Early Childhood Music Classes

Early childhood is the most influential time in a child’s life!

Research shows that studying music as a young child builds a solid foundation for school readiness and academic success. Community Arts Academy’s comprehensive, multi-age Early Childhood Music program develops aural skills, motor coordination and self control while instilling a lifelong love of music and the ability to express creatively.  We currently offer classes for ages birth to walking, walking to 36 months, and 4-6 year olds (2 sessions available).
