Children’s Musicianship courses combine movement, song and dance to create a dynamic learning experience that’s tailored to the needs of young children. They are open to all children aged 3 to 8 and divided into sections by age, ensuring each child is placed in a group of peers. No previous experience required.

Students meet weekly to explore important musical concepts in a safe and supportive environment under direction of an experienced CMS coach, a professional musician who helps each student reach their full musical potential. The curriculum introduces children to the fundamentals of melody, rhythm and notation, the foundational skill set for all styles of music and instruments, in a small group format that cultivates each child’s natural creativity and artistry and builds the confidence required to perform music on stage.

In addition to learning music fundamentals, children gain valuable social skills. They discover the joy of playing music with each other while learning how to work as a team — one of the most critical aspects of musicianship! With countless studies revealing that the benefits of children’s music education extend beyond the classroom or stage, Children’s Musicianship is the perfect first step to any child’s musical journey!

“With music, one’s whole future life is brightened. This is such a treasure in life that it helps us over many troubles and difficulties. Music is nourishment, a comforting elixir. Music multiplies all that is beautiful and of value in life.”
– Zoltan Kodaly
