Please note, that as each child is unique, this is a general guideline of ages. Speak to our experienced staff if you have a question as to which class will be best for your child.

Our four-year-olds are very capable. In this class we will delve more deeply into musical concepts of tempo, meter and pitch, simple notation, the musical staff, and learning how to read and play simple rhythms. Street chants, rhythms and rhymes are great vehicles for beat and rhythm games. Learning how to be a conductor, acting out simple songs, orchestrating songs with our Orff percussion or ethnic instruments and learning simple dances from a wide variety of ethnic traditions, are some of the favorite musical activities of the year. Solo singing, echo singing and group singing are all encouraged to develop good pitch and vocal skills. So, come join the fun as we continue to foster your child’s musical education!
