About Music Together classes in Zurich
MUSIC TOGETHER ZURICH was the very first center outside the US. It was founded by Cezanne Winter in 1999, is on a mission to enrich the lives of children and their families through the joy of music. In a happy and playful environment, children get to explore the wonders of music making with their family, friends and caregivers.
Families start off with our fun-filled core program, Music Together®, the internationally renowned music program for children new born to 5 yrs. This award winning program is a stand out among its peers because of its cutting edge research and specialized teacher training.
WHAT MAKES MUSIC TOGETHER® GREAT?
Musical Diversity – each Music Together Collection is created in a way that explores diverse modalities and complex rhythms through music from all over the world.
Foundation for Formal Instruction – In the same way we learn to speak before we read, children must feel melody and rhythm comfortably before they can take further steps in formal musical education. Music Together provides a strong foundation for later musical development.
Caregiver Involvement – Sometimes, engaging your children can be exhausting. Music Together offers a different way to play with your child — with rhythm and song!
Social interaction – sharing a regular activity is important for children and for parents. Making music as a group is something we don’t often allow ourselves to do. Participating in a group builds community.
It’s Easy – Caregivers don't need to have any musical knowledge to enjoy the class. Musicians and those who can't carry a tune both enjoy the class and love the music.
The program is taught in English, just like it is in the U.S. Children benefit from the musical experience even if English is not the language they hear at home.
Tuition for the 10 week course is 300 francs and include a CD, a songbook, webpage access and a video of the latest research into music acquisition in children.
