Pickering Music House is a small music school operating out of the Sevilla Family home in west Durham.  Pickering Music House has been offering  Music for Young Children® classes since 2009, taking the 'piano lesson' to a whole new level.

We provide the best quality music education to young children by blending the pleasure and the joy of music making with sound instruction.



Music for Young Children® is an innovative, Canadian program that takes a hands-on approach to learning music.  Designed specifically for the young beginner, a child of any age, from 3 years through to pre-teen, can join a class with children their own age, and learn to play and understand music.  MYC combines proven music education theories and Early Childhood Education principals into one fantastic program.  The curriculum includes, piano, rhythm, singing and movement cohesively mixed together in a fun, imaginative environment filled with songs, story-telling, and games.   This interactive approach engages children to learn, and reaches them through multiple learning styles.  MYC's method allows children the freedom to explore musical concepts while building concentration, self-expression and confidence.

Taught by a Certified MYC Teacher, and accompanied by their parent, children work together in small-age specific groups to learn fundamental music and keyboarding skills including:  

keyboard geography
 sight reading
note naming
composition writing
ear training

There are 3 age-appropriate beginner keyboard levels.  Students completing the advanced levels are well prepared to move into intermediate piano studies or move on to another instrument.    

Also offering Music Pups® parent & tot  Music & Movement classes, and Sunrise®  Introduction to Music age 2 1/2 - 3 1/2

Children graduate from MYC in 3-5 years with the knowledge required for the Basic Theory exam and the performance skills required for Level One conservatory exams.  MYC is an extremely effective program for providing children with the solid foundation they need to succeed in further study and private lessons.  In addition to being of superior quality, MYC is comprehensive, confidence building and fun...and a wonderful way to begin the study of music.
