Brookline Music School is proud to offer a sequential, musically rich, developmentally appropriate and fun early childhood music program that provides students a strong foundation of musical skills and helps each student reach their full musical potential. Classes are designed for active participation of adult and child.  Come ready to sing, dance and play!

Using the rich folk tradition of songs, finger-plays, and dances, we sing, dance, play instruments and move in small classes that allow for both personal attention and social interaction with repetition, variation, and weekly surprises.  Classes are designed for active participation of adult and child. 

Classes can be created where there is a demand in early childhood music and movement, music classes for special needs, music therapy, and more!

Summer 2016 Offerings include:

First Steps: Mixed ages (birth-3 years)

In First Steps classes, students are exposed to a playful and rich musical environment that nurtures their music development needs with singing, chanting, moving, creating and listening. Through play and exposure, even the youngest student will show awareness of musical sounds as he/she absorbs and responds through babble and movement. Toddlers will begin to purposefully respond to and imitate musical sounds, becoming more precise with increased focus and interaction. Experienced teachers musically interact with students as they guide each of them through the music learning stages. Great opportunity for siblings to participate in the same class!

Songs of Summer (3-5 years)

Prepare for a musical camping trip with Brookline Music School! In Songs of Summer, students will engage in musical play, learn songs, chants and dances, and play percussive instruments to both new and favorite summertime songs. These classes are designed for active participation of both adult and child. Please come ready to sing, move, and have fun!

Instrument Discovery (5-6 years)

In Instrument Discovery, students develop their understanding of music through song, movement, chants, improvisation and instruments. Each week, students will experience playing a new instrument such as the piano, violin, ukulele, and recorder. This class is a great preview for our full year Instrument Discovery class, where the students spend more time on each instrument, learning the basics and playing together in ensembles.
