Karen Welsh, our Chief Manager, is excited to bring The Music Class  programs into the studio.  She said, “I have been considering adding an early childhood option to my music studio for a few years.  I am delighted to offer what Rob Sayers has developed in this music foundations “Music Pups” class.  I have recognized, in my years of private music instruction, many students who missed getting exposure to and experience in music foundations as a young child.  Young children enjoy music enrichment, it is easy to do, and it is so beneficial for the young child in music language development.”

  • Other class offerings at the studio are:
  • Sunrise, Sunshine, Sunbeams, and Moonbeams, all from Music for Young Children;
  • Mouse-n-Bear learn the keys
  • Kids at the Keys, Teens at the Keys, and Adults at the Keys; and our
  • At the Guitar and Ukulele classes are a great way to get started.
  • We currently offer individual lessons in Piano, Ukulele, and Guitar. 

Students of all ages enjoy classes and lessons at Mapleford and we have fun helping with their personal music goals.

With our emphasis on Music in Life and Community, Mapleford provides our younger students with the foundation music skills for participation in K-12 and community youth music organizations. We have students participating in school bands and choirs from 5th grade up and have had great success in students auditioning and being accepted in community based youth music organizations.
