Our Music Programs in Shaker Heights

Jonathan at Musicologie JuniorMusicologie Junior

Musicologie Junior is a group class for toddlers and their parents, guardians or caretakers. At each 40 minute class, we’ll sing songs, move our bodies, dance to different styles of music, read sing-along books, and play lots of musical instruments while your child reinforces her naturally-developing senses of rhythm, melody, rhyme, speech, and movement! We’ll incorporate methods from Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Orff. Ages 0-5.

What to Expect

Instruments We Teach in Shaker Heights

Piano Lessons

Piano is a great instrument to start your musical journey. Because it’s visual and linear, it’s the simplest way to learn the building blocks of music. For young beginners, we usually recommend piano as a starting place.

Frequently Asked Questions About Musicologie Cleveland Heights

What is Your Teaching Philosophy?
Music is a critical part of human experience. It enriches everyone's life and can be taught and enjoyed at any age. We believe in nurturing the innate curiosity that everyone in born with, empowering our students to achieve their musical goals. Learning music makes life more enjoyable. It can be a relaxing break from busy life. For young beginners, including infants and toddlers, it's an important component of emotional and mental development. Music is truly for everyone, at every level of playing or singing, and we want to help you make music a deeper part of your life.
What Curriculum Do You Use?
We have two guiding principles: First, you'll stay more engaged by learning music you love. Second, you'll grow faster by using what you've learned in lessons through performing. We'll take traditional method books like Suzuki, Alfred's, Faber, etc., and combine that with contemporary music you're excited about with the goal of performing in one of our ensembles, group classes, or at one of our concerts.

Performing is encouraged as a way to develop your skill, but it's always optional.
What Ages Do You Teach?
We teach all ages. We have a toddler group class for ages 0-5 called Musicologie Junior. We start private lessons around 5 and teach lots of adults as well.
Do I Need My Own Instrument?
Not for your first lesson. We have instruments at our studios you can use for the first few lessons. But after that you'll want to get your own instrument for practice at home. Your teacher will help you pick out the right one. We also have open practice hours so you can come in and use instruments and practice rooms at Musicologie during the week.

If you do have your own instrument, you should definitely bring it with you, as long as it's easily portable - leave your piano and drums at home 🙂
