Music Programs

We offer lessons and classes in the form of private voice, private voice/piano, and small group ensembles. Students develop a strong base in music theory while exploring concepts such as scales/solfege, rhythm, and harmony. All classes encourage expression and foster skills in performance. Two recitals are offered each year as well as many other seasonal opportunities.

Mini Program

Our music program introduces children the concepts of music and movement. We use singing and movement to develop the basics of music theory and performance. Through song, story and the exploration of simple instruments such as claves, shakers, tambourines, and drums; children are introduced to concepts such as “beat”, “rest”, Solfege (Do, Re, Mi)! Children get to explore different genres of music and develop coordination through movement, instrumentation, singing, and body percussion! Our goal is to engage every child’s imagination to develop an early love for music

Private Voice Lessons

Recreation Program

Our voice is our most primal and ancient instrument. It is the easiest to use and one of the most difficult instruments to master. At Riverside Performing Arts, we focus on proper technique and the importance of safe and healthy vocal development – fun is mandatory, but experience is not.
