Piano classes for Everyone
Music for young children group Program (2-12 Years old)
In March of 1980, Frances Balodis sat at her kitchen table in Dartmouth Nova Scotia with a clear goal in mind:
To create a program that would fulfill the need for quality piano classes as part of music education for young children.
Taking the experience from her education and 21 years of teaching, Frances along with her husband Gunars, set out to craft a comprehensive music education program tailored to the strengths and abilities of young children, encompassing interactive piano classes.
Today, MYC boasts a global community of over 24,000 students across 3 continents, guided by a network of 900 dedicated teachers offering expert piano classes. The curriculum has evolved over time to ensure alignment with conservatory standards and the dynamic music industry, all while maintaining the core belief that music is a lasting gift that every child and family can access through quality piano classes.
Through it all, the core principles and dream has remained the same:
Music is a gift that lasts a lifetime, and that all children and families deserve quality music education

Sunshine Program (3-4 years old)
This program, for three and four year old beginners includes large muscle experiences in beat and rhythms as well as fine motor experiences in rhythm instrument ensemble playing. By the end of the first year, Sunshines are playing in C major and middle C positions and are reading from the staff. Pre-reading experiences – such as like and different sorting, looking for patterns with colorful visual aids, gluing and coloring -- are part of the program.
Sunbeams Program (5-6 years old)
The program for kindergartens and first graders provides “big kid” lyrics to introduce concepts, finger numbers and keyboard geography. Songs and games are used to encourage and reinforce listening.
Moonbeams Program (7-12 years old)
For the older beginner, ages seven through nine, the program lasts three years. Our Moonbeams want “quick results” and the songs, ensembles and keyboard repertoire are designed to support their growing sense of independence. The listening activities for this age group keep the “ears open” even as reading becomes the primary focus for gathering information.
