Let’s Play Music (Ages 4 – 6)

Click Here for the Fall 2023 Calendar

Let’s Play Music is the premier program for developing the complete musician starting between the ages of 4-6 years. A child’s young brain is able to absorb high level musical concepts best at this age range through folk songs, creativity, games, imagination, and instruments geared to their learning abilities. Beginning students learn staff awareness, rhythm reading skills, ear training and solfege hand signs using engaging approaches and instruments to improve motor abilities. The skills are then transferred to playing the piano while also learning chord notation, intervals, and harmonic improvisation. The third year culminates in transposition, sight-reading, composition with a self-written piece performed in the final semester. Many graduates continue with piano lessons, but some change instruments to guitar, violin, choir, band, etc. having learned lifelong musical abilities transcending typical piano learning.
