Class Descriptions

The Spring Session begins January 21 and runs through April 25.

The health of our students is our top priority.

Early childhood classes normally scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for the coming week have been rescheduled to the end of the session. The rescheduled classes will now take place April 21, 22, & 23.

The following week is spring break and we were already scheduled to be off March 24, 25, and 26 so no classes will take place on those dates as well.

BUT STAY TUNED…on Saturday March 21, Toddler, Preschooler, Pre-Kinder and Kindergarten classes will be ONLINE through the Zoom platform! All students in these classes will be invited to join us!

You will receive further information on how classes will run following spring break soon.

Babies Music Class (up to 18 months)

Tues: 11:15 am, Wed: 10:45 am, or Thur: 10:15 am or 6:30 pm

All babies are born with an aptitude for music. But research shows that their aptitude diminishes if it is not nurtured. The best way to nurture a child’s music aptitude is through active music making. By singing and dancing for and with our children in a variety of tonalities, meters and styles we are helping our children reach their full music potential. This weekly 30 minute class allows for musical play between parent and baby. Activities help stimulate the baby’s innate curiosity about music, develop listening skills and sense of beat, and establish the foundation for future learning. Music & Movement for Babies features bouncing and rocking songs, nursery rhyme chants and dances, wiggle and peek-a-boo games.

This weekly 40 minute class fosters the natural sense of musical wonder of the growing child.

Preschoolers Music Class (3 1/2 – 4 1/2 years)

Thur: 3:30 pm or Sat: 9:45 am

There is so much magic in the third year of early childhood! Preschoolers love to learn and express themselves in so many ways! In this 50 minute weekly music class we encourage self-expression using the voice and body. Fine and gross motor skills are encouraged and students are introduced to solfege and Gordon rhythm patterns which will be the cornerstone of musical literacy. We also work on inner speech and focused listening, while joyfully singing, dancing and playing instruments. Growing independence is nurtured as children venture out from their caregiver’s lap to join the teacher in many activities. Singing, movement, focused listening and instrument playing fosters the child’s ability to use language and engage in dramatic play, creative movement and imaginative musical games.
