Our Music goal is to provide complete musicianship and instrumental learning while nurturing our students to apply their music training to their personal growth, development and their everyday life as a whole.
Our Dance goal is to provide a foundation program for our young children to explore the world of dance before they are ready for more enhanced dance training later in their life.
Following our holistic concept in Music, Dance and Arts Education, we nurture our students in various comprehensive ways.
We believe that students learned best using an approach where students can create a strong foundation in music, such as areas of performance, ensemble playing, ear training, sightreading, theory and other aspects of musicianship. Our own European artistic inspired pedagogy approach - MuseKids Musica Program Curriculum, and Music for Young Children Program contains elements to cover various music disciplines using our complete education pedagogy concept.
Students are not just learning how to play a few music pieces here at our academy. Our holistic approach nurtures our young ones to become proficient in music playing, performing, application theory and musicianship. Our teachers are directly coached by our founder Ms. Jessica Yuen, with continuous professional development throughout the year. Teachers are RCM certified teachers or musician with music degree/diploma or junior teacher who is working towards their RCM teacher certification or music degree. Our Group Piano teacher are all MYC level certified and mentored individually by our founder
Adult learners are welcome, at any age or level, given that you have the love for creating music.
We believe that young babies and young children should have a chance to explore the world of music and movement using foundation dance and movement choreography and enhance their interest and development at a young children.
Ms. Jessica tried to find a program that fits for her young daughter in 2021 and further discover a gap in most dance program in the city do not offer dance program for children before school age. Our little movers program was the motivation for Ms. Jessica and her daughter to discover the importance of parented- dance class and the joy of dancing together at a young age.
Offering community arts class since 2006, we have our master artist Mark who works wells with us for numbers of years. Our arts students are mostly from our music program, looking to enhance their performing arts development with additional visual arts training with us.
