early childhood music at Powers

Early Childhood & Elementary

Parenting is complicated and often stressful. Every day you make choices for your kids to help them be well-rounded, to pursue their talents, to give them a good education, or simply to make them smile.

It’s easy to say yes to an early childhood program, private lessons, or group class at Powers – our fun and educational programs give you the confidence that you’re doing everything you can for your children, both in music and in life. They’ll build language and motor skills, boost confidence and creativity, and gain a deep appreciation for all kinds of music in the world. And it’s fun for parents and caregivers to learn, too!

Your children will learn what music is…

Little ones start in the Music Pups® program to sing, dance, and play with you in a relaxed, judgment-free environment. Next, they’ll move on to Dalcroze Eurhythmics to make their own music, improvise, and learn how music is written.

Then try it on their own…

Does your son or daughter love to sing? Singing for Kids might be your best bet. Is your child showing interest in the piano or keyboard? Piano Powers for Kids classes allow him to learn familiar songs quickly and gain confidence in playing. If you’re familiar with the Suzuki method of learning or would love to connect with a strong community of parents, the Suzuki Musical Kids class might be a great segway into private violin, viola, or cello lessons.

Then pursue what they love the most…

Kids can have fun exploring Ukulele. Belmont Public School students in grades 4-6 will find Saturday Morning Music School an awesome way to keep learning with their classmates. Ready for lessons? Our instructors teach more than 30 instruments, including piano, guitar, violin, voice, cello, flute, and so much more. If your preteen or teenager is comfortable with lessons and is ready to add more, then an ensemble, music theory class, or the Powers Youth Orchestra will help her flourish and grow.

No matter which path you choose, you’ll be giving your young musicians the best foundation for future learning in music or for anywhere life takes them.

Not able to make it to Belmont?

We are now offering classes at the JCC in Brookline! We will be holding two classes, Music Makers for ages 3 through 5, and a fall session of our popular summer program Kids Crescendo for ages 5 through 10. You can learn more about Powers at the JCC here.

A few more reasons that Powers is a great option? 

Friendly, expert instructors, the affordable cost (even for twins!), a convenient location in the heart of Belmont, class and lesson times that work with your schedule, and two parking lots.
