Music FUNdamentals

It’s never too early to begin learning about and making music!

Join us as we explore music together in these engaging classes for our youngest students. Classes, taught by certified music educators, provide a nurturing environment for children as they sing, move, listen, and play instruments while building the foundation for future music making and appreciation.

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.

Musical adventures await your young child as we explore the world of music and develop basic skills during this pivotal point in music education. This class is appropriate not only for children just getting started or continuing with our other music classes, but to also to enhance basic skills for those already involved in instrumental study. This is a highly active class involving singing, playing instruments, and moving as well as basic note reading skills and learning about the world of music.


FEE for Music FUNdamentals classes: $20 registration fee. $504* yearly tuition, payable in quarterly installments of $126.

For students enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein, tuition is $252, payable in quarterly installments of $63 for one Music FUNdamentals or Children’s Dance class. (Fees are as of Fall 2021.)
