Music Lessons Preschool Napa CaliforniaAbout Music Together®

Music Together® is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, first and second graders, and the adults 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.

About The Classes

The 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. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together® introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.

The Approach

Central to the Music Together® approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music. The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life.

Music Together’s® Commitment

Music Together® is committed to helping families, caregivers, and early childhood professionals rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal music experiences. All our teachers have successfully completed Music Together®’s training program. Music Together® applies the latest research in early childhood music development to the program. A curriculum pioneer since 1987.

The Foundation of Music Together®

Music Together® was founded with the goal of providing the highest quality music and movement experiences to as many young children as possible, involving their parents, primary caregivers and early childhood professionals in the educational process. Music Together® is therefore dedicated to the thorough and professional support of Music Together® licensees and teachers and their work with children and families.

Training

This support includes training, business mentoring, networking services, national and regional promotion, customer referrals, business technology, ongoing research and development, the production of audio, video and print materials, and the distribution of musical instruments and related products.

GARAGE BAND 101

What is Garage Band 101?

Garage Band 101 is an exciting and fun pop/rock/contemporary band program that takes students through the experience of rehearsing and playing in a real band including performing at their own concert.

Each student is placed in a group of their peers and coached every week by one of our experienced instructors – who are themselves performing musicians.

The bands learn a number of cover songs within a theme which changes with each session.  For example, in previous sessions we have covered songs from The Beatles, AC/DC & Led Zeppelin, 1980’s, The Rolling Stones/Pink Floyd/The Who, Rocks Greatest Hits, The New Millennium, Summer Rock, California Rock and many more.

The students and the instructors work together to pick out songs from the current theme that they like.

Why does my student need private lessons to be in Garage Band 101?

The Garage Band 101 program was developed by Peter Sykes, the Director of the school, who noticed that students progressed much faster on their chosen instrument when they also were preparing for rehearsals and a live performance.

The combination of the private instruction and the group experience has a way of accelerating students’ learning and increases their retention of the music they are working on in a fun and creative way.

The private lessons and GB101 work synergistically. In the private lessons students learn the details of their specific part of each song. Then in the band rehearsals the students learn how to play their part within their band, by playing in time, in tune, memorizing the song’s arrangement, dynamics, overall sound and performance skills.

Private 30-minute lessons are $176 per month.

What Instruments do you accept?

We accept all instruments including band and orchestral such as, but not limited to, violin, viola, cello, trombone, tuba, trumpet and saxophone as well as the usual pop and rock band instruments such as bass, drums, guitar, keyboards and vocals.
