Early Childhood Music Class  (Public Programs)

Early Childhood Music Education classes are based on the research of Edwin Gordon and follow the curriculum developed by Dr. Cynthia Crump Taggart, Professor and Chair of Music Education at MSU and Director of the Early Childhood Music Program at CMS. Class activities include singing and chanting, moving to music, playing assorted percussion instruments, and pattern instruction. The goal of the curriculum is to increase children's music aptitude (potential to achieve in music) through engaging and entertaining musical activities, which will lay a foundation for lifelong music.

Early childhood music students start as early as birth. The youngest babies respond to class activities with rapt attention as they soak up the musical sounds. Older children begin to explore with their voices and their bodies. As they get older, many students develop their musical skills so that they can echo tonal and rhythmic patterns accurately, sing in tune, and move exactly with the musical beat.

Children attend early childhood music class with a parent or caregiver. Infant/toddler classes are offered for children 0-3 years, and preschool classes are offered for children 3-5 years.
