In-School Music Programs

Music education with Keiko Studios is not limited to our Jamaica Avenue location. We also teach at DOE, charter, and private schools. We care about providing programs to schools that are missing this essential subject and building a more involved and unified community through music education. We offer in-school music programs to all grade levels: pre-kindergarten, elementary, middle and high schools. This is an opportunity to educate, challenge and stimulate students through singing, movement, instrument playing, reading, and performance.
