Your child is at the age where their world is beginning to open up. They're becoming more independent and ready to join classes by themselves as a "big kid." They will want to explore and ask about the things around them even more. That's what our drop-off music classes for big kids are all about.
Our classes for ages three to six create a musical environment where your big kid can thrive. Challenging and fun music activities complement your child’s preschool music curriculum or help prepare them for individual music lessons. Plus, your son or daughter will build life skills such as leadership, decision-making, and teamwork.
Through class activities like drumming, game songs, improvisation, composition, and conducting, your big kid will be well on his way to a lifetime of joyful music-making.
