Welcome to The Music School of San Mateo, a joyous integration of music and movement for children from twelve months through sixth grade, taught by our well-trained and enthusiastic staff. Since 1983 children have been participating in this unique educational program.
We believe that children learn best by active play: clapping, singing and chanting, drumming a beat, finding a melody on a xylophone, moving and dancing, and by playing rhythmic, singing and theory games.
As your child matures, subsequent levels of instruction grow more complex and varied. Each level is designed for the age and abilities of your child. Classes are small. This is where we differ from other programs in this area.
Our well-trained and enthusiastic staff is committed to this active, well-planned approach to music education. Classes are small so that Music School instructors have the opportunity to know and to work effectively with individual students.
The Music School, located in the Educational Building of the Congregational Church of San Mateo, is non-sectarian -- we do not teach religion.
