The field of Early Childhood Music Education at Burbank Music Academy involves parent and teacher guided interactive musical play for young children. The idea is to provide babies, toddlers and pre-school aged children with a safe, fun and nurturing musical environment. Our classes are divided into four basic groups:
Adagio - 7-18 months- Classes focus on mobility, language, parental involvement and hands on activities.
Andante - 18 months- 2 1/2 years- Classes focus on interaction, singing, sharing and hands on activities.
Allegro - 2 1/2 to 4 years- Classes focus on interaction including remembering names of instruments and musical terms, singing, sharing and hands on activities that usually include trying instruments.
Maestro - 4-6 years- Classes focus on individuality, interaction, sharing, hand on activities and introduces the idea of performance and playing together.
Class size - Minimum 2, Maximum 12
Class length - Jr. Jams classes are 40 minutes in length with a 10 minute warm up and a 10 minute clean up time for a total class length of approximately 60 minutes.
Free trial class- The first class is always FREE Come give it a try.
