MUSIC FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
GROUP PIANO PROGRAMS
Example of a student's route in the MYC program: if your child is 5 or 6 years old, we would recommend registering them into Sunbeams 1 (if you are unsure about what level to register your child in, please contact the studio). Once they have completed Sunbeams 1, they would then enter Sunbeams 2, Sunbeams 3, then Moonbeam 2, and Moonbeam 3. Once they have completed Moonbeam 3, students have the option of continuing with group classes with RCM Musica 2, or in private lessons.
Students with previous experience: Placement and cost to level 2 & 3 will depend upon assessment. Please inquire with the academy about level 2 & 3 pricing.
