What We Do!

Through lively songs, stories, rhymes and dance, The Music Train classes explore music concepts such as dynamics, pitch, rhythm, timbre, improvisation, melody and more.  Lots of hands on time with a variety of instruments, including guitar.  Exposure to many styles of music including classical, jazz, blues, folk and world. On top of providing rich and meaningful music and dance experiences, The Music Train focuses on whole child development, helping build physical, emotional, social and intellectual skills while nurturing  creativity and imagination.  Every child is different, The Music Train embraces all personalities and supports the personal growth and expression of every child.  Geared toward infant-4 year olds and their adults.

 

The Music Train's curriculum and class material has developed  from independent and intensive study of well respected early childhood music programs and educators as well as our own experience with music and young children.  What a ride it's been!
