Welcome to Bellevue’s School of Performing Arts–a place where adults and children can learn and develop musical skills in a nurturing environment. Our desire here at Bellevue is to provide opportunities to develop and use the talents that God has given to tell His wonderful story and give Him glory!

Kindermusik is offered for our youngest students: ages newborn through age 7. Kindermusik offers families a weekly musical education class that prepares children for school readiness skills and future instrument study.

Classes are held on Wednesday mornings, September through May.

All three of my children did Kindermusik from babies to 5-years-old.  Hands down it was the best activity of all the things we did! I truly believe in the benefits that the child received from starting music at such a young age. I loved the child-parent focused time as well.  It introduces exposure to different types of rhythms and styles of music. My kids always looked forward to their Kindermusik day! And I did too!
