What Is Music Together?


What Is Music Together®? At Music Together with Tara, 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 joys of family music-making and 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 Mississippi!

                                            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 with Tara, 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 mu sic 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

The Music of Music Together®

Music Together with Tara is proud to teach the Music Together curriculum, which includes an award-winning mix of original songs and traditional tunes from a range of musical styles, including folk, blues, jazz, and world music. The music is pitched just right for children's voices, and the arrangements are fun, sophisticated, and loved by children---and grownups! The combination gives the children of Byram and Hattiesburg a rich music experience, and makes this kids’ music enjoyable for adult listening, too!
