Group Music Classes For Kids in West Chester, PA

In addition to private 1-on-1 lessons, we offer several group class options for children at our studio. Kids get the opportunity to explore, have fun, meet new friends, learn some fundamentals, and fall in love with music before starting private lessons.

Find more information about the curriculum in each class, plus the weekly schedules, below.

Music Together Young Learner’s Class

Music Together gives children from birth through the age of five the opportunity to enjoy mixed-age music classes alongside their caretakers. They will learn fun songs, develop a sense of rhythm and melody, use rhythm instruments, be introduced to other instruments, and make friends along the way. Children are encouraged to proceed at their own pace, and this can be a wonderful way to grow a love for music before pursuing formalized private instrument lessons.

Music Together at Florence Phillips Music Studio meets each Thursday at 1PM.

Music Explorers (K-1st Grade)

Kindergarten and 1st grade students will join together to explore and make “tuneful, beautiful, and artful music”–tenets of the world-renowned early childhood music educator John Feierabend and his First Steps in Music curriculum. Students will playfully explore singing, moving, listening, and playing instruments, with a special emphasis on developing the singing voice. The class is non-performing, but will culminate with a time of sharing for parents on the final class evening.

Music Explorers meets on Monday evenings at 6PM and 7PM.

Prelude Singers (2nd - 6th Grade)

This prelude to choir class for second through sixth grade students will join together students of varying abilities and backgrounds to give them a joyful introduction to choral singing. This class will focus on the elements of good singing explored through moving, listening, vocal technique, ear training, beat keeping, introduction to music notation, and choir games. No audition required. The class is non-performing, but will culminate with a time of sharing for parents on the final class evening.

Prelude to Choir meets on Monday evenings at 6PM and 7PM.

“My aspiration is simple: to ensure that my students are well-rounded, independent pianists who both love music and can pursue any genre or discipline that they would like to.”
