Active Music Making; Never Passive

When you’re a parent, you want to give your young child the very best. That means you want to expose them to every possible opportunity to learn and grow. At Pakachoag, this starts with Music Together, creating a bond through music. Since 1983, Pakachoag has introduced thousands of children and parents to the joys of music-making and the powerful benefits of having music in their lives through Music Together.mt_banners_photo_160x160-blue

Today, it’s common for us to only listen to music rather than create it ourselves. But actively making music is so important for children’s music and overall development. That’s why Pakachoag’s MT program has never been more essential.

We know, through long-standing research, that children learn best through active exploration as well as live, meaningful interaction with the grownups they love. That’s why Music Together lets us take out the earbuds and pick up the instrument we were all given at birth—ourselves!

Additionally, Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical.
That’s why our classes are appropriate for every child, aged birth through 5.  With MT Rhythm Kids, we extend the learning for children ages 5 to 8 years.

MT Rhythm Kids follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age eight.


Music Together®  — Bringing Harmony Home®

Music is a universal language. It transcends boundaries and has the power to bond people the world around. It reaches beyond culture and language to touch the depths of our souls, express our common emotions, and inspire us all.

Music Together blue logoNow serving 2,500 communities in over 40 countries, Music Together’s internationally recognized early childhood music programs support this natural bonding experience. We connect families and communities across the globe as they express and explore the basic human instinct for making music.
Are you ready to make some music together?

Why Music Together® at Pakachoag?

As a music school with more than 30 years of experience in teaching music to students of all ages, Pakachoag is in a unique position to offer this program as an extension of our music instruction programs. That long-standing experience in music educations means that our Music Together instructors are carefully selected to ensure that they will bring your child (or grandchild, if you are a grandparent) the most the MT program has to offer.

At Pakachoag, we believe in Music for Life, your entire life, so it’s never too early to start.

Do Infants Really Benefit?

Yes! Check out this quick video.

Studies have suggested that infants have remarkably sophisticated music responses beginning at birth; they are in fact “wired for sound.” This means babies recognize songs, move their arms and legs in response to music, or even coo in the tonality of a song—and as their bodies and nervous systems mature, they will show progressively more complex musical responses.

Consequently, we know that infants actively absorb what they are seeing, hearing, and feeling.  Through Music Together, we’ll help you to recognize and support your child’s or grandchild’s musical responses.

For all of these reasons, it is never too early for a child to begin MT classes, and it can be particularly delightful to share in a child’s music development from infancy.  As a Music Together parent or grandparent you will grow to treasure the musical bond you share with your growing child or grandchild.
