Our Paths To Excellence
The Music Place offers a path to excellence that begins with fun! These paths for early childhood exploration, vocal, instrumental and special needs are each carefully designed to keep students inspired to enjoy music for a lifetime.
Discover Our Educational Philosophy...
Early Childhood
AGES 1-6: Small, size-limited Family Classes with parents or caregivers (for ages 0-3) and small Early Music Awareness groups (for ages 3-6) delight the youngest students as they experience song, notes, instruments and other first steps on the exciting journey of learning music.
Learn About These First Steps...
AGES 6 & UP: To be well-prepared for instrumental lessons, students survey 7-8 size-appropriate instruments and learn keyboard basics. Teachers help students find the most appropriate instrument on which to continue their music learning journey. Private Lessons are the final step!
Explore Instrumental Options...
AGES 3 & UP: Determine your child's readiness! Educational Specialists play games with kids to assess aptitudes and development. They can then advise you on the best starting point or next steps for your child. Perfect for those with Special Needs, too.
Learn More About Assessments...
AGES 4 & UP: In "All Arts" (Vocal/Drama) classes, Vocal Ensembles and Private Lessons, singers develop skills in technique & performance. All styles and genres are offered and supported by frequent performance opportunities.

Special Needs
BIRTH-ADULT: Board Certified Music Therapists offer private and small group therapy sessions for clients with special needs of all levels. For clients with sustained attention, adaptive music lessons focusing on learning to play specific instruments are also available.
