Age Groups

6 Weeks – 3 Years

6 Weeks – 3 Years

Music activity for infants and toddlers
engages the aural and physical being.
At this level, musical play creates and
reinforces the special bond between the
adult and the infant, while also
introducing music to the child. Engaging
in musical play helps Toddlers begin to
develop large motor and language skills.
It is the perfect age to introduce rhythm
and phrasing.

4-5 Years

4-5 Years

Children in this age group are
now capable of singing a wide
range of songs and doing more
complicated games and rhymes.
Their listening skills are becoming
sophisticated. They can understand
basic vocabulary and building
blocks of music. New concepts that
we introduce are changing tempos,
pitch, loud and soft dynamics,
articulation, meter, and timbre.

6-8 Years

6-8 Years

Children this age learn best when
they are actively involved in
MAKING music. Developmentally,
this age group likes to interact with
their peers. Small group lessons are
fun and rewarding. Groups that
meet over time to learn together
with guidance and collaboration can
make the world of music a very
inviting place.
