Early Childhood Music

Early Childhood Music

Every day, you give them the world. At Powers, we'll help them expand it.

As parents and caregivers, you have a tough job. Giving your children everything they need to reach their potential is a constant challenge.

Smart parents choose Powers because they know they can trust us
to help reinforce the things that matter most, like confidence, dedication, and character. Our community of faculty, staff, and families will work together with you to nurture and guide your kids to be their best selves.

Of course, they'll get a high-quality music education too.
We believe strongly that music is a crucial part of growth and development. Our early childhood music department builds the foundation for a lifetime of music and art appreciation, and teaches children valuable skills that will help them in school and any activity as they continue to grow and learn. Our teachers are trained to provide the best instruction possible and a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere, and to give you the tools to continue encouraging your child and having fun at home once class is over.

Trust us - this is one parenting decision you don't have to stress over.
