The Early Childhood Music School (ECMS) is now accepting registrations for the 2018-19 academic year! Classes begin Sept 4th. For more than 28 years, ECMS has been teaching music to children and adults in the greater Williamsburg area. Classes are available for students ages two months through the “young at heart.”
The curriculum is general music education which includes song vocalization, aural listening, poetic speech, verbal and instrumental play, creative movement, and tonal/rhythmic patterns. There is keyboard and guitar instruction for the upper levels. Parents accompany their younger children in the 30-45 minute classes, while the older students typically attend 60 minute classes without. We offer concurrent classes for families with several children so the entire family comes to music class at the same time! Classes are located at Williamsburg United Methodist Church.
ECMS instructors are certified by Musikgarten and the International Early Childhood Music and Movement Association (ECMMA). All classes are developmentally appropriate empowering children with the tools to be successful not only musically, but most of all, developmentally, socially, physically, and emotionally. Through this holistic programming children are offered a nurturing environment to grow a deep love and appreciation for music.
