At Cascade School of Music, we’ve designed a robust collection of music educational opportunities which provide the means to become a well-rounded musician.
There are no shortcuts in this endeavor. To make progress, a student must develop patience, perseverance, the ability to focus, and the willingness to defer gratification. We are building life-long, well-rounded musicians who make music because it is a joyous, uplifting, satisfying pursuit.
Our programs are an integrated progression of classes, lessons, and performances, beginning with early childhood and culminating in adulthood.
Kindermusik - Early Childhood
Cascade School of Music utilizes the Kindermusik curriculum. Kindermusik is an internationally-acclaimed program for early childhood music. Led by our skilled educators, Kindermusik's research-based programs will enhance your child's development and instill a lifelong love of music. We offer the full range of Kindermusik classes so you can engage when the time is right for your family.
The Enrichment classes at Cascade School of Music emphasize musical skill development that will enhance formal instrumental study. Our instructors use a wide array of classroom materials and/or instruments — both pitched and non-pitched—along with movement (in some classes) to create inspiring, fun and engaging classes.
The ultimate purpose of the Music Enrichment Programs at Cascade School of Music is to grow the gifts and talents of students, and help foster their love for music.
Curriculum builds throughout the term, inspiring a lifelong appreciation of music and giving children the foundation they will need to enjoy success in private instrument and vocal instruction. Keeping a steady beat, playing instruments, dance, creative movement, singing, harmonic accompaniment and improvisation are all building blocks in the creation of this solid musical foundation. Through these rich, interactive classes, students discover their own creativity and the joy of making music with friends!
