Animal Adventures in Music
Music Introductory Classes for 3-6 year olds
A NEW TYPE OF MUSIC CLASS FOR CHILDREN & TODDLERS.
This private music lesson program for ages 3-6 gives students a head start in music in a FUN way! Unlike other music lessons for students this age, this program teaches a robust, comprehensive curriculum, covering topics from rhythm to note reading to instrument introduction and exposure, all through games, activities, and fun weekly homework!
Lessons in an individual, one-to-one format (one teacher, one student) give students the ability to move at their own pace and explore their own interests. Our experienced teachers are ready to take your child to the next level.
10 LEVELS, 10 BOOKS, 10 INSTRUMENTS
Throughout this exciting program, your child will travel through 10 themed books with their teacher, exploring a different instrument in each. Every book is filled to the brim with learning activities, games, stickers and more and easily divides the program into 10 extremely structured levels, each of which builds off the previous. As your child completes each level, they will receive a special themed medal featuring the color and animal character from that level.
By the time your child graduates from this impressive program (typically about 60 weeks), they will be able to identify and understand basic music symbols, read and clap rhythms from crotchet to semiquaver, and read three octaves of notes on the stave, in addition to learning about instruments such as the piano, guitar, drums, violin, cello, clarinet, saxophone, and more!
Once your child has discovered their passion and has mastered all 10 levels of achievement, they’ll have the opportunity to graduate effortlessly into our vocal or instrumental private lesson program, and even continue their level-based achievement journey through our Level Up Achievement Program.

TABLE TIME, RUG TIME, STAGE TIME
Animal Adventures classes are split into 3 sections – Table, Rug and Stage. Each section is 10 minutes long and jam-packed with fun and learning.
Table Time – The student and teacher work together to learn and practice new concepts using their Animal Adventures workbook as well as other resources such as a music stave whiteboard and flashcards.
Rug Time – The student and teacher meet on the Animal Adventures music stave rug for practice in note reading, rhythm, and musical expression. This high energy segment of the class solidifies concepts for young students utilizing fun backyard-style games and silly role-reversal variations.
Stage Time – This final segment of the class is spent in hands-on exploration, listening, and learning about one of ten instruments that will be covered.
During each level of the program, students will learn about a new instrument, having the opportunity to listen to it, see it, touch it, and learn how it works! The instruments covered in our music classes for kids and toddlers are:
PRIVATE LESSON PREPARATION
By the time students graduate from this program, they will be ready to begin private lessons in the instrument of their choice (as long as it is appropriate for their age). No matter what instruments they study going forward, they will have a tremendous head start and extremely strong foundation for the rest of their life! Students’ minds are very easily molded at this age, and our goal is to instill critical music foundations, knowledge, and a lifelong appreciation of music.
SCHEDULE AND TUITION
Lessons are available in 30, 45, and 60-minute sessions and occur once each week. Tuition includes one book, a tote bag and a beautiful, spinning medal upon passing each level. It takes most students approximately 60 weeks to complete the entire program and graduate to private instrument or vocal lessons. Animal Adventures in Music lessons are appropriate for students ages 3-6.
