The rewards last a lifetime!

We invite your 5-7 year old son to join Ragazzi’s fun, active class for beginning musicians. It’s also a great entry-point into Ragazzi’s program. Taught by Ragazzi’s experienced and skilled faculty, this class is limited to 12 registrants per section.

Music and Movement meets weekly. Parents are invited to attend the final class with their son to participate in some of the activities learned during the sessions. Our engaging teacher has a masters degree in choral conducting and is credentialed as an elementary classroom teacher. She uses a child-developmental approach to reinforce musical concepts through entertaining games, rhythmic movement, songs, and exercises.

Fall Tuition: $264 for 12 weeks*. Every Monday from September 18 – December 4. Each additional brother is $238. Class is held as usual the Monday before Thanksgiving. No refunds after the second class.

*Fall 3:15 class fees will be $22 per session, prorated to account for a later start date, which will be announced when the waitlist is full enough to open the class.

Ragazzi’s Music and Movement class is the first step to becoming a Ragazzi boy! It’s designed for boys who are 5-7 years old with little or no previous musical training.  It’s perfect for younger boys who are eager to sing in a small group, but aren’t ready for the almost 2-hour rehearsals in Ragazzi’s beginning-level performance program.

  • Non-auditioned class (just sign up)
  • Once a week on Mondays from 4:15-5pm (plus a 3:15-4pm class if demand is sufficient)
  • Class size is limited to 12 students
  • Fall session is 12 weeks, September – December. No class on Halloween if it falls on a Monday.
  • Spring session is 15 weeks, late January – May. No class President’s week or Ragazzi’s Spring Break

Research shows that a child’s intellectual and social development is enhanced through music education. Give your son the gift of improved academic performance, social skills, memory, work habits, creativity and self-esteem.
