Children in every culture learn to talk naturally by simply being immersed in their native language. Parents read and talk to their children, thereby modeling verbal communication! But how much do we, as modern Americans, model the language of music and movement? We have found that if you immerse your child in music and provide a singing/dancing model, they will naturally learn to sing and dance. We can help you do this with YOUR family.
Green Mountain Music Together, with its current Director, Alison Mott, was established in 2010 and currently offers classes throughout the year in Shelburne, the Old North End of Burlington and by partnering with the Flynn at the FlynnCenter in downtown Burlington.
Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age 7—and the grown-ups who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it 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.
Have you ever wondered what you can do to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability?
Experience Music Together and find out how important--and how fun--your role can be!
At Green Mountain Music Together, classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement. We'll help you provide your child with the basic musical skills needed to enjoy school and social musical activities, and to study an instrument should he or she choose to do so.
