Build a Musical Foundation -- Using a small-group approach to music education, Young Musicians provides a pressure-free class where your child can develop a strong musical foundation by learning the concepts, language, notation, and vocabulary of music and its greatest composers. The program is designed to prepare the young child who is eager for first experiences with musical symbols and instrument discovery but is not yet ready for formal lessons and traditional music reading with an instrument.
What musical potential does your child possess? What instrument interests them the most? Should you begin piano lessons? Guitar lessons? Violin lessons? Questions, questions? Your child is born with potential! But for what instrument? Why not try several in one class and let the exposure to the glockenspiel, dulcimer or recorder guide their interest to future keyboard, string or wind instrument instruction? This class will continue to build their internal steady beat, introduce them to beginning music reading skills.
**Level 1 - Introduction to the Glockenspiel and Rhythm Reading
**Level 2 - Learning to play the Glockenspiel and Notation Reading
**Level 3 - Learning to play the 3-string Dulcimer
**Level 4 - Learning to play the Recorder
