Music for Young Children
This is a comprehensive piano-based music program for children ages
3 & up. Created in Ontario in 1980, Music for Young Children is now being taught across Canada and internationally
in the United States, South Korea, Singapore and New Zealand. This program is an exciting, child-centered approach to learning
music. Working together in small age-specific groups with parents and teacher, children learn fundamental music skills. Singing,
movement, keyboard playing, games, music reading and theory are included in every lesson. Music history, composing, and performance
opportunities are highlights throughout the school year.
Students graduate from the program at a Grade One level,
and have the option of taking the examination with the Royal Conservatory of Music. An average student completes one level
per school year. However, the multiple levels make it possible for students to progress more quickly, or more slowly, depending
on their developmental needs.
Music for Young Children classes begin in September and continue,
with Christmas and Spring breaks, for 35 weeks, completing in early June.
