Young Children

Music education has significant positive influences on brain development in young children. In addition to improving intelligence, music will help your child develop physically, emotionally, and socially. For our youngest students, Kansas City School of Music offers the following educational programs for toddlers:

Musikgarten – Experience the joy of music with your child through our interactive Musikgarten classes. These small classes are designed to expose each child to music through age-appropriate activities such as dancing, singing, listening to music, as well as playing rudimentary instruments.

Suzuki Piano and Violin – For students ages 3 and up, we offer Suzuki elements combined with traditional methods based on the individual needs of the student. Students will learn to play the chosen instruments aurally with gradual steps toward reading musical notation. This method also requires a great deal of parental involvement, including supervised practice sessions and attendance at each lesson.
