MacPhail’s curriculum is developed by our highly trained and experienced ECM faculty in a curriculum team setting. The curriculum is play-based with a focus on best practices and research in early childhood music and child development. Our innovative, developmentally appropriate curriculum is year long, sequential with skills building week to week and year to year. Each class is full of fun engaging musical activities for both the young children and adults.
