Children’s Programs

We offer three different programs for younger children.

Early Childhood Music 3 – 6 year olds

Class Length: 30 minutes for 2 Students, 45 minutes for 3 – 6 students

Each class starts with singing into microphones and rotating for a turn on a full drum kit. A different instrument is featured each week ranging from steel drum to French horn. Students try it hands on and learn about the instruments’ parts, family and how it works. A new song is learned each class to play on xylophone and piano. A variety of games and activities are used to teach different concepts including tempo, beat lengths, pitch, notation symbols and more. Each term also includes a “make an instrument day” where we explore a hand crafted instrument and each student makes their own to take home.

Primary Music 5 – 8 year olds

Class Length: 30 minutes with 2 students per class

This program offers 10 minutes of group drum instruction teaching how to play basic beats and read drum music. Each student also receives 10 minutes of individual piano or guitar instruction. The other 10 minutes of each class is spent working through a music theory computer program or practicing on a keyboard with headphones.

Semi-private Piano 5 – 12 year olds

Class Length: 30 minutes with 2 students per class

This program offers 15 minutes of individual piano instruction and 15 minutes working through a music theory computer program or practicing on a keyboard with headphones. It is ideal for younger students not yet ready for a full 30 minute private lesson and can be a more economical choice for some.
