Music in Motion Children's Program

The Music Studio's Music in Motion Program is designed to bring children 2 to 5 years of age together in small, age-appropriate groups where they will experience the fun and creativity of music in a stimulating learning environment.

You can join a class at any time during a session.

Classes for children 2 & 3 years of age focus on:

  • Singing
  • Pitch Recognition
  • Call and Response Of Melody
  • Rhythm and Movement
  • Performance
  • Music Appreciation

Classes for children 4 & 5 years of age focus on:

  • Playing percussion instruments
  • Singing
  • Introduction to Playing pitched instruments such as the xylophone
  • Introduction to music notation
  • Movement
Music in Motion Classes

All of these concepts are presented to the children in small, age-appropriate classes using fun musical exercises and percussion instruments designed for early childhood music programs such as Music in Motion. The children are also educated and entertained through the playing of musical instruments by the teacher throughout the class.

In the class, the children learn musical skills that have wonderful rewards such as increased self-esteem, improved focus and healthy peer relationships. Our program also provides opportunities for parent and child to bond through music. Music enjoyed in a small group setting is a fantastic way for young children to work together, and provides a safe place where they can be free to express themselves.

Much has been written regarding the benefits of musical instruction and music classes for young children in terms of brain development and the development of cognitive skills. These benefits include improved language, mathematical and memory skills; and a better developed ability to concentrate at home and at school. Young children who have received music instruction often perform better at school than children who have not.

If a child does go on to take private instrumental or vocal lessons, this program kick starts their lifelong love and enjoyment of music.
