Music is best learned if informal music guidance is begun as early in life as possible. In Music Play classes, students are exposed to a playful and rich musical environment that nurtures their music development needs with singing, chanting, moving, creating, and listening. Experienced teachers musically interact with each student, guiding them through the music learning stages with individualized instruction and engaging group activities. Props such as scarves, balls, egg shakers, and hoops are utilized to help children engage with music and movement. These classes are designed for active participation of both adult and child. Please come ready to sing, move, and have fun!

Please refer to the FAQ’s page for more information on the Early Childhood Music Program. If you have any questions, contact Krista Jadro, Director of Early Childhood Education, at kjadro@bmsmusic.org.

*All Early Childhood Music classes are based on Music Learning Theory and research on how children learn music. Students are guided through the stages of music learning (acculturation, imitation, and assimilation) to provide understanding for a lifelong enjoyment of music and to prepare for formal instruction.
