A modern new way of teaching music to young children will soon be available to local families.

Sylvia Samek will be opening a “Music for Young Children” (MYC) school out of her home starting this September. The school teaches young children how to read music and play simple notes on a piano using puppets and other fun activities.

“It’s a program that’s interactive.” Samek said, “It’s fun for the kids and it’s a little friendlier for them than just pressing down the keys.”

Samek also said parents play an important part in the MYC style of teaching.

“Parents are encouraged to come and interact with their child; learning along with them.” Samek said, “This way there is a three way partnership where the parent comes along and supports the child.”
