The Early Childhood Program for children 3 months to 5 years fosters the musical, intellectual, social-emotional, and physical development of young children by introducing them to the joys of music and visual art. Each class session is a unique musical experience, where your child will be immersed in collaborative music making with their peers and professional musicians. All Early Childhood offerings are led by experienced educators and highly trained musicians. In-person classes also include a pianist who accompanies each class in a variety of styles, in response to the children’s singing and expressive movement. 

The Instrumental and Vocal Department provides beginning to advanced instrument and voice study for students age 4 years to adult through comprehensive programs, weekly classes and ensembles, and the High School Certificate Program. Diller-Quaile faculty guide students in a vibrant and nurturing environment through an approach united by the pedagogical principles of using repertoire of enduring quality, teaching technique musically, and leading students to an understanding of the structure of music. This integrated approach to music education enables the school’s dedicated and skilled faculty to develop the emerging artistry in each student.
