What parents have to say:
We just love your class and it's been wonderful to see how A. has developed his ear and motor skills.
~Mom L in San Ramon
My son M and I are still absolutely loving the Music Together program. It’s so wonderful to see how much he has grown musically in terms of following rhythms and experimenting with the sound of his own voice during class. Thank you for directing such a wonderful program for the Tri-Valley area. Also, thank you to Meredith for her energy and enthusiasm that she brings to class. She is great with the kids and is great at engaging and encouraging everyone!- Mom C in San Ramon
We’ve seen our daughter L. get so much out of your classes for the past 3 years, and we will be forever grateful for our Music Together experience with you!

Mom Pleasanton about her 3 yr old.
Music Together has helped XXX a lot in so many ways.
Aside from XXX being very "musical" - he is our family's leading singer :) - he also came out of his shell!! He is able to talk in class and to teacher Katherine...that is a huge accomplishment!
I wanted to let you know that we were listening to Frere Jaques today in the car and Marin started singing "one....two....one...two" on the macro beat of the song. I was floored! So fun to see her blossom musically! Thanks! K. Pleasanton mom of 3 year old girl (have been in Music Together® for 1.5 years).
This is the most enjoyable activity we do, as well as having the benefit of being amazing for my children's development. At 4 and 3, they are very confident and keen music makers! Teachers have endless energy and enthusiasm, which rubs off on children and parents alike. Warning, though, you won't be able to get the songs out of your head! I wish I could give more than 5 stars. ~ Alamo Mom Jill on our Facebook Page Jan 2015
Her language has always been behind, but with MT, she learned to dance, learned to drum, and I have no doubt that it tapped into some language area in her brain the helped her turn a BIG corner. If you were to see her MRI, you would not believe that she could do what she does in your class, given the physical trespass of surgery.

Thank you to our wonderful Music Together teachers since they were tiny babies. I give them and the Music Together program much credit for Carly and Shawn's love of music. Mom I from Walnut Creek.
Exceptional program for little children!!!! A must for every child!

I have taught in a Montessori preschool and also had my own daycare business for over 20 years, so I consider myself well versed in children and their early childhood education.This program is SO enriching for little ones, I can't believe I found a class of this caliber. I will continue to take my granddaughter for years, I have as much fun as her. Cathy S -Danville
"This is the best day of my whole life" says 6 yr old Dean E. of Pleasanton after his Big Kids class. Dean's mom says: "This was 'music' to my ears. He loves the big kids music class. We really enjoyed the younger classes but this one is different. The melodies, tempos, and even the notes are absorbing on a different level. It's a great class for music-loving 5-7 yr olds to experience many instruments and dance and sing. We listen to the cd in the car a few times every week. Thank you for working so hard to continue the program and offering it to older ages."
Michelle of San Ramon writes: "My daughter just turned 5 and although she can't read yet, she is already creating her own verses to the songs as well as notating it through pictures in her MT notebook. She is composing! My daughter gets to practice turn taking, phrasing, playing professional instruments rhythmically, choreography and singing complex melody's all in a pressure free, non "performance" oriented atmosphere. I love that she is part of the creative process as opposed to the typical "be quiet and do what I say" teaching approach in other classes for this age group. Her confidence and self esteem are flourishing! "
From Yelp 12/28/13 Well, this review is long due. My daughter went to Music Together for eight terms including a couple of the big kids ones too. It was truly an awesome journey immersing our family within a musical experience that has now evolved into many other music related things - both fun and learning. Prior to this program, I have never ever dared to sing, knowing well that I don't have the voice or the skill. After enjoying many sessions of Music Together, I have come to discover a new me - someone who loves singing with his daughter. I sing all the time now in the car, with my daughter joining me in chorus. It used to be the Music Together songs initially and now after my daughter moved on to listening to Children's Folks songs on Pandora, the collection of songs has grown bigger. It's a joy every time when I see how much my daughter enjoys the idea of singing in the car. My voice is still the same, my skills are perhaps a little better, but what's really changed is my ability to enjoy my own singing - and I owe that to Music Together. Thank you :-)
Christina, Walnut Creek about her infant: Dec 2014 "the greatest gift has been watching as grandparents, aunts and uncles learn to use music as they strengthen their bond with her. I never imagined that any program could yield so much"
