Classes at Whelan can be music to our ears. At the elementary level, students are exposed to music theory, music concepts including rhythm, harmony, and melody, and how sound can create an environment all its own. Students experiment with music individually, in small groups, and as part of a larger performing crew.

Music has no bounds, and students start to realize that they can create music with the simplest objects, by tapping their feet, clapping, or learning a new musical piece taught by our inspirational instructors. At Whelan, students begin to notice their own musical talents, and celebrate music they make together with their peers.
