Preschool Music Class (Ages 3-5)





Celebrate your child’s love of nature and growing independence through activities involving the four seasons.  Developed to build attention and self-expression, activities include singing, chanting, moving, focused listening, musical games, exploring musical instruments, creative movement and storytelling. This class nurtures your growing child’s ability to use language and participate in dramatic play within a musical context.  Fall and Winter semesters of this class are taught with curriculum unique to that semester.  We advise students to participate in at least four sessions of the Preschool Music Class before they move on to Music Makers.

Music Makers (Ages 4-6)


Your child will be engaged in activities that establish a solid music-making foundation. This year focuses on your child’s fascination with nature and develops a love of instruments. Your child will be introduced to the sounds of orchestral instruments individually, and then in the context of an ensemble. Such a listening foundation will lead to long-term success with music reading in future classes.  This also presents the beginning of reading and writing musical notation.  You can enroll in this course up to two years without curriculum repeating.  Please contact us if interested in finding a time for this class.


Children's Choir (Ages 7-12)

Children develop their sight reading, ear training, and vocal skills in this singing ensemble.  Songs learned will be performed at our Spring Concert.  Often our choir is invited to perform at various community events.  Past performances include Sea Port Village, Horton Plaza, Rancho Carlsbad, San Marcos Tree Lighting, Balboa Park December Nights, and Carlsbad Premium Outlets.  Space is limited.

Intermediate Vocal Ensemble (Ages 12-15)  

This audition only ensemble delves into vocal technique, three part harmony, note reading, ensemble singing, stage presence and solo singing.  Rehearsals focus on the technique of blending versus the technique of singing solos.  This performance driven ensemble will learn Holiday performance pieces for our Fall Concert.
