Welcome to Lucy Moses School at Kaufman Center! During the course of a year, more than 2,500 students—from tuneful toddlers to enthusiastic elders and everyone in between—study music, dance and theater in an atmosphere of encouragement and excellence. Our faculty members are caring teachers who are devoted to sharing their love of music and the performing arts with each of their students. We specialize in making the arts fun and accessible with flexible schedules and a range of courses, classes and opportunities encouraging all ages and abilities to participate. We provide weekly opportunities to perform and hear fellow students in a variety of settings. For parents and students who are more serious about their music study, we offer a Music Certificate Program and at the high school level, a Young Artist Program. For more than 50 years, Lucy Moses School has been providing thousands of people with the opportunity to make the performing arts a part of their lives. Plan to visit our school, observe a class, attend one of our many free concerts, talk with our parents and students and discover for yourself why Lucy Moses School is considered one of the finest community performing arts schools in the United States. Come, join us!

Our devoted teachers work with each student to provide the best learning experience possible and to share their love of music.

PRESCHOOLERS

3

Preschool classes at Lucy Moses School are friendly, full of laughter and discovery, and pave the way for a lifetime of music. By providing developmentally appropriate music experiences for young children and their families, we facilitate the musical growth of every child through listening, singing, movement games, dances and playing simple percussion instruments. As children progress through the curriculum, they develop important musical skills, such as careful listening and body-ear coordination, that lead to reading music and understanding musical concepts. These experiences lay the groundwork for continued musical study and provide a source for lifelong enjoyment of music. Page
