Ava Droski - "Little Beats" classes/ piano (5+)

Ava Droski – “Little Beats” classes

Here at On the Off Beat, our qualified and experienced teachers prepare toddlers and early childhood students for private lessons with our Little Beats classes. In these classes, students learn the rudimentary and fundamental concepts of music that will ensure a fluid transition into private instruction beginning at age 5+. Students learn the essential concepts of rhythm, beat, pitch identification, tempo, dynamics, and musical articulation with fun and exciting stories, games, and activities.

Our approach for Little Beats is inspired by the Orff Schulwerk method, allowing students to learn music through the natural aspects of play. Activities include active participation in singing, movement, stories, and playing instruments that permits a fun and hands-on learning environment. Our teachers allow the students to facilitate each and every class and build lessons upon the aspects of play that the students demonstrate during class time. Our goal with Little Beats is to foster and nurture your child’s natural creativity, individuality, and imagination. Little Beats will prepare your child for a long-lasting and flourishing music education with On the Off Beat.

Can I try a lesson first? 

We do offer trial classes for the first two weeks of the session. If there is room in the class you can sign up for a trial class the day of or the day before the class is scheduled for. Payment for the class is required up front.

Cancelling Classes:

“Little Beats” Classes are booked and paid for in advance and cannot be reschedule for any reason by the student. If a student misses a class the class will not be rescheduled and payment will not be credited.

Parental attendance:

Parents are welcome to attend the classes for the first few weeks. Classes are ideally intended for kids only as this creates a healthy, positive atmosphere for the children both socially and musically. If you’d like to attend the first few classes until your child feels comfortable going in on their own you’re more than welcome.
