For generations now, music has been a big part of our family. Having my kids learn about music and taking piano lesson is very high on my priority list. Music lessons come before any other extra-curricular activity. My neighbor introduced me to a music program last fall. I had never heard of it before, but it’s actually been around for a while.
Let’s Play Music is a great program to teach young children about music. It is essentially a preschool class all about music. It is a 3 year program.
From the their website:
“The curriculum is organized into three sequential years. The first year, we use engaging games and songs and incorporate Tone Bells to teach staff awareness and rhythm reading skills. The second year, we transfer these skills to playing the piano where we also learn chord notation, intervals, and harmonic improvisation. By the end of the third year, students are playing piano at an intermediate level, transposing music, composing their own music, sight-reading music, and are prepared to excel in further private piano instruction.”
This has been a perfect fit for my 5 year old. He is loving it! For his birthday last month he was so excited to get his very own autoharp! I am so lucky to have a neighbor that teaches Let’s Play Music. We are looking forward to what we learn in the 2nd year.
For more information see Alicia’s Blog. She is registering students now for fall classes.

that looks like an amazing program! it seems that there is no one doing that in our tri state area (Illinois, Iowa, Missouri) and i’m about as musically inclined as a fish 🙁 maybe i can pass the site around someone will take and interest in it.
Thank you for sharing, I have never heard of this fun music program before. I hope to get my kids started soon.
I have not been visiting this site lately. Was here the last few days and didnt left a comment. I check back again and found more great insights both from you and the guest comments as well. Excellent Post. Keep up the good work! I have bookmarked this site 🙂
Hi! I’m thinking of enrolling my daughter this upcoming year (she’ll be in 1st grade). Can you give me any more information about this program. Thanks so much!
