INTRODUCTION

Group Class for Children is designed to give children as young as four years old an excellent start in their musical life.

 

APAM’s focus is first to naturally cultivate a love of music in every child and to foster an understanding of music second. Therefore, musical concepts will be introduced in a fun way using the Dalcroze method -- music education through body movement.

 

Every activity is designed to teach a musical concept through multi-sensory approach: aural (listening and singing), visual (reading, recognizing symbols and notes), and kinestic (movement and games).

 

These musical concepts will form a lifelong music foundation regardless of the instrument your child chooses to study in the future.

 

Besides music appreciation, your child will reap the additional benefits of improved coordination, cognitive and listening skills, as well as self-confidence and discipline.
