Adelaide Family Music Classes for Young Children and the Adults who Love Them
At Music Alley, we are proud to be Adelaide’s only accredited provider of the internationally recognised Music Together® program – family music classes for children – babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
Learning music is like learning a language, it begins at birth. Our Music Together® program nurtures your child’s musical potential in the important early years, enabling their immediate and future development in the language of music and more.
Through music, movement, make-believe and magic, you will see them develop and grow in amazing ways.
What does a Music Together class look like?
You and your child will…
- fly a rocket-ship to the moon, play in a marching band, sing about a tailor and a mouse, dance around the kitchen and meet a donkey with a funny name.
- play and sing in beautiful harmony with other families and experience the feeling of community that only music can bring.
Know that by participating in our music classes you are fostering your child’s musical development in the most natural and appropriate way – in a caring community with YOU as their most important role-model.

The Power of Music
Dancing, singing, and laughing with your child is so much fun – it’s easy to forget how much learning is happening! That’s because music learning and early childhood go hand in hand and it’s never too young to start.
Classes at Music Alley develop core music skills, such as singing in tune and moving with accurate rhythm. The programme also nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence and supports social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development, using research-based methods.
Beyond Learning: Bonding
We know from research that musical development not only supports all learning, it opens the way to greater family intimacy and a welcoming community. Parents, caregivers, teachers, children – everyone benefits from our Music Together classes. We create a warm, inviting environment where you and your child can explore music through shared experiences of discovery, bringing you closer together, in class, at home, and beyond.
During their musical journey, young children learn by watching and listening to the grownups they love and look up to, as much as they do through their own play and experimentation. In fact, this adult modelling is essential to all children’s growth into confident music-makers. But don’t worry, you already have the only skill you’ll need – the desire to play and have fun with your child! Just being there as a role model and sharing the experience makes a powerful difference.
At Music Alley we support you to support your child’s learning in a dynamic and relaxed way. Our classes offer a safe atmosphere where you can happily join in, experiment, and get silly – all while strengthening the bond with your child.
