Still looking for things to do with your little ones this summer? Music Together of the Western Piedmont has opened registrations for in-person summer classes starting June 7th, 2021 at our locations in Taylorsville and Newton.
Founded by Kenneth K. Guilmartin in 1987, Music Together has been a pioneer of research-based early childhood music education. Music Together classes can be found in more than 2,500 communities in over 40 countries. Music Together of the Western Piedmont will provide early childhood music education through mixed-age family classes.
Ms. Sharon Owenby, Center Director of Music Together of the Western Piedmont, is a seasoned mom, a classically trained cellist, and has been teaching music in the Greater Charlotte area since 2007. Ms. Owenby was inspired by the recent births of her two youngest children to the needs of young families during a pandemic and desires to bring the healing gift of music to households of Iredell, Alexander, and surrounding areas.
Music Together is an internationally recognized, developmentally appropriate early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age seven. The Music Together curriculum, coauthored by Guilmartin and Dr. Lili Levinowitz (Director of Research), is based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, move with accurate rhythm, and participate with confidence in the music of their culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. The company is passionately committed to bringing children and their caregivers closer through shared music-making and helping people discover the joy—and educational value—of early music experiences.
