What is Music Together Generations?

  • families with children aged 0-5

  • seniors in care homes

What are the benefits of this program?
  • Children develop social skills and emotional processing while building a strong musical foundation.

  • Parents develop tools to support their child's musical growth and also get to watch them develop relationships with seniors, seniors are engaged cognitively and physically as well as emotionally through watching the children grow.

  • Seniors also actively contribute to the children's musical explorations which increases feelings of self worth and esteem. All ages benefit from making music in community.
