What do we mean when we say that Music Together® is a “research-based” program?
As part of its ongoing research and development in early childhood music, the national Music Together organization operates a “lab” school in Princeton, New Jersey. Both Music Together and the Music Together Princeton Lab School are committed to helping families, caregivers, and early childhood professionals rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal musical experiences.
Music Together has done ongoing research through the “lab” school as well as programs implemented around the country since 1985. In addition, Music Together looks to areas outside the scope of early childhood music such as brain development, play research, and the areas of cognitive, language, physical, and emotional development among others. All of these sources continually inform Music Together’s creative work on program content, varied applications of the program and teacher training.
