Early Childhood Department

Young students delve into the beginning steps of instrument playing in this group setting. Hands-on, exploratory classes are spent with each of the following instruments: percussion, piano, violin, cello, harp, recorder, and guitar. For each successive instrument, students explore timbre, dynamics, proper postural positions for producing sounds, and music terminology, establishing a foundation for their current and future music-making. A head teacher and a pianist lead the class throughout the year, and are joined by guest faculty for violin, cello, harp, and guitar. Exploring real acoustic instruments in a supportive, collaborative setting, children deepen their understanding and love of music. The order in which the instruments are studied throughout the year may vary.*

* Instrument usage fee for group class is $150 per student.
