Music for Young Children Classes
Sunrise – Pre-keyboard music and movement (3 years) Sunrise is an exciting and innovative pre-school music & movement program with a flexible format that fits the level of development of these children perfectly. Our Teddy Bears help teach the children rhythms and puppet friends Buzz, Buddy and Mellow guide children on their music journey and instruction with singing, and ear training.
Sunshine – Beginner keyboard (4 – 5 years) Students experience movement through beats and rhythms, as well as developing fine motor skills with rhythm instrument ensemble playing. Children start learning the geography of the piano and note-reading through our MYC Critters (and their stories that children can relate to).
Sunbeams – Beginner keyboard (5 – 6 years) Students are first introduced to piano geography and rhythms through our MYC Critters to help set their foundation of music knowledge and education; however, the pace of learning for these Sunbeams matches their developmental stages.
Moonbeams – Beginner keyboard (7 – 9 years) This older student beginner program is designed to support the students’ growing sense of independence. Reading becomes the primary focus for gathering information, while the songs, ensembles and keyboard repertoire incorporate early piano literature, folk songs, technique and harmonization.

Music Pups Classes
The first months and years of life are the most important in a child’s musical development. This program is so much more than just circle time music, the Music Pups experience helps students from newborn – 4 years develop their pitch and rhythm skills and become more responsive to music in general.
While we take our goal of educating children very seriously, we know that the key to success lies in one word — fun! Everyone has a great time in Music Pups. Children as well as their parents love our activities and listening to our CDs at home.
Registration and payment are per family – we welcome siblings to join us at no extra charge! Class waitlists are available for days and times currently not on the schedule.
