"Our information sessions are a valuable resource for any parent in the local community. Here they will get to meet our exceptional and highly-qualified faculty and learn how the MUSE approach will encourage your child to reach their full potential through our rigorous curriculum, music, dance and performing arts", Zoe Marmot, Admissions Director.

MUSIC: We approach music through immersive daily instruction beginning in Pre-K that weaves rhythm, song, and simple melodies into the fabric of learning and daily life. Every MUSE artist develops baseline musicianship that builds into advanced levels of performance and music creation in succeeding years.

LETTERS & SPEECH: We believe that language skills are acquired best through a performative approach in which reading, writing, and speaking well are taught as pleasurable activities that grow out of vivid texts and shared creation. Early skills are then honed through study of grammar, rhetoric, and literary performance as children mature.

SCIENCE: Our science curriculum ignites a sense of wonder and drive to understand the world by progressing from visual learning and tactile experimentation, to analytical skills and tools. We present science as an ongoing and unfinished project that MUSE students actively participate in as future scholars and citizens.

MUSE Academy is currently accepting applications for grades pre-K 3 through 2nd grade for the fall of 2018. MUSE Academy fills a critical need for high quality, humanist education in the area, and extends the Brooklyn Music School's commitment to enabling children to experience the joy of music, and to reap the demonstrated intellectual benefits of culture and the performing arts.

Music, dance, and dramatic arts are central to the MUSE educational experience and profoundly contribute to a child's cognitive and social development. Our approach engages all the modes through which children learn and communicate - including verbal, analytical, kinesthetic, spatial, social, and emotional - using an inquiry-based learning model.

At MUSE Academy, every day is an adventure in learning in which students develop critical thinking capacities across diverse but intersecting areas, such as Spanish, Mandarin, science, and music. Creative expression instills a sense of wonder, and illuminates a rich path of world knowledge, social awareness, and self-discovery. Curriculum and instruction are crafted collaboratively among all staff, including the Head Teachers, Math and Science specialists, as well as the Directors of Music and Dance.
