Music for Young Minds (MFYM), 10-week session​​s

Young child beats a drum.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​Children and one caregiver participate in a variety of classroom activities to develop basic musical skills!​ The caregiver stays in class and participates with their child.

Activities include:

  • ​Singing
  • Chanting
  • Dancing and Movement
  • Playing Instruments​
  • ​And more!

In addition to in-class activities, we highly encourage music exploration in the home! Those who register will be given information on how to apply class materials at home!

All of our Lead Teachers are certified in Early Childhood Level 1 through the Gordon Institute of Music Learning, and are currently Music Education majors at the University of Delaware. All classes are held in the Amy E. DuPont Music Building on the University of Delaware campus. ​​​

Sibling P​​olicy

In order to control class size, siblings are welcome to attend their brother's or sister's classes only if they are registered. Siblings may be registered for a flat fee of $75 per semester.

Scheduling Not​e

We anticipate there being two sections of each MFYM class: Section 1 at 9:30am and Section 2 at 10:30am. Section 2 is only offered as overflow after Section 1 reaches capacity. It is very likely that Section 1 will reach capacity early on - register early if you prefer the first time slot!

If you have a specific request for a section, please email: communitymusicschool@udel.edu. Requests can not be guaranteed but we will try our best to accommodate.​

Hands on Music: 4 1/2 years - 6 years

This class will continue a child’s musical development by bridging the gap between informal and formal music learning and preparing them with the aural foundation for instrumental instruction. Teachers will provide instruction on beat competency in various meters through the use of rhythmic poems/chants and instrument playing. Teachers encourage free movement through creative movement activities and we work on the development of listening skills. Children will also learn to develop and expand their singing voice through the exploration of music in various genres. Hands on Music provides the opportunity for further instrument exploration, such as tone bars! They will be given both individualized and class instruction while learning musical skills and most importantly, having fun!
