Frequently Asked Questions

 

My child is __ years old, which program should I enroll him or her in?

We look at a number of factors when we're figuring out which program to recommend for each child. The most important are age (as of Sept) and school grade, so we use the following list as our starting point:

  • Ages 0 - 3.5 ................. Music Pups

  • Age 3.5 - 4 .................. Sunrise
  • Age 4 & Preschool ......... Sunrise

  • Age 4 & Kindergarten .... Sunshine 1

  • Age 5 & Kindergarten .... Sunshine 1

  • Age 5 & Grade 1 ........... Sunbeams 1

  • Age 6 .......................... Sunbeams 1

  • Age 7 & Grade 1 ........... Sunbeams 1

  • Age 7 & Grade 2 ........... Moonbeams 1

  • Age 8 .......................... Moonbeams 1

  • Age 9 .......................... Moonbeams 1

We will sometimes recommend moving up or down a level based on other factors, such as previous music training or where the child is at developmentally, but that is something we'll figure out in consultation with the parent(s) at a demo class or registration appointment.

Do you teach voice? Or guitar? Or any instrument besides piano?

​No, we do not. We do a lot of singing in all of our programs, but our goal with the singing is simply to help the children learn how to sing in tune. We do not teach vocal technique. Nor do we provide formal instruction in any instrument other than piano. That being said, having a solid background in piano and music fundamentals, as taught in the Music for Young Children® program, would be highly beneficial to learning any other instrument!
