Meet the Instruments

Age 6-9

Based on our very popular summer program, Meet the Instruments introduces your child to a different instrument focus on each of three Saturdays. This introduction to the colorful world of musical instruments is a fun, engaging way to learn about instruments such as cello, clarinet, flute, guitar, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet and violin.

Students will interact with BMS faculty experts to first learn something new about the history and repertoire of each instrument before getting an up-close look, hearing it played live, and playing the instruments. Students emerge excited to begin lessons themselves on one (or more) instruments!

Students will be in groups of no more than 6.

January 7th: GUITAR with Mitch Selib and PIANO with JungSun Yoon
January 14th
: VIOLIN with Karine Nowick and WINDS with Karen Robbins
January 21st:

Classes For Young Children

Our Classes For Young Children 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.

Our staff and faculty are skilled in early childhood music development and are happy to discuss any of these programs with you. Contact us at
