Fall Term:

  • Piano
  • Ukulele
  • Percussion

Spring Term:

  • Violin
  • Recorder
  • Tone chimes

Students must be 5 years old by September 1, 2018 to register for this class.

About Discovering Instruments Classes


Our Discovering Instruments 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.

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
