children the opportunity for “fingerplay”—they make small movements with their fingers and hands as they play.
