Join our ever-growing family of all ages and levels to discover the very best art and kids music lessons in North Vancouver.
Music education for children is proven to benefit early development in more ways than one. For children as early as two and well into the teenage years, involvement with music:
Mi Fa Music & Art School offers small class sizes where children participate in group activities and actively play with instruments. Our instructors use a blended approach of proven pedagogies, such as the Suzuki Method, Orff, and Kodály solfège, to focus on listening, singing, and rhythmic skills. These classes prepare childen to transition to private lessons in order to focus on individual instruments, such as the piano, guitar, or violin.
This class is for toddlers who are ready to explore the essential elements of rhythm, musical direction, dynamics, and tempo through active participation in musical group activities. Through small class sizes, our instructors guarantee a high level of care and attention. Children learn the xylophone as their primary instrument, in addition to other percussion instruments, in the beginning of their musical journey.
For those continuing to build on their musical experience, or for those just starting, this class expands upon rhythm, song, other musical instruments, movements, and improvisation. Along with the xylophone as, children begin singing solfège and in the children’s choir while also exploring songwriting and identifying different musical genres.
For our After School and Daycare programs, a Mi Fa instructor travels to your child’s school or daycare to provide on-location instruction, either once the school day is done or during daycare time. Please contact us to see whether we currently offer this service to your child’s school or daycare, or if you wish to start.
Bands and ensembles are opportunities for students to take their talents to the next level. Playing with others improves musicianship in all areas and allows students to enjoy the music they make. As a milestone to work toward, school-wide recitals are the perfect chance for students to share their music with friends and family.
The best way to find out is to try. Your instructor at Mi Fa will help you find the best kids music class for your child. Because we focus on letting the kids have fun in our group classes, children are usually very excited to return.
While there are always exceptions, we strongly recommend group classes for children five and under. For older children, individual lessons are usually more appropriate.
Please contact us to inquire about After School and Daycare programs. If your school or daycare hasn’t connected with us yet, we’re motivated to collaborate!
Our instructors are happy to talk with you further about kid’s music classes.
From 2 to 92, it’s never too early―or too late―to play and enjoy music. Mi Fa is a community where you’ll find like-minded students and experienced instructors who will take your musicianship to the next level and celebrate your progress. For music performance, our job is to redefine what you consider possible, either for yourself or your child. Make the music you dream of making.
