MUSIC

Making the world a better place by making it more musical, one child and one family at a time.

Our beloved family music classes - for little ones aged 0-5 and their grown-ups - lay a musical foundation to last your child’s whole life long. Children love making music with the grownups who love them (regardless of your musical ability!). Beyond learning how to sing in tune and how to keep a beat, active music-making creates unique connections in the brain that support your child’s language, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development too.

Discover Music Making at MAX.

Music Together by MAX

Music Together is a research-based, early-childhood music education program on a mission to make the world a better place by making it more musical. With classes offered at more than 3,000 locations in 40 countries, Music Together is a staple for families worldwide. At MAX, we are proud to be the exclusive provider of this program in Newfoundland and Labrador.

#maxfam Stories

Thank you for organizing the at-home recital. I’ve really seen growth in my daughter and I attribute much of that to her dance classes.

Dance Parent

We had our daughter’s parent-teacher interview yesterday, who advised she is beyond her peers in creative story telling/writing. I strongly feel it’s because of the work you are doing with the kids, allowing them to dig deeper into story/ character development in a way that’s interesting … they don’t even know they are learning

Theatre program parent

There are many things I love about the Music Together program, but the one thing I love the best is that I can take my two children (ages 2 and 4) to the SAME class! And they both love it. I highly recommend this class.

Music Together Parent

Our family loves Music Together. We found it helped our son’s speech develop. Not only is he a little chatterbox, we catch him singing all the time. Our one-year-old daughter is easily soothed when she hears the Music Together songs and loves to dance along. We highly recommend Music Together to all our friends and family and look forward to … a fun and interactive class every week.

Music Together Parent

Music Together is like a kitchen party for kids!

Music Together Parent

Thanks so much for everything, our daughter really enjoyed her time dancing and loved getting to meet new girls. We really appreciate all that you’ve done to accommodate the COVID restrictions, it was enjoyable no matter what the limitations were!

Dance Parent

We play “music class” at home at least once a day. The boys are LOVING the song collection! We dance to it every night!

Music Together Parent

Wednesday nights continue to be our child’s favorite night of the week. Every morning they wake up asking if it’s theatre day.
