Early Childhood Music

Conservatory Kids classes provide a nurturing and enjoyable first music experience for children ages 3 months to 6 years. Classes are grouped by age and developmental stages. All classes are taught by a faculty of professional musicians and music educators.

As children take their first steps in music, rhythmic movement and in tune singing are reinforced. The Conservatory Kids program leads naturally to further exploration of pitch, timbre, notation, and the instruments of the orchestra, and provides a solid foundation for private lessons.

For information or registration for private lessons: call 301-320-2770

Please note: $13 Glen Echo Park class registration fee applies to classes.
