Music Classes for Toddlers and Babies at BMS

Come make music together with your toddler or baby at the Brooklyn Music School. Our Early Childhood Music and Movement Classes employ cutting-edge techniques in early music education to encourage social and cognitive development, focusing on building language, visual, physical, and aural skills. 

The music classes are held in the Brooklyn Music School building in Downtown Brooklyn. There are class options for 0-2 year olds and 3-4 year olds, and are taught by highly trained and qualified instructors.

The BMS Early Childhood Music and Movement curriculum combines proprietary approaches to early music education with the best of early education methodologies, and has developed learning benchmarks that reflect consultation with NYC-Blueprint for the Arts. BMS Early Childhood Music lessons develop word, color, and letter recognition to enhance early interpretation of everyday life.

learning Goals of Early childhood music Classes

  • Music Making: through exploration, replication, and observation students can develop their unique voice in music and how it can impact their everyday lives.

  • Music Literacy: developing a working knowledge of music language and applying this knowledge to performance, analyzing and creating music.

  • Making Connections: exposure to common themes and principles of music through historical, social and cultural contexts.

  • Community and Cultural Resources: students can broaden their perspective by working with professional artists and having regular exposure to different musical mediums, creating a fertile ground for students’ music learning and creativity.

  • Careers and Lifelong Learning: students carry physical, social and cognitive skills learned in music, and an ability to appreciate and enjoy participating in music throughout their lives.



BMS Early Music curriculum emphasizes experiential learning – singing, moving, creating, seeing, hearing, touching – in an effort to encourage an empirical connection with music at an early age that will be manifest in lifelong development. At BMS, we believe our curricular mission is best accomplished through concerted efforts between parents and professional music educators as well as constant reflection upon our value for the creative process.
