The Children’s Music Program is designed for children ages 2 years and 10 months and up. Starting at just the right age is important. If you have are or have been a parent of young children, you know that they absorb significantly more information most easily between age 2 and 5, than as they get older. You can take advantage of this by starting our preparatory music programs at that age. The programs foster self-confidence and the development of each child’s musical interests, while preparing them for private music study.
Below is a guide to help you select the best music training based on your child’s age and interests. Alternatively, you can call to schedule a placement lesson appointment with the school Music Programs Director.
