Music can enrich our lives, decrease stress, boost our mood, and even improve cognitive skills. It’s more than simply music, though, for it offers students a chance to develop their coordination and perseverance, too. Musica Academy has a range of musical programs for kids ages three and up and two locations to choose from, one in Calgary’s NW and one in the SW. Check out their weekly group lessons and private instructions through the internationally renowned Yamaha Music Education System. It is a complete education system with exams, syllabuses, and opportunities to perform locally and internationally. Musica Academy knows how to create just the right tone to help students reach their goals in a fun and artistic environment. This could be the year your kids discover their passion!
Musica Academy is Calgary’s authorized Yamaha School of Music and there are four main characteristics of this unique program: timely education, group lessons, comprehensive training, and a systematic approach. The Yamaha group classes teach basic music knowledge through a “Hear, Sing, Read, and Play” method in a group setting. This group setting offers a wonderful environment for students to learn rhythm and musicianship skills, as they are motivated by their peers. The group lessons encourage creativity and improvisation, as the children inspire each other. Private lessons are also available, especially for intermediate to advanced level students, and the school also offers virtual lessons. All the instructors are highly skilled, well-educated, and extremely dedicated to bringing the best musical education to your child.
Whether you have a preschooler who loves music or an older child who has always wanted to play the guitar, you’ll find something at Musica Academy. Music Wonderland, for preschoolers and their parents, introduces the keyboard to learn the basics of music through singing songs, music appreciation, and rhythmic development. Kids ages 4 – 5 will enjoy the Junior Music Course, a unique four-year keyboard-based program with parented group lessons designed to give your child the best beginning possible for the development of necessary music skills. For school-age kids, consider the Young Musician course. It’s a parented class for 6 to 8-year-old beginners and offers a three-year program with a variety of activities such as ear training, singing, and ensemble playing. Students have lots of fun learning in this small group environment, with friendly duets and jamming every week and exploring the piano and different instruments.
Maybe your child is more interested in strings and strumming. Then you’ll want to check out the 19-week Beginners’ Guitar and Ukulele classes, beginning this winter. Kids will have fun learning and jamming with a small group every week, as they learn the basics of strumming, chording, and picking.
