Our Early Childhood programs seek to develop creativity and excitement for the performing arts in children ranging in age from about 3 to 8 years of age.  Our instructors approach education as an adventure: incorporating songs, movement, and imaginative play into their classes.  We strive to make your child’s first musical experience a fun and enriching foundation for their creative future.

Private Instruction:  

Our nurturing and highly qualified faculty will work one-on-one with your child, encouraging the exploration of musical learning and imagination in a way that is supportive and fun. 

Private Instruction is offered to children ages 5 and up. 

 

Suzuki Violin:  

Suzuki Violin is a style of music education, which is based on the premise that musical ability is inherent in all children.  Suzuki Violin seeks to develop that innate ability through encouragement and positive support from both teacher and parents. 

Classes include both individual instruction and group lessons and are offered to ages 3 and up.

 

Dalcroze Eurythmics:

The Dalcroze approach to music education teaches an understanding of music's  fundamental concepts, expressive meanings, and deep connections to other arts and human activities through rhythmic movement, aural training, and physical, vocal, and instrumental improvisation. Parents are encouraged to attend the class.

 

Musical Theatre:

This class is designed for children who want to begin to develop their singing and acting skills, projecting techniques, and memorization capabilities.  Children will be taught with understanding and patience as they begin to develop these abilities.

 

Children's Choir:

Our Boys and Girls Choirs are great for students who want to begin using their voice as an instrument.  Your child will sing an appropriate and varied repertoire while being introduced proper vocal technique and developing musical skills.

Children’s Choir is comprised of students grades 2 to 6.
