Early Childhood Music

A child's musical education begins with the melody and rhythm of the parent's voice. It continues with the support of family and school as voice, body and spirit begin to respond to and create music. Academy classes foster the development and refinement of general musical ability by providing an environment that is rich in the language of music. The activities learned in class are easily repeated at home, thus nurturing basic skills, strengthening the musical bond between child and caregiver, and building support for the future study of any instrument.
