Music Discovery Program

Discover 8 Instruments in 8 Weeks!

We know that choosing an instrument can be a tough decision, for both kids and parents. That's why in our Music Discovery Program, we provide the opportunity to try out a different instrument each week. Children between the ages of 6 to 9 can feel the vibration of a stringed instrument, experience the satisfaction of pressing keys or test the simplicity of a shaker. This will all lead to students learning the Piano, Singing, Drums, Hand Percussion, Ukulele, Classical Guitar, Electric Guitar, and Recorder.

Over 8-weeks, our multi-instrumentalist instructors will guide your child through the basics of each instrument, its range of tones and physical aspects, along with engaging facts and games. By the end of the program, your child will have a basic understanding of how to play a simple tune, rhythm, or melody on each instrument. More importantly, they will leave with a passion for which instrument they want to pursue further. Contact us for the next Music Discovery Program start date.

While we can't promise to create an Andrés Segovia or John Williams in a week, we can ensure each student leaves with more than they started with. For example, students will learn the classical guitar's strings, soundhole, and fingerboard, how to play basic chords, and a simple tune.

Week 7: Electric Guitar

As they shred and slash away, they will start to understand the different sounds the electric guitar can produce and how to play a simple riff.

Week 8: Recorder

Learn the Recorder in Week 8 of the Music Discovery Program at Cosmo School of Music

In the final Week 8 of camp, students will learn to play the recorder, gaining an understanding of its parts, including the mouthpiece, finger holes, and body. We love the recorder because it's a simple, direct melody instrument, making it the perfect instrument for young learners. It's possible, with good Cosmo teaching, to get a good sound out of the recorder quite quickly. At end of this week, students get to take home the recorder provided to them!
