“Music for Little Mozarts” by Alfred Publisher 

The purpose of this class is to acquaint the young child with the basic components of music: melody, harmony and rhythm in various simple forms as necessary pre-requisites for continued musical growth and enjoyment throughout life. They are introduced to "call and response" singing, as well as use of percussion instruments, and usage of our Yamaha state-of-the-art piano lab

The piano is an ideal vehicle for acquiring the language of music via the three senses of sight, touch and hearing. Children can see what they are doing both at the keyboard and on the printed page. They can reach out and touch the keys they are playing and they can hear the various combinations of sonorities. Awareness of musical patterns and elements at this young age is very effective, as kids learn to communicate their feelings through music in a more natural way.

This year-long program happens over the course of multiple sessions which are progressive in difficulty (each session being 8 weeks long), and it prepares younger students for private lessons, which are much more structured and a larger commitment than our Pre-Piano class. While many of our pre-piano students go on to taking private piano lessons, the skills learned in the class can also prepare students for voice lessons and other instruments.
