Hi--I'm David Palomo, founder and director of Music Together Summit. In this video you can see the 3 "Why's" that made me decide to be a Music Together teacher and share The Joy of Family Music® with families here in the Akron-Canton-Medina area. When I went to my first teacher training in 2007, 3 things jumped out at me in the demo classes and literally changed my life. Here they are:
- Each child in the class (and in the video) was engaged in the verbal vocal system, each at their own level of development
- Each child was engaged in their motor skills, each at their own level of development
- Most of all, each child was engaged emotionally--not just from the way the music made them feel, but they were also sharing little moments of emotional connection with their parents.
It was so clear: where else can a parent go and have these 3 vital domains of early childhood development engaged in a single activity? And let's not forget that the Music Together program also helps children lay the foundation for being life-long music makers, making music from the inside out.
If you're a working parent looking for ways to make your time with your child the best possible quality, here's a way to have fun with your child, support their vocal and motor development and support your emotional bond with them. All while you help them lay the foundation to be a music maker!
If you're a stay at home parent, you'll find Music Together helping you find new ways to journey through each day with your child--as the mom in the video says, it's a living sound track to carry you through your day from wake up to bed time.
