The Young Musicians Course is founded on the belief that every child loves music. During this three-year program, children participate in activities that teach basic musical skills and encourage independence, creativity and self-expression. The course appeals to the imagination of a young mind and becomes an integral part of your child’s growth. For beginning musicians ages 6-8, class activities include ear training, piano repertoire, keyboard harmony, music theory, exposure to arranging, singing, ensemble playing, and improvisation.
Attendance: Students are expected to attend class for the full semester. Consistent attendance and keeping up with the home assignment will aid in musical success. Some fluctuations in interest are perfectly normal and should not signal the end of musical training for your child. Your teacher will be able to address any concerns about your child’s progress. Your teacher will also advise you about enrollment in the next level of the course.
There is no reduction in tuition for missed lessons. Missed lessons can sometimes be made up by attending a class of the same level with another teacher. This is subject to availability and at the teacher’s discretion.
