Little Musicians


Little Musicians, a new early childhood music program at the Academy of Music, gives children ages 0-5 the opportunity to enjoy music, all while having fun with their caregiver, their teacher, and their peers. Children will be given the opportunity to develop their ears, sing in tune, and try a variety of instruments. Little Musicians helps children to develop a positive attitude towards music, play, and education that will last a lifetime.

8 Week Session with caregiver

In this class, infants will start exploring their musical interests through lullabies, rhymes, and traditional foot and finger play! Each class begins with free play where caregivers can socialize and little ones can explore and settle into our special musical environment. Caregivers will bond with their babies as they sing, learn, and listen together.

About The Little Musicians Program

About The Little Musicians Program

After meeting each other during the RCM Summer Intensive Music in Early Education, Danielle Dixon (B.P.S., M.A., Doctoral Researcher) and Aubrey Parker began collaborating to create the Little Musicians course. Both Aubrey and Danielle are seasoned music educators with a passion for teaching, learning, and performing, and strongly believe that early education music classes should be taught in a way that encourages the development of a positive, individualized connection to music. As designed by Dixon and Parker, every session is full of wonderful songs, games, rhymes, and musical activities that are rich in culture and will stand the test of time, and every class is unique and expertly planned to guide and develop Little Musicians.
