Fall Registration News

Join us for the Flute Song Collection in September! This semester, you'll learn twenty-five new songs and many new activities that your family will enjoy trying both in class and at home. Your children will love taking off like a "Rocketship," running like a "Sandpiper'" wiggling with you to "Shake Those Simmons Down" and drumming to the Native American folksong "The Earth Is Our Mother." In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes materials for you to use at home, access to Music together's Family Music Zone which is full of resources and music-making ideas, and the Music Together app--"Hello, Everybody"! 

We are also excited to announce that JJMT is helping to pilot a new program called Rhythm Kids!TM This new class offering is a wonderful music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8, parent participation is optional). Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they learn multicultural drumming patterns; develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments; explore movement and dance while singing songs; and have fun with a host of rhythm activities!

Welcome to Joyful Jumping Music Together for Carlsbad and Vista!

Now Open for Fall 2016 Registration

"Flute" Song Collection 

We are excited to offer three different experiences for you in our class selections! All classes provide opportunities for children to engage in music-learning through a rich variety of tonal and rhythmic activities, but differ in terms of the setting or age group:

Mixed Age Classes

Ten weekly, 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic chants, movement, and instrument play. Infants up to age five attend classes together with a parent or caregiver. All our activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences. The curriculum is specifically designed for young children and encourages lots of parent/caregiver participation, regardless of musical ability. A CD and a beautifully illustrated songbook are included with registration. Plus, you can now download the Music Together® App, and also have access to "Family Music Zone" on the MTLLC website, where you will be able to download the music, as well as access other content from the "Flute" collection!

New Rhythm Kids K–2 Program! Come be a part of the exciting Rhythm KidsTM pilot class in Carlsbad!

Rhythm Kids K–2 is an exciting music, movement, and drumming class for children in Kindergarten through second grade (ages 5 through 8, parent participation is optional). Children integrate and assimilate rhythm into their lives, as they learn multicultural drumming patterns; develop new repertoire on various percussion instruments; explore movement and dance while singing songs; and have fun with a host of rhythm activities. RhythmKids follows through on the Music Together® vision to help children complete the pathway of early childhood music development from birth through age 8. 

Generations Classes

Curriculum and activities are the same as in mixed-age classes, but classes are held in a senior residential facility. "Grandmas" and Grandpas" join our music circle and participate with all the families in making musical connections, and share in the joy of accepting and including many generations. Generations classes are truly special, and provide people of all ages with the opportunity to build community through music.

 Why Music Together?

The Music Together program was first implemented in 1987 by the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, New Jersey, with a focus on understanding how children develop musically. The program is based on the center's research findings, which show the following:

I. All children are musical.

II. All children can achieve basic music competence (defined as the ability to sing in tune with accurate rhythm).

III. The participation and modeling of parents and other primary caregivers, regardless of their musical ability, is essential to a child's musical growth.

IV. Young children’s musical growth occurs best in a playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate setting, free of direct instruction and performance pressure, where learning activities are accessible, interesting, and fun for both children and adults.

Developed by Kenneth K. Guilmartin and coauthor Lili Levinowitz, PhD, the songs in each Music Together collection are carefully selected and arranged to facilitate children's breadth and quality of experience. 

Today, Music Together offers classes around the world-- we invite you to join our community as part of Joyful Jumping Music Together, and discover the joy of making music together!
