Poco Voce

This non-auditioned program builds musicianship and vocal skills for boys and girls in kindergarten through third grade. Taught in a playful manner, children develop language, motor, creative and social skills while building readiness for more formal music training.

Classes use the First Steps in Music curriculum, a developmentally appropriate and carefully researched music program that engages young students through singing, instrumental exploration, and musical games with celebrated local music teacher, Jennifer Elliott.

Three 8-week sessions are offered on Thursdays from 4:30-5:15pm, with parents invited to the final class of each session for an "Informance." Additional sessions may be added on Saturdays based on enrollment and interest.

  • Fall: October 18 - December 13
  • Winter: January 10 - February 28
  • Spring: March 14 - May 2

Tuition is $150 per session, and need-based scholarships are available. For more information, please contact Info@WestrickMusic.org or 609-688-1888.
