“I started Music Together of San Francisco in 2001 when my son was just 6 months old and this Fall he began filling out college applications for music conservatories around the country! We wanted to create a solid beginning for Bay Area children and their families and I know we’ve done just that judging from our continued popularity. Filling this need with great teachers and curriculum and building community with arts education is what we are about at MTSF. It does my heart good to see the program continue to thrive and watch the little ones turn into musical human beings.” - MTSF Founder & Executive Director Paul Godwin
Music Together® is an internationally recognized, early childhood music program for children and the adults who love them. First offered in 1987, it pioneered the concept of an early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes adult involvement. Our mission is to provide the highest quality, research-based early childhood music education program to the entire family. Our early childhood educators care about co-creating a fun, educational environment. We strive to offer a space where all voices are welcome, emphasizing the joy of music rather than "perfection." Find out how nurturing our music and movement program can be.
We believe that:
- All children are musical, so all children can achieve basic music competence, ie to sing in tune and move with accurate rhythm.
- The participation and modeling of parents and caregivers, regardless of their musical ability, is essential to a child's musical growth.
- This growth is best achieved in a playful, developmentally appropriate, non-performance-oriented learning environment that is musically rich yet immediately accessible to the child's, and the adult's participation.
