Let’s Play Music is a fun musicianship, music theory, and early piano course for your child. Students begin at age 4-6 and graduate three years later. This three-year program solves the problem that a child's brain is most ready to learn music at an early age, but their fingers and letter skills may not be ready yet for the piano. We take full advantage of the brain’s ability to absorb musical concepts through playful games and songs, and teach skills in a research-based and age appropriate way. Solfege hand signs, audiation, simple folk songs, active games, imagination and creativity are important components of each lesson.
Because Let's Play Music is play-based, this course allows children to enjoy learning at age-appropriate levels, without realizing they are building solid musical, educational, physical, and emotional skills! Read more about the philosophy and background of Let’s Play Music here.
With a total musicianship focus, touching on every element of music education, Let's Play Music prepares children to excel in further music instruction, in whatever instrument they choose! By the end of Let's Play Music, children will have developed a solid aural and music theory foundation. Learn more about each semester of the program by clicking the buttons below.

Parents/caregivers also attend and participate in class, starting with twice per month in the first year, and once per month in the 2nd and 3rd years. Classes are between 45-60 minutes in length.
