MYC has encouraged development in self-discipline, concentration, perseverance, self-esteem, keyboard skills and general music appreciation. I love sharing in the lessons with my daughter. Some weeks it is our only time "alone" together.

I guess what I, as a mother, like about MYC is the continual reinforcement of new material learned through the keyboard, workbook and subtly through games. It is done in a creative way so as not to lose the child's interest. I am very pleased that the child not only does the practical work but also gains theory so as to understand the "why" of what he is doing. I am also pleased that we can share the music experience together.
Richard has not once objected to attending his music class. He enjoys the "fun ways" in which music is presented to him. He also enjoys the contact with his peers. Of late, he has particularly enjoyed the more contemporary music such as "Valentine" and "Rollin' Rock." He also felt important playing a duet with a grown-up."

I feel that this kind of music lesson for a small child is ideal: a small group experience, varied activities, parental participation, a relaxed informal atmosphere for individual performance, highly creative teaching methods and materials

We enjoy all the variety found in the lessons. There is a continual flow from one aspect to another. We enjoy Terri's enthusiasm and her obvious love of music and children. We enjoy going together and Mom being able to help with practice through the week. It's a wonderful program!

Jennifer always enjoys her class. She always comes home feeling very good about herself.

The pacing of the program is great! Short tasks which you change often are perfect for young children (especially mine!). It matches their attention span.

Julia and I both love the choice of music. She really enjoys doing the written work in her "Bright Ideas" book. The "Cool Work" sheets allow her more independence which she likes. It also takes the pressure off of me and we don't have any conflicts over practice. She loves the class games and reward stickers. MYC has helped Julia to achieve a real sense of accomplishment.

MYC is very enjoyable - the kids enjoy being with other kids in this type of learning situation. It is comprehensive and an excellent early program. The younger children reinforce each other to a certain extent. They are able to share a common learning experience in a fun setting - learning almost in spite of themselves. Young children would not, I feel, do well in a stricter, more cut and dried learning situation.
