Choose your own goals and work on music that you love--whether classical, pop or jazz. Parents are welcome, but not required, to attend lessons and stay engaged in the process.

We offer plenty of extra tools and resources to help you at home too! Students are encouraged to sign up and perform in recitals and performances throughout the year as well!

In our group classes, you can expect to focus on getting started right away making music. Students are able to collaborate together with easy and challenging versions of assignments so they can experience playing with others. Classes include a well-rounded variety of activities including playing by ear, understanding music theory, improvising and creating music, reading music and more.

Music Explorer (3-6 years old)

  • Students are taught how to understand rhythm and pitch and how it is used to make music. We focus on building a musical vocabulary foundation that will be built upon on the following programs. We introduce instruments such as xylophone, drums and lots of singing.

Instrument Explorer (6-8 years old)

  • Students build on skills from the Junior Explorer class. Students come together to learn how real music works. They learn the foundations of music through exploring. We add concepts of melody, harmony and rhythm.  They also learn how to read, write, and make music.  They learn music theory and reading skills. Here, we explore many instruments that the students are passionate about playing and understand what makes each instrument unique.

Junior Piano Explorer (5-7 years old)

  • For budding piano players, the Junior Piano Explorer class (which has options for both readers and pre-readers) gives students a fun story-based format with friends and allows them to practice piano skills AND creativity at the keyboard.  Every assignment has a variety of challenge levels to make sure each child is practicing to their full potential
