Enrolling for Fall 2016!

Since 1997, Community Music Center of Boston’s Early Childhood program has invited Boston families to join in the celebration of music and movement. Children explore and discover music through various classes teaching rhythm, song, movement and art. Classes are designed for ages 5 months through 7 years and support the development of cognitive and social skills.  


Fall 2016 session

Classes and MUSIC Instruction for children

Little Notes

(5 months through 2 years)
Using our rich folk tradition of songs, dances, tickles and bounces, these classes actively explore sounds, movement and the world around us with playfulness and joy. Sharing a special musical connection between children and their caregivers, we play, sing and dance using musical instruments and everyday materials. image description

(3  - 4 years)
Fun and interactive music and movement classes for child and caregiver. These classes build on the music fundamentals introduced in our little notes classes and aim to make your child feel comfortable using their voice, body and instruments to produce and experience music. image description

Preparatory String Ensemble

(4-7 years old)
In this ensemble our youngest string players learn the basics of playing in a group, while putting the skills they've gained in Beginning Strings to use with their peers. image description

beginning instruments

(5 through 6 years)
A small group class focused on preparing students for private instruction. Each class is limited to 4-5 students and is designed to train the child’s ear to recognize melodic sounds and rhythm. Students then translate this recognition to their chosen instrument. The students will begin to visually identify notes and play simple melodies. Current offerings: Beginning Piano, Strings, Guitar and Drums, Flute and Voice. image description
