Music for Young Children
Music for Young Children's network of 900 teachers across three continents awakens an insatiable thirst for knowledge in youth via brain-building music programs. Children and their parents come together to share a fun, fruitful learning experience during MYC's signature classes, where they plunge hand-in-hand into the world of music theory by playing keyboards, creating movements for lyric-heavy songs, and sight-reading compositions. During group exercises, children learn how to arrange notes on a piece of sheet music to indicate repetition and express their angst about finishing their vegetables at the dinner table.
MYC also gives youngsters the opportunity to show off what they've learned with its annual International Composition Festival, where pint-sized composers representing regions throughout the globe compete to see who has the most impressive original composition.
