Early Years (ages 4–6)
Early Years is a beginning music exploratory program designed for preschool, TK, and Kindergarten students. This class focuses on the fundamentals of music — ear training, healthy singing, intonation, early-music reading skills, beat-keeping, focus, concentration, and improvisation. Early Years is an active learning environment, engaging students' motor, oral, aural, and cognitive skills. Instruction is active and game-oriented. This is a non-auditioned, non-performing group.
Early Years classes are offered in 6-to-8 week sessions in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Students are welcome to enroll in all sessions.
