Music for Little Mozarts

AMUSE's piano program for the very young child (ages 4-6) teaches the fundamentals of playing piano in the ways in which children learn best: through singing and moving.

Our program is based on "Music for Little Mozarts," an award-winning series from Alfred Publishing Company, supplemented by other ensemble and repertoire materials.
