"Mini" instrument classes 4 - 6 years old
All of our "Mini" classes are taught in one of our spacious classrooms in our Laval location. Parents are encouraged to attend all classes with their child in order to assist with home practice. An instrument is necessary to support good progress and home practice. While some classes may supply the instrument, others may ask that it be owned by the family prior to the start of classes. The cost of learning materials used, excluding the instrument, is included in the session fees. These 45 minute classes take place on a weekly basis in a bilingual French/English setting and given by one of our highly qualified teachers.

This weekly, 45 minute class introduces little ones to the ukulele. In a fun, interactive class where parents are strongly encouraged to assist, children learn music basics on the ukulele. Note reading and playing, basic chords and rhythm patterns and group music is taught. Starting with the ukulele is a great choice for the future guitar student who is not quite big enough yet to hold a guitar and practice without feeling uncomfortable. This class is for 4-6 year-olds. The class is given in a small group setting of 3-6 children and their parent. Reviewing at home is a must. Due to the low cost of ukuleles, the instruments are owned by the family and may be purchased at Laval Musique before or at the first class.
Fridays - 6 pm
It is with a weekly 45 minute class that these little singers learn the basics necessary to become a singing sensation. Posture, breathing, vocalizes through nursery rhymes and an age-appropriate repertoire are on the menu. In a small group of 3-6 children, these young students learn basic music notation and note singing (solfeggio) along with fun music games where music notions are applied. Is your 4-6 year old the next Celine Dion? Seeing that everyone is born with a voice, no further instrument is needed for the class.
Saturdays - 1 pm
Many children start with the piano as their first instrument. Laval Musique in Vimont offers a weekly 45 minute group lesson for young piano beginners that are 4-6 years old. These classes teach children to recognize the keyboard keys and identify the music notes that represent them while also learning about rhythm and pulse. A parent attends class with the child so that they can learn how to help at home for practice. Children learn to play the piano with the help of note reading and ear training. The students develop a longer attention span and gain more self-confidence as they progress throughout the lessons. Instruments are provided in class but the family must own one at home for home practice.
Saturdays - 11:30 am
The eternally classic violin is the feature in this 45 minute weekly class for little ones aged 4 - 6 years old. Accompanied by their parents, these beginner students learn the notes and techniques used to play the violin. Children learn to follow a musical score and create wonderful music through the use of their instrument. There is a maximum of 6 students per class to insure a high teacher/student ratio. Instrument rental is included in the session fees for the first session however a $150 deposit is needed to bring the instrument home. The deposit will be returned at the end of the session when the instrument is brought back to the school.
