This site is dedicated to children’s music school “Happy Notes.”The school began its existence in 2005 based on the children’s choir “Lomir Zingen” which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2009. At Happy Notes children study the Russian language and literature, become acquainted with the works of Russian writers and poets, and learn how to read and write. To test and reinforce their knowledge of Russian language, our students write vocabulary dictation, perform grammar exercises on selected topics, practice writing from memory, and short compositions. Such assignments expand the ability of the children to intelligently build phrases and sentences, develop oral and written speech, and help in the overall development of our students.
For those interested in playing musical instruments, we offer classes in piano, violin, and guitar. Furthermore, our Music Literature class introduces our students to masterpieces of classical music. For the youngest in our school we provide the class “I, Mom and Music.”
The school is geared for children between the ages of four and twelve years old. Your child will have a unique opportunity to take part in productions of Children’s Musicals: participate in vocal lessons, dancing, and acting. These experiences will help your child in building his or her self-confidence and practice their team-work skills.
The school operates on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. This time frame includes four 45minute lessons and a short break. There are four age groups of up to ten students. Such group formation provides for individual approach toward each child, yet simultaneously allows the child to grow within a team.
