Covid-19 Update

In light of new directives from Alberta Health, the Government of Alberta, and Mount Royal University, the Conservatory has made the difficult decision to postpone all of our Early Childhood music classes until January 2021. We are committed to providing an exceptional education in music and creativity and this in turn necessitates that instructors and students meet in-person. As soon as it is safe to resume in-person lessons we will notify all parents and in the mean time we eagerly anticipate the return of students and the opporutnity to create music together.

We hope to see you again soon! 


Discovering Music (formerly called Kodály Level Two) classes create a playful atmosphere where children are actively engaged in a  wide variety of musical experiences. The program nurtures the development of the child's own instrument, the singing voice, as well as the basics of music literacy (beat, rhythm, melody, and harmony) through a rich repertoire of traditional folk songs, singing games and the use of rhythm instruments. 

The Discovering Music program, through its musical experiences, helps to build confidence and self-esteem in each child. It fosters a love of music, language, and learning which will last throughout a child's life.

There are 14 classes per term and each class is 45 minutes in length. Classes are kept small in order to provide more individualized attention and a flexible learning environment.

Since parental involvement is an essential component of the program, they will join their children for the final 10 minutes of each class and are encouraged to share musical activities at home. Children have weekly take-home activities to reinforce the lessons. This course is designed for children ages 5 and 6 years.

Instructors:  Suzanne Derbecker, Amanda Massey, Judit Szanto, Sylvia Zavzavadjian, Barbara Smith
