More info coming soon. We would like to start our classes in Fall of 2024. We are excited to bring you this programing. Below is the details of the program!
Unlock your child's musical potential with our early learning voice and music lessons for ages 8-12. Our comprehensive curriculum covers everything from reading music and vocal technique to posture and music theory, including distinguishing bass and treble clefs.
At the end of the course, each student will showcase their progress by naming every note on both clefs and performing two songs in a group or choir setting. In addition, every last Friday of the month, students will enjoy a special performance from a professional classical musician, featuring live classical Bolero and Aria from our experienced teachers, or instrumental pieces.
Our program features up to four classes, each with a maximum of ten students, meeting twice a week for one hour. With four dedicated music teachers and a digital learning center, our music book Voices Classes for Kids (available in English and Spanish), and a focus on live performance demonstrations, your child will have all the tools they need to thrive. Join us on this musical journey and watch your child's talent blossom.
