Our Preschool Program Benefits
A Unique Music Program....
We proudly offer an innovative, comprehensive piano based program for toddlers & young learners!
ENROLL YOUR CHILD IN OUR WEEKLY CLASSES!
Parent participation is required.
DID YOU KNOW? Quality music learning in early childhood is linked to high achievement later in life. Learning music positively impacts a child’s social, emotional and cognitive development. It facilitates math skills, memory, attention, concentration, coordination, discipline, language, social skills, and many more!
The younger a child starts learning music - the better!
HOW DOES YOUR MUSIC PROGRAM DIFFER FROM OTHERS? Unlike other sing-and-dance classes for children - our curriculum stands out! It is researched based - combining Orff, Dalcroze, Suzuki, Kodaly, Reggio Emilia, Montessori philosophies into one comprehensive curriculum. Our piano based curriculum incorporates a wholistic understanding of musical concepts. Classes include solfège singing/audiation, music & movement, melodic & harmonic ear training, ensemble playing, listening activities, music games that integrate theory, and creative activities. The youngest students start with keyboard readiness activities until they can learn to play the piano, read & write notes, and even create their own simple melodies! All classes are age-appropriate. Children and accompanying adults engage and enjoy learning in a fun environment!

WHAT WILL YOU SEE IN OUR PRESCHOOL CLASSROOM?
Hear the singing of a self-composed lullaby from a 3 year old as another little friend plays a Chilean cactus rainstick. Together, they lull a baby to sleep Admire a community collage rendered by imaginative toddlers and proudly displayed on our art wall Lend an ear to the children’s imagined story about Ben, an evil-guy-turned-protagonist, who learned how to love by caring for a den of lost baby snakes See children —carrying with them a throng of questions— march off to the park to explore nature, learn science as they observe ants in their dwelling.
Watch a child instinctively calm down and lay on the floor, as others sway to the spare, gentle, and dreamy piano music of Satie Partake in the performance of a child dancing, drawn to the beautiful and grandiose sentiments of Rachmaninoff’s music The mood of a rainy morning is not quite solemn as we read Prelutsky’s hilariously witty “It’s Raining Pigs and Noodles!”
"There are countless more adventures to be sought, knowledge to be seized, and stories to be told. We are not empty vessels waiting to be filled with information. We are brimming with ideas and possibilities, and we have a 'hundred languages' to express them!"
