The Music Together Princeton Lab School will open its newest location for Music Together classes in Hillsborough on Sept. 17, announced Music Together Princeton Lab School director Sarah Orfe.
The 12-week fall semester will be held at The Dance Connection, at 1 Jill Court, Building 16. The new Hillsborough location is the seventh location for Music Together Princeton Lab School, which offers classes in Princeton, Hopewell, West Windsor, East Brunswick and Hamilton.
Families are invited to try free demo classes at the new location on Sept. 10, 11 and 12. For details and reservations families can call 609-924-7801 or visit the Music Together Princeton website.
“I am so proud to now offer classes in Hillsborough," Orfe said. "Music Together’s success in our other locations has been phenomenal, and we wanted to expand to offer families our wonderful program in other communities. We know that we’ve had many families from Hillsborough driving down to Princeton for classes and are excited that they’ll now be able to attend the classes they love right in their back yard.
“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," she added. "Music Together brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life. Families get so much out of these classes.”
Founded in Princeton and celebrating its 25th anniversary, Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement program for children birth through age seven. The Music Together curriculum was coauthored in 1987 by Kenneth K. Guilmartin (Founder/Director) and Rowan University Professor of Music Education Dr. Lili M. Levinowitz (Director of Research) and offers programs for families; schools; at-risk populations; and children with special needs, in over 2,000 communities in 40 countries. The company is passionately committed to bringing children and their caregivers closer through shared music-making and helping people discover the joy—and educational value—of early music experiences.
