Music Classes for Children
Ages 6 months and up
Curriculum of all classes is based on SUZUKI(ear training), ORFF SCHULWERK(playing of melodic and rhythmic instruments-xylophones, glockenspiels, etc.) DALCROZE(movement) AND KODALY(singing and rhythmic patterns). These men were contemporaries of each other; each perfected not a method but a teaching and learning approach. Our classes’ success and uniqueness lies in the incorporation of the blending of their approaches as many of their approaches overlap/blend.
Children are placed in classes based on musical abilities and experiences rather than age.
Attendance-Make-Up Classes and Tuition
Parents and students are expected to make a commitment to consistently attend throughout the year. Because classes are small(up to 8) enrollment is limited; most importantly, the children’s success is definitely related to weekly attendance and interaction with their classmates. The class can only progress without the reteaching of missed lessons.
There is no reduction in tuition for missed classes. Tuition is payable at the first lesson of each semester and is non-refundable.
* I hope that you will enjoy this special time with your child and please remember that your participation in class is ESSENTIAL , especially for your child.
* I ask parents to refrain from engaging in conversation with other parents during class time.
* Siblings who attend must be registered
*NO TOYS, FOOD OR DRINK ARE ALLOWED IN THE MUSIC ROOM. It can be very disturbing and distracting to other children if they can not “Share” your items.
