Research demonstrated that Bridgeport parents (n=46) who participated in Music Together classes showed more favorable change, at a statistically significant level (t(67)=-2.961), p<.01), in their perceived success in preparing their children to learn (measure based on Sheldon & Epstein, 2007).
The research-based program, not only supports music learning, but also promotes overall healthy brain development in infants and young children.
Weekly classes are carefully developed to build motor, social/emotional, language, (pre)/reading and cognitive skills.
All parents receive CDs and songbooks to continue positive interactions at home and are engaged through parent events during the year.
Programming is available for Infants- Grade 3, providing an enhanced learning environment in an intentional continuum.

Further, previous research using the Bridge Together model of family services and engaging programming (previously Total Learning) showed the potential to impact DRA scores in Kindergarten students and multiple domains of development in pre-school children (all statistically significant at the p<.05 level).

Changes in parent’s perception of their ability to help their child learn
Infant/toddler neurological development is stimulated through ‘purposeful touch’ during music and rhythmic interactions.
The parent-infant attachment relationship has been connected to gene expression and even to the physical development of an infant’s right brain, which regulates stress, emotion, and ability to self-regulate.
