The Mini Maestros curricula are all locally written, and consist of developmentally appropriate early childhood music and movement classes for children in Athens Ohio, ages newborn through 6. Classes focus on the child's total human development through music, require and encourage the caregiver’s full participation during class and give children the individual attention from loving teachers.
The curricula are divided into three age groups:
Infants - newborn to 2 years
Toddlers - 2 to 4 years
Preschoolers - 4 to 6 years.
Simply Music Piano is an Australian-developed piano and keyboard program. Its approach is ‘playing-based’ as opposed to ‘reading-based’ and is founded on the premise that everybody, without exception, is musical. The Simply Music method begins by translating pieces of music into a unique series of simple concepts that unfold directly onto the keyboard. Beginning students, with no attention on having to read music, are free to relate directly to the piano. Learning to read the music comes later in the program.
The studio offers Simply Music Piano for people of all ages: children, teens, adults and seniors. Group lessons and private lessons are available.
The drop-off program is designed as a musical day-care for children ages 3 to 5. Children will freely participate and explore music while developing skills in all areas of learning through play. Activities include but are not limited to: instrument play, singing, story time, dancing, music listening, arts and crafts.
During the school year, the studio offers pre-school drop-off one morning (2.5 hours) per week.
The drop-off program is extended to three mornings per week during the summer months coinciding with ACSD summer break.
We offer customized birthday parties at the Mini Maestros studio!
