Doris Hickman, Hickman Music School Founder, in 1944. 

Our History

Cochran Music Preschool has enriched the lives of many children for over 40 years. Our rich history began in 1944 when Doris Hickman founded Hickman Music Preschool in Oklahoma City. In 1971, Doris' daughter Kay Cochran brought the tradition to Norman and founded Cochran Music Preschool. Today, Kay's daughter Kim Cochran carries on the tradition in our beautiful new facility. 

At Cochran Music Preschool, we strive to make each child's first educational experience a positive and learning opportunity through the joy of music. Every child is unique and we believe that success and growth come from encouragement and praise. Our teachers focus on building every child’s self esteem and confidence through positive feedback and rewards. We nurture their natural strengths. A child see’s the world around them with wonder and awe, we believe in encouraging their natural curiosity.
