We've been involved in Music Together since DS was 6 mos. old, and he's always LOVED it. This year (now 5 y.o.), he's in MYC (Sunbeams), and it's really not going well. I had misgivings when it was time to register in the spring, because it sounded too structured, but in the end I decided to try it. I think it IS too structured for DS right now. Although he seems to be very into learning the "theory" stuff, and really catches on to it quickly, it's always a struggle trying to get him to listen to his teacher, and to keep him from leaping around and generally causing a distraction. It's also a keyboard oriented class, and he's said a few times that he doesn't want to play piano, but often wishes he could play the other instruments like they used to do in MT classes. I've pretty much decided to withdraw, but I know DS will be disappointed. So... I was wondering about Kindermusik instead? For his age group, are their classes less "formal" and less piano-focussed? He's a very hands on, figure it out myself kind of kid, not a sit and listen to explanations sort. Would it be worth looking into, or is it the same thing, just different name? Thanks for your opinions!
