SSC’s Music Together® program encourages families to be musical. It serves babies, toddlers and preschool children, between the ages of zero to four, accompanied by a caregiver. Children and adults discover the transformative power of musical play through song, dance and instruments. The joyful Music Together environment not only provides the gift of music, but also creates connections that can last a lifetime.
“We are very excited to be able to offer this program in Norwell,” said SSC’s Music Together Director Jana Kahn. “For several years we have been wanting to provide quality music programming for families with young children in Norwell and other neighboring towns, where travel to our already existing locations in Hingham, Cohasset and Duxbury may feel too far to travel with little ones.”
Excited about the new location, Music Together parent Tracy Durso says, “I’ve taken Music Together classes with all three of my children over the last eight years, and every week I still look forward to going to these classes with my youngest. The time we spend singing, dancing, playing and bonding has been such a special part of her childhood for both of us. What we’ve learned in class carries over into our daily lives as we still use the diverse music and songs for playtime, nap time, car rides and more.”
SSC’s Norwell site for Music Together is located in the United Methodist Church at 11 Church Street. The Conservatory chose this space because, in addition to being sunny and spacious, and it also has a beautiful playground on the grounds for families to enjoy before or after class. Classes will be offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays initially, at 9:30 am and 10:30 am.
