Early childhood music education and musical coaching

Children can begin pursuing music as a hobby even before they go to school. At the Kainuu Music Institute, children’s musical education includes music playschool and violin playschool, and children’s preparatory lessons include the Marjukkaiset kantele group, instrument merry-go-round and instrument training.

Music playschool groups are available to children under 7 years old according to age group, starting with three-month-old babies. Children under 3 make music at the playschool together with a parent or guardian. There are also family groups where siblings can participate together with a parent or guardian. The violin playschool is suitable for 4 to 8-year-old children.

Marjukkaiset are kantele groups for 4 to 6-year-olds and 7 to 9-year-olds. The instrument merry-go-round is intended for 6 to 8-year-olds and involves exploring several different instruments over one year. Instrument training involves focusing on one instrument in small groups, in preparation for the Music Institute’s basic studies in the instrument.

You can enrol your child year-round in the music playschool and preparatory lessons. Welcome!
