Group Classes For Ages 3 – 5 At Northwest School Of Music

All music instruction begins with basic musical preparation. The Music Explorers curriculum teaches developmentally-appropriate material aligned with the National Music Standards specific to children aged 3-5. And it is FUN! We will sing, dance and play classroom instruments within the child’s comfortable world of colors, shapes and pre-reading symbols.

How it works

Our classes are an 8-week program where 5-10 children meet each week for a 45-minute class

Little ones are encouraged to attend class all by themselves, but parents are always welcome to watch. 

Musical concepts such as steady beat, tone matching, listening skills, coordination, musical vocabulary, singing and playing classroom instruments are all taught by a music education professional.


““When I chose to learn bass, the teacher I was assigned was Matthew. We played together once a week for nearly two years; every time we met in person and every time we got on a skype call, I improved every time.”

— Ian

Who will be teaching the class?

The class will be taught by Amanda Thomas. Amanda first began her journey with music as a junior high student who recognized that no singing opportunities existed in her rural Idaho town for someone her age. She insisted on joining the high school choir with her older sister and formed a life-long love of singing and playing numerous instruments. As an educator, Amanda believes in loving the process and making learning a life-long joy. Amanda’s approach blends theory, aural skills, music history, and movement to create a strong foundation that allows students to move from playing what is on the page to making their own compositions. While Amanda was trained in opera, she takes pride in fostering the individual talents of each student, whether it is in the style of Broadway, Disney, folk, gospel, or country.
