Music Classes at Scripps Montessori

In this class children gain an enthusiasm for learning music and a head start on the fundamentals.  They sing songs, and through ear training they start to develop a “good ear” and sing on pitch.  They learn dynamics (soft, loud, and in between) and listen  and work together to make harmonious sound.  They lean to read rhythms and play rhythm instruments brought into the classroom and listening to samples of music, they learn to recognize various instruments and styles of music.  They will have fun making simple instruments and learning about how sound is made.  Class is offered on Tuesdays from 2:40-3:25 the monthly tuition is $48.  Enrollment forms can be found in the lobby in the bin on the wall to the right of the office door. For more information or questions please contact Mary Kilmer (858) 361-4659.

Violin Class – Esslinger School of Music

Esslinger flyer San DiegoWould you like your child to learn how to play the violin? Esslinger School of Music is offering a Suzuki Violin, after school program this year at Scripps Montessori School, for children 4 years old and up.

The Suzuki Method believes that the parents’ longterm vision and involvement is key to bringing the joy of music and the gift of violin into a child’s life. Some of the tenets of the Method which make it memorable, joyful and powerful are:



  • Start young, make it fun
  • Emphasize ear training and repetition
  • Create a nurturing home environment for absorbing a new, musical language
  • Play often as a group for fun, to create community, to ingrain technique andto enjoy musical expression
  • Commit to “everyday you eat, you practice” ( Dr. Suzuki) … 3 – 10 minutes a day is all it takes the first year or two.

In the Suzuki Method each student has one group and one private lesson a week. The group and private lessons are 30 minutes and will be Tuesdays, after school, between 2:45 PM – 7 PM. Tuition for the first 12-week trimester is $680 (payment can be made in 2 installments). This includes a solo recital. A one year commitment is highly recommended to get the full violin experience.

I would enjoy meeting you by phone or email, and answering any questions you may have. Contact me by August 15, if signing up for lessons this fall.

Esslinger School of Music

If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.
