About

All early childhood 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.

Birth - 3

In Music Play classes, students are exposed to a playful and rich musical environment that nurtures their music development needs.

3 - 4

In Musical Adventures, students actively participate in activities that provide a strong musical foundation.
