Hands-on | Kids Out and About Nashville

Tenn Little Birds

We are currently offering 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 East Nashville. 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, you’re guaranteed to learn new songs and music activities to inspire you to bring music into your family’s everyday life.
