Children learn and grow through play, with other children, teachers, and you. Early childhood music education is much like early literacy education. Reading to your infant is critical for developing literacy skills and a lifelong love of learning. Research has shown that learning, sharing and making music with your young child is equally important to develop cognitive, emotional, and artistic faculties.
Success in music. Success in life. It’s no coincidence.
Did you know:
• 80% of students who study music throughout school graduate from college vs. the national average of 27%?
• the very best engineers and technical designers in the Silicon Valley industry are, nearly without exception, practicing musicians.
• that high school students who participate in the arts are more likely to be charitable as adults?
• that we are all born with music potential, but if you don’t begin to learn music by the age of nine, your musical aptitude decreases for the rest of your life?
• secondary students who participated in band or orchestra reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances (alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs).
• Students with coursework/experience in music performance and music appreciation scored higher on the SAT: students in music performance scored 57 points higher on the verbal and 41 points higher on the math, and students in music appreciation scored 63 points higher on verbal and 44 points higher on the math, than did students with no arts participation.
Early Childhood Music Education at the Music School
Led by our skilled educators, our research-based programs will enhance your child’s development and create a lifelong love of music. In music children discover their singing voice and develop a sense of rhythm, with the use of instruments, movement, and songs. studying an instrument. This class is designed with goals for both the student and the parent. Our Early Childhood Classes encourage and support natural, age-appropriate gross motor and social development, and self- and artistic expression.
