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.
Material for the year: $199.00
Registration Fee: $35.00
Supplies & Recital Fee: $45.00
Monthly Tuition: $90.00
(There are 33 lessons in the school year, which runs from September to May/early June. During the year, there are various performance opportunities, including a mid-year gala, and a year-end recital at Arts Commons.)

SUNSHINE 1: 3 & 4 year olds

Music for Young Children is one of the best programs to introduce children to the foundation of music. We provide activities and games to create an enjoyable and positive learning environment. Through group activities such as singing and creative movement, children will develop a special bond with each other and improve on their individual expressiveness.
Solo and ensemble piano playing
Singing together on new concepts
Music reading & theory
Classes are parented, and have a maximum of 6 students per class. Classes run from September to early June.
RCM MUSICA Comprehensive Group Piano Classes
RCM Musica is a piano group approach, continuing the legacy of the Music for Young Children program. RCM Musica further leads students to learn in a group, in fun and interactive ways, while completing the entire RCM requirement for the grade. The program covers repertoire, études, techniques, musicianship, music appreciation, ear training, sight reading, solo & ensemble playing, practical ensemble playing, and theory. The program covers all aspects of piano learning in a progressive way.
