Have serious fun studying music theory and solfeggio (really!)
Our Music Mind Games® Program is the ideal introduction to the study of music theory for children ages 7–10. Utilizing renowned pedagogue Michiko Yurko’s original, highly successful, world-renowned Music Mind Games® curriculum, these courses are ideal preparatory classes for The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program (RCDMP) and Associate Board of Royal Schools of Music Examinations (ABRSM). The goal of Music Mind Games® is to create a fun and effective class designed to set your young musician on a path of exceptional, comprehensive musical growth.

Who should participate?
Music Mind Games® is appropriate for students enrolled in private instrumental lessons, Suzuki method instruction, performing ensembles at the Mason Gross Extension Division, and those who have not yet begun private lessons. Students will learn basic musical skills (steady beat, rhythm, note values, and names) while having fun and making new friends. The small class size (maximum six students per class) ensures each child receives individualized instruction and develops a firm foundation for musical growth in preparation for private music lessons. We recommended that students have access to a piano or keyboard, or another musical instrument at home for daily practice.
