PROGRAM INFO

The program consists of 4 levels (A - D), and each level takes 1 semester (spring or fall) to complete. However, registration is held on a semester-by-semester basis, so students do not need to commit to more than one semester at a time.

 

Currently, only children in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Grade can begin the program, and all students must start in Level A. Please note Level A Kindergarten classes are only offered in the spring, and Level A 2nd Grade classes are only offered in the fall.

Level A is for new students and introduces foundational theory, technique, musicality, and solo and ensemble playing. Students begin to identify notes on the treble clef staff and are introduced to reading music using intervals. Fun games energize the class and promote "playing to learn." Weekly online practice videos act as a one-on-one "practice pal" to help students practice songs at home. During the last class of the semester, students perform for their families in the classroom in a fun and low-stress setting, followed by treats to celebrate their hard work!
