    Grow your child into a confident music maker!

    This is an in-person program. Registration is required. This workshop is intended for children ages 0-5, and all children must be accompanied by a caregiver.

    Music Together-Central Oregon is an early childhood music and movement program for children ages 0-5 and the grownups who love them! The early childhood music curriculum has decades of research behind it, in both music education and child development. Our music classes help little ones develop their innate musicality and so much more! And because we know that young children learn best from the powerful role models in their lives, music classes show parents and caregivers how to help their children become confident music-makers just by having fun making music themselves.

    About the Instructor: Ms. Stephanie grew up with music as a constant in her life. When she and her spouse started a family of their own, she was excited to share the joy of music with their kids too. Stephanie heard about the Music Together program from a friend and was instantly hooked after the first class! She and her children completed the entire cycle of music collections, and the years of participating in the program have been impactful to the whole family. Watching her own children grow their basic music competence has been a joy filled with constant surprises. Stephanie is thrilled to share the joy and discovery of the Music Together program with more families throughout Central Oregon.
