If you’ve ever wanted to plan ahead, this is next year’s schedule of when we’re off and when we’re having recitals. It’s exciting to know what’s coming in the new year- plan to be here where the music doesn’t stop.

November Theme

Welcome to 70s music! If you’re thinking Disco, you’re right on the money. However, there were also other important styles during this decade, including funk, smooth jazz, jazz fusion, soul music, rock, and punk rock.  

For our youngest students, we always have new activities like coloring pages to keep them engaged with musical studies.

For composition, try something fun and unexpected by putting your own spin on that 70s music sound. If you’ve listened to ten or more disco songs and you can’t find your groove, try something else from this amazing decade of music.

For music history, learn all about what made the 70s musical hits that inspired so many musicians past and present. You just might find a new favorite among the myriad hits from this time period.

Happy Halloween, Recital Pictures, and Yes, We’re Open!

It’s been a busy weekend at MTMS! We had our recital. Pictures are on Instagram.

We are open tonight, though we expect a bunch of you might be trick-or-treating. Don’t be afraid to sing your favorite Halloween songs while you’re out, or create your own from well-known tunes.

Speaking of Halloween music, we’ve been having a war at my house. One of my kids is obsessed with Spooky, Scary Skeletons and my other kid is obsessed with the Witch Doctor. It’s a good time to enjoy the music and the holiday.

It’s a Great Time for Lessons!

There’s a convincing body of research that states the best time to immerse your child in music is from birth to age 9. That doesn’t necessarily mean your newborn should be learning guitar, but that parents and communities can improve a child’s musicality.

The goal of lessons at different ages becomes important. Your newborn may want to be swayed in arms and just listen to ambient music. Toddlers are ready for learning rhymes and rhythms, for interacting in groups for both singing and dancing, as well as playing beginning instruments. Given tambourines or clackers, they learn motor skills as well as musical ones.

When they approach ages for lessons, one of the best things a parent or caregiver can do is allow access to music, instruments, and often a child will be ready between ages six and nine to start private lessons. Note: Some kids are ready earlier, and we support that!

How do you know your specific kid is ready to start here? One way is to bring the kid into our school and try a sampler. A more detailed list includes showing interest in an instrument, the child can focus for a period of time appropriate for their age, they know their letters A through G and can count to 10, the child fits the instrument, you can access an instrument and a teacher (chat with us!!), and finally – that the parent or caregiver is ready to give the support to the child for practice and transportation. Ultimately, the children get so much out of their music – it’s time to start now!
