A Unique Approach to Music Lessons
One-on-one Music Exploration classes focus on developing a love of all things music. Using your child's specific interests, Music Exploration classes give children access to explore music in their own way, at their own pace. This is the time when we want to spark their love of music in a supportive and safe setting. Rather than focus on one specific instrument or teaching method, these classes allow for creativity and spontaneity and are a perfect way for young ones to begin exploring the world of music!
WHAT DOES A MUSIC EXPLORATION CLASS LOOK LIKE?
Each Music Exploration class is structured around the interests and strengths of each explorer, therefore no two classes are the same! During the exploration time, your child will be encouraged to create, sing, move, ask questions, and take the lead. There is never homework or assigned practice, only suggestions to build upon each child’s interests.

In the middle of a class, an explorer starts to make up their own song. We may shift focus and spend the rest of our time expanding on the songwriting process. Do we need a plan? Are we improvising? Are we writing lyrics or using instruments? Should we add rhythming lyrics?
An explorer expresses interest in a specific song or band. We might spend our time listening together, talking about the music and lyrics, drawing to the music, creating a choreographed dance, learning the song on an instrument, playing along with the song...
