Designed for parents who want to introduce piano to their young children, MYC® provides a comprehensive program that integrates keyboard, singing, ear training, sight reading, creative movement, rhythm, music theory, and composition. Children meet in small groups, in their own age category, once a week for an hour accompanied by an adult (parent, grandparent or caregiver) who participate in the program.
MYC builds a solid foundation of understanding and enjoyment of music. Singing together creates a special bond. Keyboard playing and rhythm ensembles nurture team skills. Creative movement develops individual expressiveness. Music reading and theory are reinforced with group activities and with colourful, hands-on materials. Composing integrates aural and written skills and gives children a sense of ownership.
Discover the happy habit of making music!
All students are encouraged to explore music in all styles including classical, jazz, pop and current new music by contemporary composers.
Each student follows their own program of study which may include performance ensembles, theoretical or historical studies, examinations or composing.
Students may choose to work towards the completion of practical piano exams, participation in competitions and recitals, obtaining high school music credits, or towards entrance to music programs at colleges or universities.
The goals for each student are established each Fall and assessed throughout the year.
To supplement piano studies, this studio runs educational clubs, challenges or events which students may choose to join. It is a great way for students to explore music beyond piano lessons!
A motivational and fun way for students to work through technical exercises for each grade level.
All students start in Grade 1 at yellow then work up to the final “black belt” level. Students perform a final evaluation for each level and receive a certificate.
