Our mission is to give children a space to let their imaginations run wild! Then, to find ways of harnessing their ideas and turning them into forms that can be experienced by all of us.  This coming season, we will be focusing on the deep connections between music and the world around us. Kids enjoy a rich and diverse music education, experiencing this art-form each day through a myriad of artistic lenses: visual art, voice, instrumental, theatrical expression or maybe in ways that we haven’t thought of yet!  Our professional artist educators in residence will develop collaborative projects with students over the course of the full school year that will culminate into an end-of-the year production to be shared with family, friends and the greater community!

Most importantly, our studio is a place of friendship and collaboration where every voice is invited to sing and every voice is celebrated!

We hope you will join us!

“Music Magic!”

3:30pm – 4:15pm
PK-5
In this class students will learn about all the elements that come together to make music!  They will explore concepts such as ear training, rhythm, ensemble playing, and more, in a way that will be playful and yet also establish a deep musical foundation from which they can plant their creative “seeds” for life!

“Music of Art 2-D!”

4:30PM-5:15PM
PK-5
In this class students will study how the development of Music and the development of visual art went hand in hand.  They will learn about what was going on in the world socially, politically and environmentally that may have influenced artists, musicians and performers to create great art!  We will focus on two dimensional art (ie: drawing, painting, mosaic, textiles, etc). Students will then be introduced to a particular genre of music and then make their own works of art using the techniques of the great masters.  For example: Impressionism: Finding the correlation between the paintings of Monet and the music of Debussy.

“Developing Musicality through the Theatre Arts”

3:30pm-4:15pm: 2-5
4:30pm -5:15pm: PK-1
In this class students will explore the music found within language and movement.  “Timing,” on stage is something that is mastered by understanding the unsung rhythm and melodies within the telling of a story.  Great theatre is achieved when all players work in concert with each other to create a phenomenal symphony of emotion and drama!

“Children’s Chorus”

3:30pm – 4:15pm
2-5
In this class children will be working with performing artists in residence with Hudson Opera Theatre to learn the art of singing together!  Music selections will range from popular children’s songs to children’s choruses directly out of the operatic repertoire as well as original compositions.  Children will learn the basics of healthy vocal technique, reading music, harmony, as well as singing in a variety of different languages.

“Welcome to the Opera!”

4:30PM-5:15PM
PK-5
In this class artists in residence with the Hudson Opera Theatre will work with students to introduce them to, “What is opera?”  Over the course of the year, students will be immersed in the elements and combinations of both the emotion and creativity that it takes to create an opera.  The course will culminate in students creating their own production, performing side by side with professional opera singers and musicians from the Hudson Opera Theatre!

“Jump & Jam!”

3:30pm – 4:15pm
PK-5
In this class students will work together as a band/ensemble using a variety of instruments (guitars included!) to explore music from a massive variety of styles and cultures.  Imagine everything from classical Indian Ragas to Rock and Roll!

“Musical StoryTime and Composition”

4:30pm-5:15pm
PK-1
In this class students will begin to learn how music is built, what inspires it to be built and what are the techniques and tools used to build it.  A composer should never be limited to any one musical “language,” so the goal of this class will also be to expose students to as many different sounds and techniques as possible; to give them a broad and colorful palette from which to create their own musical masterpieces.

“Composition & Musical Development”

4:30pm-5:15pm
2-5
In this class students will begin to learn how music is built, what inspires it to be built and what are the techniques and tools used to build it.  A composer should never be limited to any one musical “language,” so the goal of this class will also be to expose students to as many different sounds and techniques as possible; to give them a broad and colorful palette from which to create their own musical masterpieces.

“Sing Out for Peace!”

3:30pm – 4:15pm
PK-5
In this class students will learn the music and stories of musical heroes such as Pete Seeger and Ella Jenkins, among others, who used the power of music to bring people together, raise awareness about protecting our planet and countless other social issues.  These heroes valued the voices and power of children to bring about change in our world, and we hope through this class that students will learn to recognize their power and use their voices to do great things!

“Music of Art 3-D!”

4:30PM-5:15PM
PK-5
In this class students will study how the development of music and the development of visual art went hand in hand.  They will learn about what was going on in the world socially, politically and environmentally that may have influenced artists, musicians and performers to create great art!  We will focus on three dimensional art (ie: sculpture, architecture, masks, etc). Students will then be introduced to a particular genre of music and then make their own works of art using the techniques of the great masters.  For example: Jazz: Finding the correlation between the Sculptures of Louise Nevelson and the music of the Bebop Jazz period.

  • It is such a great program that Maoz runs - amazing to see such great results so quickly!

  • What makes Ezra Guitar great is its open heart and the creative chance it gives itself to grow.  Who does this benefit? My kid. Thanks Ezra for your programming, child to adult ratio (awesome), and knowing that at the end of a long day, that your warmth and knowledge of my son always leaves him with a smile as we journey home. Fondly,

    Sasha, Arun’s Mom (After School Student) 2014-2018
  • Thank you for modeling and fostering such amazing creativity in our children 🙂

    Suzannah, Tallulah’s Mom (After School Student) 2015-2018
  • We are so thankful for the year Jack had with you. We’ve seen him gone from barely being able to balance the guitar on his leg (!) to giving us “Spiderman” concerts in our home, as well as testing us on the parts of the guitar.  And of course, meeting so many kids in a nice, small setting was a huge bonus to us. Thank you, thank you again. It was a wonderful year and we look forward to next year. Happy summer, all!

  • My son has grown musically after each lesson over 5 years with EzraGuitar. It's helped him in his daily life too, he's more focused and confident! He's been blessed to have such a great teacher to guide him!

  • The EzraGuitar School is great for getting guitar exposure to children in schools.  The method is simple and straightforward and has kids playing the instrument right away!

  • Maoz Ezra's unique method which has been used by a wide variety of schools and teachers, has been flourishing in a time when the arts are facing difficult challenges, proof that he is on to something valuable..."

  • My daughter has grown up in EzraGuitar's After School since 2014. I couldn't be happier! I recommend any of their programs to friends!

    After School Mom
  • Maoz Ezra's classes are very well structured. My son came home and 'performed' for our family after learning the "Old MacDonald" for the first time. This is after just a few 30 minute classes. Maoz is very patient and spends time individually with each child in the class. My son is really gaining a wealth of musical knowledge from this fabulous class!
