Children ages 18 months – 6 years learn music fundamentals in a group setting. For forty five minutes each week, they create music using boomwhackers, bells, percussion, and their own voices. We encourage children to learn rhythms and music through dance and instruments. Advanced students can learn recorder, ukulele, and piano. Our curriculum is based on Kindermusik, which integrates a combination of early childhood music education methods: Orff, Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Suzuki. Each one of these master theorists created brilliant music programs based on years of research. The Kindermusik program takes the best from each of these theorists and combines it into a holistic education for each child.

We understand that the schedules of young children and their parents can be pretty hectic! That’s why we decided to introduce the “Little Mozart’s Pass”. We sell passes by term and you can choose between 6, 8, 12 and 16 weeks worth of classes to take in that time period. You can also come to any class time!
Benefits of Music Education
- Stronger Language skills: Music and language are so connected, that a child’s first experience with language is often through music. You may not realize it, but the sing-song voice that parents use when speaking to a baby is actually a critical step in a baby’s developing language skills. The more a child is immersed in music, the quicker they develop the ability to communicate.
- Improved Hand-Eye Coordination: Whether playing an instrument or singing, music involves movement. Especially in our Little Mozart class, where students learn body awareness as they move and dance to music, the body’s coordination is enhanced through learning and experimenting with music.
- Teamwork and Social Skills: Through music we learn give-and-take, yielding to another part, being a respectful listener, taking turns to speak, and other crucial social skills. As children play with boomwhackers and other instruments, they learn how their effort and musical input affects the entire group. This builds positive experiences with a team.
- Increased Memory: Much of music is memorized. The more children practice at memorizing music, the more their memory is enhanced in general.
- Ability to Problem-Solve: Music provides many problems for children to work out and solve in a safe environment with teacher support. Problem-solving is one of the top priorities educators have to teach in schools, but it is also one of the harder skills to know how to teach. Music naturally gets kids to work together, cooperate, figure out how things work, and solve puzzles. This in turn has been shown to raise IQ and standardized test scores of children who study music.
- Musicality: Beyond all the extra benefits music can bring, it is important to remember the intrinsic value of music. Music is beneficial simply for music’s sake. The way music can change our mood, or motivate us to act is incredible in it’s own way. Getting the opportunity to experience the beauty of music is a treasure for anyone.
