We are seeking OUTSTANDING SINGERS, DANCERS, INSTRUMENTALISTS to teach Music Together®, the internationally recognized, research-based early childhood music and movement curriculum for children birth through kindergarten and the adults who love them®.
For hundreds of thousands of families in over 40 countries worldwide, Music Together is about children and their grownups joyfully sharing songs, rhymes, movement, and instrument play, both in music class and in their daily lives. A pioneer in early childhood music and movement education, Music Together offers classes for children in which parents and caregivers actively participate.
This dynamic program originated out of Princeton NJ almost 30 years ago and we are proud to have brought it to Toronto families. Since our start up in 2003, we have grown to be the most loved and respected music program in the city.
