Children's Music Workshop
Inspiring Young Minds

Our structured learning and play aims to promote inquisitiveness, creativity, positive socialization, and general learning readiness. We believe that learning to play an instrument or sing inspires confidence, encourages persistence and responsibility, and ignites creativity. That’s why we provide instruction for children as young as six months.

Building Confidence through Music and Movement

For children ages 3 to 4, the focus is on gaining independence and competence with basic music and movement skills, forming their own music-making community, and exploring learning concepts in greater depth. For children ages 4 and older, the focus is on developing beginning theory skills, ear training, notation, and musical development through singing, creative expression, and body movement, and beginning ensemble work using specially designed percussion instruments.
