Introduce your little ones to the benefits of the performing arts with the Early Childhood Program at the Colburn Community School of Performing Arts!

These classes have been very important for my daughter’s upbringing and development. I don’t speak a lot of English, so the classes are a great way for my daughter to learn English words through music. Juana Sajbin, mother of Yuliana Gomez-Sajbin (pictured)

Colburn’s Early Childhood Program

The Community School of Performing Art’s Early Childhood Program formally introduces babies and toddlers as young as 7 months to the wonders of music and the performing arts. Our classes target specific age groupings to best capitalize on students’ capabilities as they explore music, theory, voice, movement, and drama. Parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in the classes with very young children. Advancement is based on skill development so students gain confidence as they gain abilities.

One of the key benefits of our Early Childhood music classes is that our highly trained faculty help parents identify a child’s special interests and abilities for future class placement. That said, our classes are in demand and can fill up quickly. Wait lists may form, so we may add classes with demand. Classes are scheduled on weekdays as well as Saturdays and Sundays.
