Music Programs For Children


WHY WAIT?? By starting music lessons as early as possible, WITH THE RIGHT PROGRAM - one that maintains the fun of childhood, a child 18 months and older can learn music and progress well. Maintaining the "fun" of childhood, along with a proven, structured curriculum, is how we help our youngest musicians get a great start.

It is that spirit of play in which real learning takes place! This is what we have waiting for you and your child at Boston School of Music Arts.

The BSMA Early Childhood Music Program is designed for children ages 18 months through 7. The programs foster self-confidence and the unfolding of each child’s musical interests, through group classes in music, or kid-sized private lessons.

Here are three great options:

MUSICSKOOL 4 KIDS: This program is for kids ages 3 - 5. Designed 11 years ago, by the School Director, to spark the musical creativity in young children, this is a popular class for kids. It combines hands on musical instrument exploration, learning to internalize musical rhythm, basic music concepts, note names, and an appreciation of broad styles of music for young children through listening, movement, visual arts - in small groups of 6 students or less. THIS CLASS RE-OPENS in OCTOBER 2021! Group classes only, limited sessions and spaces. $109/month
