ACO PARTNERS WITH U OF A, TO BRING AN EXCITING NEW MUSICAL EDUCATION PROGRAM

The Arts Center of the Ozarks in partnership with the Music Outreach Program at the University of Arkansas will be providing a unique music program called “Magic Note Music Studio.”

magicnoteMagic Note Music Studio is a fun early childhood music program based on the belief that every child is musical and able to express him(her)self through music and movement. The program and its philosophy are based on research that underscore the additional benefits of a musical education; that is, music lessons nurture children’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development.  Watch a video of what your child will learn!

From three to seven years of age, your chimusic_movementld can grow with this program, especially developed for them, without pressure to perform, only encouragement to explore, express and discover. You will see a developmental evolution in language skills, emerging literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem and musicality! Children, who “graduate” from this program at age 7, progress easily into private music lessons. A lifelong love of music is also present.

In class your child will sing, play, learn how to use percussion and keyboard instruments, listen to music from various genres, and dance to musical activities specifically designed to stimulate early childhood development.

Classes: 

Music & Movement 3-4 years

Children will feel comfortable using their voice, body and instruments to produce and experience music as they build a strong musical foundation through songs, dance and notation exercises.
