Finding the musician in every child
Current research shows that early childhood (birth- 6 years) music education enhances all aspects of brain development; stimulates more neuron connectivity and has a long-term impact on the brains ability to develop to it’s fullest potential. With the internationally recognized Musikgarten curriculum we strive to develop functioning musicians, finding joy in music, learning to improvise, write and read music, and eventually learning to play the piano.
Mixed Age Move and Groove
Ages 1 – 3 years
Our Mixed Age class for ages 1-3 uses dance, song, & play to learn about music and even the piano, and we’re setting the ideal stage. Using the KiddyKeys & Company curriculum, we give each child and their adult partner the opportunity to happily sing, move, and learn beginner music concepts together in a caring learning environment. Books and songs will be shared with each child while they interact and play music with their classmates. In addition to teaching music, our classes focus on the development of fine and gross motor skills, positive social skills, and identification of letters, numbers, and colors.

Kiddy Keys: ages 3 – 5 yrs
KiddyKeys is a modern and engaging approach to teaching music concepts and piano skills to preschool children ages 3 to 5. Our methods enable and encourage children to learn about music and the piano in ways that best meet their needs, maximizing their ability to understand and enjoy what they are learning. Our classes are kid-tested and parent-approved, and we’ve got the data to prove our success!
Weekly improvisation on the keyboard, music theory and composition are combined with the traditional elements of music and movement, school readiness skills, and character development. In KiddyKeys, children have so many learning opportunities — all in the name of fun!
Check here later this summer for our fall programs!

Keyboard Magic lays the groundwork for keyboard success! Through the variety of activities in each class the children become independent musicians. They have both a love of music and a love of specific repertoire. In addition to playing the keyboards, the children will be involved in drumming and dancing to nurture their rhythmic development, singing to nurture their tonal development, and echoing patterns to nurture their aural development, as well as composing and musical dictation activities that lead the children to musical literacy. Those who enroll in this 3 year program have a solid foundation to continue on in piano or any instrument they choose. Levels 1 & 2 are 60 min long, levels 3-6 are 75 min long. All levels include a book, two CD’s and a beginning parent guide.
