Preschool Music & Movement Class
Fall Session begins September 7th
It's not too late to join - We love being in person again!
A music class just for 4-6 year old girls and boys!
The Phoenix Boys Choir's Minuets class is a pre-choir program for Pre-K, kindergarten and first grade boys and girls. It’s designed for young children with little or no previous musical training. Minuets provides a fun and engaging learning environment to develop a solid foundation in music education for our youngest learners.
Our world-class early childhood music education program helps boys and girls build confidence and grow musically through moving, singing, playing, listening and reading music. Your child will be introduced to music literacy skills and learn beat development. Ms. Mary Price, Phoenix Boys Choir Collaborative Accompanist and a longtime certified elementary school music education teacher, will lead the class in-person. Ms. Price has instructed in the Kodàly method, which is the gold standard instructional method we use to teach basic musical skills.
We offer three 8-week sessions per year. Classes are held on Tuesdays from 5 - 5:30 pm at the Phoenix Boys Choir building located at 1131 East Missouri Avenue, Phoenix 85014. Our building provides a large classroom space allowing for safe social distancing. Masks will be required.
Session One: September 7 - October 26, 2021 - It's not too late to join! Enrollment fee is pro-rated.
Session Two: January 11 - March 1, 2022
Session Three: March 15 - May 3, 2022
The cost for each 8-week session is $96. We look forward to playing and learning music with your child!
"Our 5-year old daughter, Aria, loved Minuets this past season! I watched her go
from a shy singer, to a joyful performer by the end of the eight weeks. The instructor is
warm, engaging, and encouraged her to participate by making the classes fun, inviting,
and age-appropriate. We are still singing some of our favorite tunes and can't wait to
see our friends at the Spring session!” - Andrea Worth, Parent
