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.
