Music Classes For Preschoolers

Rockness Music offers engaging classes and upbeat songs.

Preschool is a time of various areas of major growth. Children begin assuming personalities and realizing the cause and effects of everyday life.  Preschool aged children are filled with curiosity and energy. That’s where we come it. Our engaging preschool classes and upbeat music grasp their attention satisfying their need for stimulation and intriguing experiences.  The songs and activities in Rockness Music’s  classes for kids offer opportunities for dramatic play and movement which are essential to their blossoming minds.

Although still developing, 3’s & 4’s are very aware of their surroundings and capable of absorbing a good amount of information.  In our mixed-age music classes, they are able to participate with the teacher and give answers to various questions. The children develop strong confidence and ownership of a relationship with music.

At Rockness Music, we believe preschoolers should always have a rockin’ good time while they are learning. Preschool is a time of enormous growth and development – and preschoolers learn best when they are engaged. This is why our interactive preschool music classes offer preschoolers an opportunity to explore and discover, all within a nurturing environment. Our fun classes include drum circles, movement, dancing, dramatic play, scientific discovery, and more!

Music Classes developed by parents, for parents.

Rockness Music was developed by parents for parents. In addition to our research-based curriculum, we have experience as parents. We understand what kids need because we have kids of our own. We bring all the things we have learned as parents into the classroom. We also know what parents want from a music class. You are choosing to spend your time with us, and we understand the importance of making your time with us special and worthwhile.

Music classes for preschoolers


Students are stimulated and fully engaged.

Preschoolers are energetic and lively, so our preschool music classes are designed to get them up and moving. As soon we begin to play our music, preschoolers cannot help but move! Plus, preschoolers will feel safe exploring their curiosities and acting playful in a safe environment. As our classes encourage preschoolers to move and groove, you will get to see their unique personalities starting to form.

Our preschool music classes cover more than music.

Yes, your preschooler will learn to rock at Rockness Music. But your child will also learn far more than music basics. Our preschool music classes are designed to support a child’s development.

Here are some examples of how we cover more than music basics:

  • STEM – In Rockness Music’s music classes for preschoolers, instructors sharpen kids’ math and analytical skills during our syncopated drum circles, Mystery Discovery scientific explorations, and cultural discussions. The curriculum aims to meet STEM academic goals such as cognitive thinking, analytical skills, abstract thought, and intellectual discovery.
  • Language and Literacy – Rockness Music understands the significance of music’s role in language development and early literacy, which is why our curriculum targets these areas. Each class includes musical discovery, imagination, pretend play, and creative expression. Music reinforces memorization through repetitive singing and patterns, which also helps children build their vocabulary.  Plus, our preschool music classes help kids learn to identify and manipulate new sounds.
  • Music and Movement – Studies show preschoolers learn best through play, so we encourage playful movement in our preschool music classes! Everything we do is designed with these early childhood standards in mind. For example, when students hold a drum stick, we are helping them develop fine motor skills. When students get up and move, they are developing gross motor skills. When preschoolers participate in dramatic play, they are learning creative expression.

"As a mother to a VERY active 2 year old, I confess we have struck out at many music classes. It takes a lot to get her into a group activity like this. She enjoyed Rockness Music at her daycare and would sing the songs at home so when I saw they had classes in Montclair, I decided to see what it was that got her so into it. I know. These classes are so incredibly enjoyable and Mr. Michael is the perfect person for my 2 year old to rock out with. She gets SO excited and is on her feet the entire time, engaging with the class. I'm so glad we signed up!"

"I absolutely love this class! This is the only music class that my 18 month old son enjoys because he can run and dance in the center of the room. Most classes require children to sit in a circle and sing baby songs. This class has instructors with real instruments, singing well written music. I love how we are not singing along to a cd during class... Who wants to pay for that? "

"Best music class!!!! It is so entertaining, interactive and also educational. I love that the teacher introduces different musical instruments in each class and lets the kids play with them. My daughter loves the class and I am very happy with the quality of the class. The teachers do a fantastic job! I totally recommend Rockness Music classes."

"My daughter and I absolutely love this class! My husband and mother think it’s great too! All of the songs are original and fun. The instructors are talented and professional. My daughter loves dancing with her shakers along to the songs as well as participating in the dance party with streamers. She also loves exploring different musical instruments now and playing them at home. She has already learned so much in the class, and I look forward to continuing to see her progress. I highly recommend Rockness Music."

"We love Rockness Music!! My son will use anything he can to sit on and drum like the teacher. He's learned new instruments as well as how to count and say colors in Spanish. The class is also fun for the adults, which is important too! Our biggest takeaway is that my shy little toddler has really come out of his shell. The teacher has never pushed him and he SLOWLY got comfortable. Now he's dancing and singing in class and, at home when you're not looking, he does a great Rockness Music teacher impression!!"

"This is not your typical music class-- it's so much better! Live (catchy!) music, mystery discovery instruments, shakers, ribbon dancing, drumming, and so much more. The teacher brings an infectious energy to every class and he understands that every child will engage with the music in his/her own way. It's one of the only classes I've made sure to do with all three of my children. Highly recommend! Come prepared to rock!"

"We’ve been going to Rockness Music for a couple of years now! We love it so much and look forward to our Friday classes in Maplewood every week. Sometimes she’s not in a great mood but the class always transforms her into a happy dancing kid. We also enjoy the cds they give out so we can rock out whenever we want! "
