Early Childhood Music Classes 2016-17

Concordia Conservatory embraces the philosophy that all children are musical and therefore can achieve basic music competence, and that the best learning environment is one that is playful, developmentally appropriate, and musically rich. Listening, singing, moving, and playing percussion instruments, are key activities leading to reading and notating music. Through creative, engaging music play, children are given the foundation for a comprehensive music education and the tools to express themselves artistically.

Music Babies

Designed for the 6–17 month old child, teachers guide adults in fostering the music development of babies through singing and chanting, rhythmic taps and claps, tickles and wiggles, and bouncing and rocking. Through group participation with small percussion instruments and engaging props, the babies’ innate abilities are heightened for an early start on tuning their ears to the joy of music.

Music Toddlers

These classes offer an opportunity for adults and young children to experience the pleasures of group music-making.

Lessons are tailored to address each age group and ongoing developmental changes. Small percussion instruments, engaging props, and storytelling experiences provide sequential music learning in an appropriately structured setting.
