Hoff-Barthelson Music School invites parents of children from 4 months to five years to attend an Open House for its Preschool Music and Movement Programs on Thursday, September 10, from 10 am – Noon at the Music School, 25 School Lane, Scarsdale. There will be a demonstration music class at 10:30 am. This is an excellent opportunity to meet with Hoff-Barthelson’s extraordinary early childhood faculty, parents of current youngsters, and parents of students who have moved on from the Preschool Programs to music lessons and classes at the School.
Start your child on the right note at Hoff-Barthelson Music School, a premier community music school that has been one of Westchester’s most cherished cultural resources since 1944. The faculty strives to instill a life-long love of music in their young students. HBMS preschools acquire a diversity of skills through music: the ability to focus and concentrate, to listen and observe keenly, and to become interested in watching and taking turns with their peers. Nurturing teachers develop their skills in music-making and help children to learn to love and appreciate music.
The HBMS preschool classes are designed to introduce young children to the elements of music in preparation for more formal study. Classes range from parent(or caregiver)/child classes for infants, toddlers, two and three year olds to Getting to Know You: Exploring the Instruments for kindergarteners and recorder and Suzuki lessons and classes for 5-6 year olds.
New this year: Suzuki guitar for 4 years old and up! A great opportunity for young hands to learn chords and strumming.
Aspiring 3-year-old violinists can begin very early Suzuki studies in the HBMS Pre-Twinklers program, before moving on to formal Suzuki training.
