Tate’s School starts music education even earlier

Community

A new program has started at Tate’s School in hopes of teaching kids about music from an early age.

The program, which kids can participate in starting from just several months old, even before they can walk, aims to teach them the basics of music.

Along with those skills, the school hopes the kids pick up other abilities they can carry throughout life. 

“They have gained some confidence, some awareness of pitch and rhythm,” says Erin Archer, director of strings at Tate’s School. “What’s coming up next, that’s the excitement they see.”

The program not only gets kids singing, counting and recognizing different sounds, but also coordination with playing instruments like the xylophone and glockenspiel.
