Music FunTime Group Classes (3 to 6 years old)
Music FunTime is not just a simple play group where children sing, dance, jump & play instruments. This is an internationally acclaimed early childhood music program based on Johns-Hopkins Research indicating that children 7 and under can learn to read music notation and symbols, and learn to play instruments in a fun and nurturing environment.
This dynamic and comprehensive early childhood music program is music theory based, and exposes students to additional instruments including violins, guitars, drums, flutophones, and singing. Music FunTime is a progressive curriculum that gives students a strong musical foundation.
Classes are at a set time each week and are between 2 and 6 students. Each class is 30 minutes, packed full of dynamic musical activities, perfectly suited to the attention span of the young child. These lessons are especially good for the child who is not yet ready to sit through a private half-hour lesson, or for any child who really wants to start any musical instrument, but is not quite ready for the traditional private lesson.
