Music Together

Hilltop partners with Beach-Mesa Music Together to offer the Music Together Preschool program to interested, enrolled families after normal school hours. Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program which is based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning.

Playing Music
Making Music

The fee-based Music Together class includes an artistically conceived flow of songs, nursery rhymes, instrumental jam sessions, finger plays and movement activities. The combination and types of activities support children's developing competence in tonality and rhythm. In addition, activities evolve from the child's world and include vocal play, animal sounds, rhythm play, language play and a good bit of genuine silly fun. The classroom teachers are encouraged to generate ways to incorporate music throughout each day and children "take the music home" to their parents through the family CDs and songbook. In this way, the entire school community learns the same songs, and a school-wide musical community is created!

Hilltop's music program is provided by Ms. Kindel, a certified Music Together teacher from Beach-Mesa Music Together.
