about Longy School of Music:
A wide range of classes are offered for children ages 18 months to 18 years. Music and movement classes dominate the offerings for children under eight. The program taught at Longy is called Dalcroze Eurhythmics for Children; these classes are designed to be taken in succession, and focus on musical learning through the use of body movement.
Instruction in musical instruments is a cornerstone of the Longy preparatory studies program. Children as young as four can begin learning the violin and cello using the Suzuki method. Five year olds can begin exploring the piano. Older children can begin instruction in instruments such as the flute, recorder, saxophone, clarinet, to name a few.
Other opportunities for learning through music come in the form of theory classes, chamber groups, ensembles, choirs, and youth chorales.
The Young Performers Certificate Program is a program for talented musicians ages 8 to 18. Students participate in a full day of Saturday classes designed for those interested in becoming accomplished, well-rounded musicians. Admission is by audition. The vocal and instrumental programs are $1,785-$2,650 per 15-week semester.
