Music Classes & Lessons - The Stage New Westminster

Music Classes

All of our early childhood movement & music classes for babies, toddlers & kids include the world renowned Musikgarten curriculum to encourage music literacy and appreciation from infancy.  If you want to create an appreciation for music, movement, and all things creative in your child there is no better program, and no better time to start!  Please see below for our selection of music and movement classes for babies, toddlers and kids ages 3-7.

Baby Music Discoverers

  • Age: 0-18  Months
  • Length of class: 45 minutes
  • Location: Lorne Street Studio

Play musically with your baby through bouncing and rocking songs, wiggle and peek-a-boo games, dancing, moving and singing. Musical play activities are designed to increase your child’s curiosity about music, to develop listening skills and a sense of beat, and to establish the foundation for singing and musical thought. Also included in this class are infant massage techniques and baby sign language to encourage baby/caregiver bonding and communication. There is no better time to introduce your child to music than in the brief but important infancy stage.

Preschool Music Adventurers

Celebrate your child’s love of nature and growing independence through activities which focus on the seasons of the year. Classes are designed to build attention and self expression and include singing, poetry, moving, focused listening, musical games, musical instruments, and creative storytelling. This program begins to develop strength throughout the body, encouraging whole body awareness, which is a perfect segue into dance classes. Using our dramatic games we also incorporate emotional awareness and development. These classes remain a favourite in our satellite schools as they progress as stories from start to finish. These classes are perfect for children who are just beginning to establish social groups. Parents do not attend these classes but will often be invited in to see what we've been working on.

Primary Musical Theatre

  • Age: 5-7 Years
  • Tuition: $62.50/month (4 months) or $250 total
  • Length of class: 60 minutes
  • Location: Lorne Street Studio

Primary Musical Theatre includes singing, creative as well as structured movement, playing instruments and ensemble work, ear training and guided listening. This developmentally sound approach to music literacy builds symbolic thinking, concentration, memory and self expressions. Students begin to work with written musical patterns. Because of Musikgarten’s whole body approach to music learning, beginners as well as those entering from our Preschool Music Explorers program will all feel successful in mastering our level 1 skills. This year focuses on your child’s fascination with nature and the community they are living in. Our semesters' themes include “My Home Place” and “Woodlands”. The themes allow us to create stories and dramatic play around the animals and activities we find in our take home materials. Each theme introduces students to the sounds of orchestral instruments individually and then in the context of an ensemble. Such a listening foundation will lead to long-term success with music reading in future classes.
