ACMS is a non-profit community music school located here in Austin. We have offerings for all ages, from infant to adults, but one of our specialties is Early Childhood Music education. We offer family classes which are attended by children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years, along with their caregiver(s). Many of these classes are Music Together, which is a research-based, developmentally appropriate curriculum. These classes benefit language acquisition and have also been shown to be an effective tool in strengthening the bond between a child and caregiver.
We raise money year-round for our tuition assistance fund in order to ensure that all children have access to these wonderful classes. I would be happy to provide you with a printable copy of our tuition assistance form, and hope you will share it with any foster parents who may benefit from this experience.
