As engaged parents, you strive to give your children opportunities that expand their education and experiences. Exploring academic, athletic, and artistic interests opens doors that allow them to discover lifelong passions.

Music lessons emphasize personal musical development and the joy of belonging to a musical community. Knowing when to start, how to start, where to go, and what activities will be worth your investment can be challenging. Group music classes are a great way to begin or enhance your child's musical journey.

The MIC Campus staff are here to answer any questions you might have about which music classes are best for your child, so don't hesitate to contact us. We can’t wait to welcome you to the musical community at MIC!
