Music Together®


 The Music Together® curriculum is a ten-week series that provides a learning environment based on the understanding that children learn through play and that early experiences and social interactions play an important integral role in a child’s development.

Parents and children participate in music, active modeling and movement activities. The class also promotes parenting skills and builds knowledge of children’s developmental needs.

Presented by Texas Christian University (TCU), partially funded by The Fort Worth Public Library Foundation and designed for infants and children through 4 years of age and at least one parent/caregiver per child.

Please note: Families are limited to participation in one subsidized Music Together® series through the Fort Worth Public Library. After that, families will be referred to a paid-tuition class through TCU. Once a class is full, families can be waitlisted for the program in case of cancellations.
