At The Music Place we recognize that the first five years of life are an extraordinary time, small boy with teacherfilled 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?

This is a fun, informal time with parents and children (ages 3 and up) in which we play simple games that help identify each child's unique learning preferences, innate musical aptitudes and  developmental readiness for various types of instruction.

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 Place apart from other music programs.
