Whether your kiddo confidently belts all the tunes from Frozen, bangs on your pots and pans, or is filled with enough hot air to make a tuba toot, the Kalamazoo Music School truly has something for everyone.
KMS offers virtual lessons in voice & singing, and in-person or virtual lessons in percussion, stringed instruments, woodwinds, piano and brass.
And if your child wants to learn an instrument they don’t have in-house, KMS will rely on its excellent network of local musicians to bring on the perfect instructor for whatever you want to study.
Each student is responsible for providing their own instrument. If your musician doesn’t currently own their instrument of choice, the Kalamazoo Music School can assist. They have a network to help families borrow or purchase instruments.
Undecided on whether the guitar, tuba or trombone is your child’s favorite? No problem. KMS happily accommodates students who change instruments. Discounts are also offered for students who study multiple instruments.
Kalamazoo Music School understands that not everyone learns the same way, and it shows in their approach to teaching. Their programs aim to teach the basic “hard stuff” while also nurturing the natural love of music. This approach produces the boldest, most versatile artists.
And if you’re picturing a stuffy teacher forcing old-timey music on disinterested students, think again. Many of the instructors at the Kalamazoo Music School have a background in improvised and popular music and blend the classics with the creativity found in modern melodies.
Reap the Benefits of Music
If you’re on the fence about adding another activity to your child’s busy schedule, rest assured that music has many positive benefits for children of all ages.
Whether it is tickling the ivories to improve motor skills, learning social interactions by playing an instrument within a larger group, building self-esteem by singing in front of a crowd, or recognizing rhythms as patterns to improve math smarts, music classes through KMS will provide your child with many positive perks.
