Early Childhood

The Early Childhood program at the New School of Music is designed to provide our youngest students with a fun and developmentally appropriate introduction to music instruction.  Each of these classes focuses on the building blocks of music and child development, using movement, ear training, simple instruments, and creative play.  Every class will provide a solid foundation of musical skills, and will help prepare children for whatever path they follow, be it group instrument classes, our choral program, or private lessons.
