Early Childhood Classes

Director: Ashley Moss Fox, M.M., Michigan State University College of Music

Early childhood music classes at Roberts Community Music School focus on the development of the whole child through playful musical exploration, singing, chanting, movement, listening, and using simple instruments. Each class is designed to meet the needs of the individual child and modifications are built into the curriculum to ensure that every child has the best opportunity to grow.


Musiking with Munchkins: Birth-24 months (with caregiver)

Fall 2022 time: Thursdays 4:30 p.m., Saturdays 9:00 a.m.

Musiking with Munchkins is a ten-week course for children birth through 24 months and their caregivers. In this course, we will sing, chant, move, and play together, exposing your infant or young toddler to a wide variety of music and music concepts. This is a foundation-building class and is very play-based.

Tunes with Tots: Ages 2-4 years (with caregiver)

Fall 2022 time: Thursdays 5:30 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m.

Tunes with tots is a ten-week course for children 2-4 years of age and their caregivers. In this course we will sing, chant, move, play, and explore instruments together, deepening your toddler’s knowledge of music and music concepts. This class continues to develop a foundation that will lead to success in classroom music or beginning instrument classes while providing children with more opportunities for independent music-making.

Tuition: $156 per 12-week term ($10 registration fee)
