Play-a-Story ages 4-6

Play-a-Story is a musical journey in which you and your child travel through a storybook world. It uses the piano as its mode of travel, creating sounds, melodies, harmonies and rhythms to express the story… literally, students create their own musical soundtrack. Using the piano, students learn to interpret mood, color and nuance as the story unfolds. Play-a-Story teaches this by providing a foundational, systematic and creative experience that harnesses children’s intuitive, musical appreciation and interpretation.

In the world of Play-a-Story, every imaginative thought, every emotion and every dream is an opportunity to express ourselves musically. In this world, musical self-expression is our language… a language far more profound, intuitive and descriptive, far more meaningful and pure than any other.Every student is immersed in the culture of a world that believes that music has the power to emerge naturally from within. The journey begins before students ever learn to play another composer’s music; they begin with the opportunity to discover their own musical ‘story’.

At the early age of 4 to 6 years, students are immersed in a culture that believes that music has the power to emerge naturally from within. The journey begins before students ever learn to play another composer’s music; they begin with the opportunity to discover their own musical ‘story’.

As well as carefully structured and engaging lessons with fully trained Teachers, students are provided with beautiful print, audio and video Student Home Materials. More than just accessories, these materials provide the environment in which your child explores musical stories each day.
