Group Lessons

Music for Me is a play based introduction to music for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Classes are held Saturdays from 10am to 10:45am for 8 weeks, three times a year. Preschoolers love repetition and build knowledge through repeated exposure to concepts. Through guided listening, singing, games, moving to music and using rhythm instruments, the children will discover that music has pitch, tempo, dynamics, beat and rhythm. Experience with these basic musical concepts will help prepare the students for lessons when they reach the appropriate age. The main goal is to have fun and foster a life-long love for music! The next Music for Me runs September 28th to November 16th, 2019 and is $144.00 for the full 8 weeks.
