PreSchoolers - MUSICAL FRIENDS (3-4 Year olds)


This is the perfect music class for young beginners, whether you are new to music instruction or have previously participated in music and movement classes for infants and toddlers.

The majority of each class includes high-energy group activities that instill important rhythmic, theory and ear-training concepts. Some classes will end with hands-on time at the pianos, drum kits, guitars, and/or a live musical demonstration of a band or orchestra instrument. After being in this setting, most children show a clear preference for their favorite instrument and are well prepared to begin instrumental music study by age 4 or 5. This class begins to focus on general classroom skills, and therefore we encourage parents to observe quietly from the side. Please jump in and assist if your child needs help focusing.

Musical Friends Class Schedule



Musical Explorers (5-6 Year olds)


The goal of this class is to expose them to a variety of instruments to help students decide which one to pursue. Musical Explorers will spend several weeks learning about and playing instruments representing each of the instrument families. Your child will enjoy live performance demonstrations such as violin, cello, trumpet, tuba, and oboe while learning to play songs on the piano, drums, guitar and/or ukulele, recorder and more. Singing, movement, and basic patterning (rhythm and beat) are also part of every class.

We have several Early Childhood experts on staff and have extensive experience preparing young children to learn their instrument of choice. We designed this class to include the most successful strategies and curriculum for this age group after many years of observation. We are confident that it is the very best introduction to instrumental music study available!
