What role does music play in the life of your children? I’m sure that music has been part of your own life as far back as you can remember. For our family, music consists mostly of songs we hear on the radio. We don’t censor the radio stations too much, so the kids end up signing and dancing along to whatever is popular. I don’t mind listening to kids stations but you’ll never find them on in my husbands car.
I remember when my son was little, we would attend a Mommy & Me (or daddy) type music class at a play area near us. It was mostly a “mommy” outing that we would go to with our local playgroup. There were fun little songs that they sang to the kids, gestures and dances that went along to each one, and even some musical instruments for the kids to play with. It’s been almost 9 years since we attended one of those classes and you may still catch me singing one of the songs. I don’t know why we never looked into similar classes for our daughter, but she did get something similar through her preschool.
As a parent, teacher, or caregiver you have the ability to shape the minds of little people through music. Have you heard of Music Together?
About Music Together:
Imagine a job where you get to sing, dance, and play every day! A career in Music Together is both joyful and satisfying. You help children learn music skills in a playful, organic way, setting them on a path toward a lifelong love of music-making. And you help parents and caregivers connect with their children in a new way, while gaining confidence in their own abilities to be musically playful. Our teachers range from those who have substantial backgrounds in music or education to parents who have only recently rediscovered their playfulness and natural musicality. Anyone with an engaging presence and a love of children, who can sing in tune and lead participatory activities with confidence, has the potential to be a successful Music Together teacher.
Music Together® has been introducing the joy of music-making to families since 1987. Over the past two-and-a-half decades, millions of parents, children, caregivers, and teachers have come to love our award-winning music and innovative, research-based curriculum.

As for our family, I will always have those memories from attending classes with my son. I’m sure one day he’ll even introduce some of the songs he learned as a child to his own children. Does your little one enjoy listening to music, dancing along to the beat, or playing the drums on anything they can beat? I’d love to hear how music has shaped your child in the comments below.
