About Music FUNdamentals

It’s never too early to begin learning about and appreciating music! Join us as we explore music together. Classes incorporate the teaching methods of Carl Orff and Zoltan Kodaly, among others, and provide a nurturing environment for both children and adults to listen, move, sing, and play instruments together. Music used for class activities includes a variety of authentic folk songs from different countries.

Classes run the entire 36-week school year, but we do accept new registrations at the beginning of each nine-week quarter and throughout the year. Call (585) 454-4596 to check for openings.
