Children love the sound of music. Whether the rhythm causes them to nod their heads or the tempo provokes them to sway to the left and right, music is a big part of their lives. It also helps them to actively comprehend more about the world around them. So why not help them to turn that love into skills they can use for a lifetime?
The Florentine School of Music, Art & Academics is founded on the belief that every child loves music. With the Young Musicians Course for children ages 6 to 8, children will be able to participate in activities that teach basic musical skills and encourage independence, creativity and self-expression. During the three-year program, your child will also explore and discover new things as it relates to their imagination, which will become an integral part of your child's growth.
For beginning musicians, the Florentine School of Music's Young Musicians Course will feature class activities including ear training, solfege, keyboard repertoire, keyboard harmony, music theory, exposure to arranging, singing, ensemble playing and improvisation. Classes are specifically designed for 8 to 10 students.
