Music & Me, LLC to exhibit their work at The Salvador Dali Museum as part of The 12 Days of Dali event sponsored by the Zodiac Membership Committee
St. Petersburg, FL. – Salvador Dali Museum – On December 3, 2015, The Zodiac Membership Committee exhibits Music & Me, LLC as one of the 12 artists in their event “The 12 Days of Dali” from 6-8:30pm at the Salvador Dali Museum, One Dali BLVD, Saint Petersburg Florida. Tickets are $15 and available at the Dali Museum & their website http://thedali.org/events/category/member-events. This is a Dali membership event.
Music & Me, LLC is a provider of the Music Together curriculum, an early childhood music program based in over 25 years of research that helps children develop not only tonal and rhythmic accuracy but aides in language, cognitive, motor and social development through the medium of musical play. Using a combination of song, movement and instrument play, teachers engage both care-givers and children in playful activities that target all these important areas of development. By using adult-modeled behavior and honoring each child’s individual learning style, children find validation for and build confidence in their abilities and efforts. Through regular exposure and through the active participation of the primary care givers, eventually all children can learn to sing in tune and keep a beat; skills that will prove important throughout a person’s life. Music is the language universally spoken and typically plays a part in each human being’s daily life, further enriched when able to participate with confidence.
The Zodiac Membership Committee supports the mission of The Dali Museum by building meaningful relationships with Members, fostering new interest in the membership program, and helping to strengthen ties between The Dali Museum, its members, and the arts community. This event is to highlight local artists and introduce them to a new base of potential collectors.

About The Zodiacs
The original Zodiac Group was created in France in 1932 and consisted of 12 patrons who each sponsored Salvador Dali for one month of the year. In exchange, patrons received a work Dali produced during that same month. In the spirit of these forward-thinking patrons, the Zodiac Membership Committee was formed at The Dali Museum in 1996.
