Early Childhood Music & Keyboard Classes

All children are innately musical. Using the internationally acclaimed Musik Garten curriculum, our early childhood group classes lay a solid aural foundation and follow a developmentally appropriate pathway to musical literacy. Musical concepts along with tonal and rhythm patterns masked in play begin in the first class. Educational tips, along with a take-home CD and parent book, make for a positive music experience in and outside of music class. Each session we sing, build community, dance, and play with rhythm sticks, egg shakers, drums, multi-cultural instruments, scarves, resonator bars, rainbow ribbons, and hoops. We listen to recorded music of many styles and countries and participate in guided movement and listening activities.
Keyboard Classes: Through the variety of activities in each class the children become independent musicians. They have both a love of music and a love of specific repertoire. In addition to playing the keyboards, the children will be involved in drumming and dancing to nurture their rhythmic development, singing to nurture their tonal development, and echoing patterns to nurture their aural development, as well as composing and musical dictation activities that lead the children to musical literacy. Those who enroll in this 3 year program have a solid foundation to continue on in piano or any instrument they choose.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The best way to learn an instrument is with a supportive and encouraging teacher, where students advance at their own pace in one-on-one instruction. Apple Tree Arts teachers offer lessons to students from age 8 - adult in the following instruments: Piano, Guitar, Violin, Viola, Flute, Clarinet, Brass, Cello, Saxophone, and Voice. Violin lessons are available to children as young as four years old.
We also offer music workshops, including composition, vocal intensive programs and group piano for adults.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The theater combines a multitude of talents for students to cultivate and display: acting, singing, dancing and creating sets, props and costumes. Allowing students to explore and experience all of these areas creates an appreciation and understanding of what theater is about. At Apple Tree Arts our theater arts programs are developed with this philosophy in mind.
We also offer improvisational and creative expression programs.
