Mounting research shows that early engagement in active music making is directly linked with a child’s capacity to learn and grow. Early music training enhances analytical thinking, problem solving, communication, interpersonal skills, discipline, and it’s fun! Simply, music is food for your child’s growing brain.
At Little School of Music children have fun learning and making music together! Little School of Music teaches the beginning fundamentals of musicianship using age-appropriate approaches and activities including: steady beat, pitch matching, movement, piano, guitar, recorder, singing, reading and writing music, and more!
Classes meet in small groups once a week for 45 or 60 minutes. The class environment is very encouraging and supportive of parents (or caregiver) and their children learning about music together. The class activities are specifically designed for the size, ability, and attention span of young children. Children will also experience a balance between the enjoyment of actively making music and the discipline necessary for playing musical instruments properly. We consider this variety and balance essential to the development of a young child.
Parents (or caregiver) and children have fun learning along with their music friends through creative games, imaginative stories and exciting activities. All class activities are fun, short, and allow children to learn different aspects of music in small steps.
Performing music is an exciting and enriching experience. 5-10 year old students have the opportunity to participate in performances upon completion of each class session. These performances are events at which students share their passion for making music with their family and friends.
Our caring teachers are uniquely qualified and dedicated to providing a fun, positive, imaginative atmosphere to the classroom. Little School of Music teachers are college graduates who are passionate about spreading the joy of making music to children and their families.
