Music Play

Age Birth-3


Music is best learned when informal music guidance is begun as early in life as possible. In Music Play classes, students are exposed to playful and rich music that nurtures their music development needs with singing, chanting, moving, creating, and listening.  Experienced teachers musically interact with students. These classes are designed for active participation of both adult and child. Be ready to sing, move, and have fun! 


NEW this winter! We're excited to offer Tuesday morning Music Play in the lower level of Brookline Booksmith, a family-friendly, easily accessible space in Coolidge Corner with a great children’s book nook and a new cafe.  Brookline Booksmith classes Instrument Packets of $20 included in tuition.

Additional information about your visit: Close by free parking or even closer metered, lot or on-street parking options | Due to minimal stroller parking space, we recommend a foldable stroller | Classes take place down the steps from main level | Masks required for safety (age 2+).

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 info@bmsmusic.org
