Little Prodigies Music & Arts School
Little Prodigies Music & Arts School started out as a camp, in June 2011, where we had our first Summer Program with over 20 kids in attendance. It was held at the Cleveland Eneas Primary School. That year we were very fortunate to have teaching the children in attendance, the best lecturers and local musicians in the music industry, such as Isaiah Taylor, Fred Ferguson, Ivan Prosper, Tamika & Travante Taylor, and Dorothy Hannah. The kids had a blast and showcased all they learnt at the end of the camp’s recital.
We continued teaching piano lessons privately in locations that were made available to us by friends and supporters. In the midst of the ups and downs, the school stayed committed to the cause of teaching and developing the current and next generation of musicians. It wasn’t until October 2016 that Little Prodigies Music & Arts School finally located a space and opened its doors.
Currently, Little Prodigies Music & Arts School specializes in music instruction in piano and drums, with the goal of providing more classes in guitar and wind instruments. We also plan to fulfill the arts segment of the school by providing classes in dance, singing, acting (broadway, theatre and film), and script writing. In addition to music and the performing arts, we also provide services in Tutoring for Math, English, & Reading for grades 1 – 6.
