Discover the Keys To Give Your Child a Head Start
At The Music Place we recognize that the first five years of life are an extraordinary time, filled with wonder and exploration. It's in these early years that the path to future educational success is established. And music is an important stepping stone on that path.....
That's why we have a passion for the music education of the young child.
For children music is simply fun. Yet your child has her own special way of discovering and acquiring knowledge.
How significant would it be for you to know, as early as three years of age, how your child learns, what her musical sensitivity is, and how her personality affects her learning?
One of the ground-breaking benefits you'll receive when you simply consider The Music Place for your child is a free, personalized assessment of her natural musical aptitude and her learning style. We value your child's uniqueness and are committed to honoring it.
What does that mean for you and your child? We take the extra care and time to be sure she is assigned to the right class, with the right teacher, in the right setting tailored to her individuality. It's this commitment to meeting her needs that sets The Music Placeapart from other music programs.
Riveting Classes Keep Your Child Excited
Exciting, fast-paced sessions will keep your child totally engaged and proud of his new-found abilities. Children 12 months and older may enjoy group music learning or vocal or dance performance classes.
If your child is between 12 and 36 months, you'll want to join one of our Family Classes (toddler-parent participation). These classes are a wonderful opportunity for a special time of bonding with your child in a warm, encouraging environment.
Your preschooler (3-5 years old) will gain a sense of independence by being a part of a small group of children (no more than 8 to a class) where she will be able to receive personal attention and have been honored for her uniqueness.
In progressively older Early Music Awareness or Vocal All Arts classes, children 4 to 7 years explore and identify their musical gifts and instrument inclinations, helping you as parents feel more secure about your child's choices and readiness to move on to the next exciting phase of learning.
How We Can Boost Your Child's Development
The Music Place also offers a comprehensive, sequential plan for her musical development beyond preschool.
When she's developmentally ready we have private lessons for voice and instruments including piano, percussion, woodwinds, brass, and strings. Our large staff of trained music teachers offers a variety of teaching styles so that your child can be placed with one tailored for her.

Even as young as three years old, your child will be proud of her ability to identify notes and distinguish their values. And she will be excited to share with you the handouts she'll receive with every lesson.

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
