Ons uitgangspunt is om kinderen beneden de 4 jaar goede mogelijkheden te bieden om hun muzikaliteit te ontplooien. Het geven van muzieklessen aan jonge kinderen vraagt om degelijke muzikaal pedagogische en didactische kennis, kennis van de algemene ontwikkeling van jonge kinderen, observatie-vaardigheden, vaardigheid in het inspelen op de interesses en mogelijkheden van de kinderen en professionele vaardigheden als musicus. Kennis van onderzoek is belangrijk, dit draagt bij tot theorievorming en ondersteuning van de praktijk.

Preschool Music Education (PME) provides music for children from the age of 4 months to 4, 5 or 6 years (depending on the country) accompanied by a parent or carer, including grandparents. Courses are held not only at music schools but also in community centres. Lessons are given in larger groups at nurseries and sometimes playgroups. The aim is to motivate and stimulate the children according to their own level of possibilities and development. The goal is to let children acquire basic skills of music by means of a programme strongly underpinned by appropriate theory. Out of motivation comes participation, participation evokes musical experiences.
