"My girls LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this music class. You won't want to miss it! For those of you w/ several kids, it's great for you too! They will all be engaged so you won't need to worry about keeping everyone contained." - Bethany F. (Mom of Molly and Ellie)
"I am totally sold on Music Together® (I teach Early Childhood classes, including music, at a local community college). I can't think of a better gift for a child. I am in the process of registering my son-in-law and grandson. Thanks for the important role you and your many teachers play!"
"Wanted to let you know that Debbie was wonderful for my 5 yr old's party! The kids had a great time and loved all the instruments and songs. Debbie was a big hit! Thank you again!!!!!" (Amy M.)
About Inter-Generational Class at Weinberg: Mom writes,
"Hi, Bettina. Yesterday was a lovely class that, I think, brightened some of the elderly audience members day's. Thank you for offering us the chance to come out, be with friends, have fun and perform a mitzvah, all in one morning!
Enclosed are some photos...(friends' children) were talking about their experience the rest of the day, as was (my daughter)! (My son), well, he will be able to chew my ear off on a great music class one day VERY soon...
Music Together by Groovy Baby is the best class...The teacher Bettina is so wonderful. My daughter has never been so excited for a class before...She can't wait for every class, sings the songs at home and always wants to play with music instruments!...I highly suggest this class.... It is also a great way to meet other parents! - Beth G.
"Coming to class is fun. As soon as we enter the building my daughter becomes VERY excited. It's such a pleasure to watch her develop musically and I've also recognized my own hidden musical talents surfacing! We both eagerly await the next session!"
Bettina, All of the moms at the party were very impressed with you -- your activities, your way with the children, and your voice." Anne H. (Grandma that comes weekly with grandaughter and hosted birthday party)
"My kids displayed more enjoyment during class at Music Together sessions than at any of the other programs for children that age."
"I have been going to Music Together with my twins since they were 6 months old. They are now 2 1/2 (7 sessions) We have had 5 different teachers. Each teacher brought unique talents to the classes. Our children got exposed to different instruments, voices, and styles. These differences allowed my children to experience music through different lenses. As a result they have flourished musically - singing and dancing and inventing instruments throughout the day. I want to encourage all Music Together families to try a new teacher!"
Wonderful! Miss Clara is a gem of a teacher. We always enjoy her.

--David Levitan has a book called, This is Your Brain On Music
From the review: "He points out that
"no known human culture now or anytime in the recorded past lacked music,"
which indicates that it is somehow evolutionary necessary.
"Music listening, performance, and composition engage nearly every area of the brain that we have so far identified, and involve nearly every neural subsystem."
