Eastside Westside Music Together

Kidz Tips
  • Playful and interactive environment
  • Open to non-Spanish speakers!

Canta y Baila Conmigo creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language-learning is naturally and organically integrated into the musical experience. CyBC appeals to a wide variety of families, from native and heritage Spanish speakers to brand new Spanish-learners. It is different from other early childhood language offerings in that, rather than "teaching Spanish vocabulary through songs," CyBC teaches the "Spanish language through music."

 Each semester features a collection of carefully selected folk classics, familiar children's songs, and new adaptations of traditional songs and rhymes. The repertoire authentically represents a wide variety of Spanish-speaking regions and cultures, including Andean, Mexican, Afro-Hispano, Caribbean, Castilian, Argentine, and more. Along with the take-home CD, families receive a songbook containing Spanish lyrics, sheet music, cultural notes, and an English Language Supplement for those who are learning Spanish.

    Music Together (Mixed Ages)

    Music Together has been an incredible experience for my daughter and my family. We first heard of the class from the amazing singalongs in the park that were open to all. Suddenly the songs became familiar as the teachers' faces were bright and cheerful and the music was so catchy. We knew we had to enroll. Once we were signed up, we were given the CD of songs that the semester would cover. We listened religiously and even my husband began strumming the tunes when we weren't around. The methodology, the staff, and the music blew us away. Music Together's teachers are extremely open, loving, and warm.My daughter was in love!. We looked forward to it each week, and had a ball when we were there. I would highly recommend the class to anyone. It is one of NYC's gems, and I am certain you will not be disappointed.

    Music Together® began in 1987 as an educational project of the Center for Music and Young Children of Princeton, NJ. The program, which is designed for children birth (yes, birth!) to five years, is based on the premise that all children are musical and have the same innate ability to learn music as language. At Music Together we believe that music ability is as much a basic life skill as walking and talking and that all children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with pleasure and confidence in the music of their culture. We nurture the child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement as we sing, dance, chant, and play instruments in an informal setting that will enrich their musical environment and guide them towards a lifetime of music making enjoyment.Music Together came to the eastside of Manhattan in 1992, and to the westside shortly thereafter, in the spring of 1993.  Over the years, we have grown primarily through word of mouth and since inception have brought music into the lives of tens of thousands of families on the upper west and upper east sides. We continue to thrive and expand our program today with parent/child, preschool, and outreach classes on the upper east and west sides, ever expanding our community of music-makers while maintaining our heart and commitment to our mission.  The joy of bringing music into the lives of young children carries us forward in each of our classes and the beauty of seeing a parent or caregiver rediscover and nurture their own innate musicality is a precious reward all its own. Once recognized solely in the tri-state area as a research-based, grassroots music program for young children and their parents and caregivers, Music Together is now well-known throughout America and has centers across the globe in 40 countries.
