Why your child should begin with Music For Young Children (MYC)
Because it’s fun!! (In addition to being of superior quality, very comprehensive, confidence building and a wonderful way to begin the study of music.)
Because the child and parent bond as a “music team” during lessons and that carries on at home during daily practice and other family activities.
Because this program provides musicianship training to young children and leads them directly to a minimum of ABRSM Grade 2 practical & Grade 3 theory level. It is the only child centered program to integrate keyboard, singing, ear training, sight reading, creative movement, rhythm, music theory and music composition.
