Claudia Tulip, Director





  Music Together is a music and movement program for young children and the adults who love them! In Mixed Ages Classes (birth to 5 years), children experience the various stages of primary music development through singing, movement and instrument play. Strong child-parent focus enables each individual child's stage of development to flower within the larger community. Specialty classes, Babies (birth to 9 months with adult) and Big Kids (ages 5 to 7 years), are each designed to nurture, guide and inspire music development for each of those respective ages and stages. Music Together was founded by Ken Guilmartin in 1987 and is taught worldwide. Having served thousands of Arizona families since 1999,  Music Together Center Director, Claudia Tulip, opened her first center, Music Together of Scottsdale in 1999 and since 2010 has expanded to include music programs for all ages, Under One Common Sky. To register for Music Together fall classes, visit www.OneCommonSky.com or call 480-688-9597.
