Classes for Children Ages 3 to 6
Note: The Music Studio will be taking every precaution to ensure the safety of its students, faculty, and staff while COVID-19 is still a public health concern. Following the guidance of the CDC and New York State’s Department of Health, social distancing, masks, and rigorous hygiene protocols will all be features of classroom instruction. We trust that our students and their families will help us all stay safe by complying with these measures.
Young children have an innate affinity for music, and they absorb new concepts quickly and easily. Music for the Young classes are a great way to get them started, in small, short-term classes grouped by age. Two-and three-year-olds will be captivated by songs, dances, instruments, rhythm games, and slightly older children will thrill to the puzzle of musical notation.
