Baby & Parent Class – 0-15 mo. Parents learn new songs and movement to share with baby which will increase awareness to new experiences. Research has shown that this increases a child’s intelligence level. And, a major part of this experience is parent and baby sharing new experiences together. It also allows new parents to meet other new parents!

Toddler & Parent Class - 16 mo - 3 yrs. Toddler discovers instruments, movement and sings songs, along with other new musical and creative experiences. Discovery is an integral part of this class, and parents role model so child will learn and enjoy at the same time.

Music for Babies Newborn up to 15 months (Walking) and their grownups

Share the joy of music and movement while developing musical skills! Adult and child explore music through singing, focused listening, moving, echoing rhythmic and melodic patterns and playing simple percussion instruments.

The goal in private lessons is to focus entirely on nurturing the individual’s talents, strengthening theoretical abilities, and enabling a student to attain his or her goals. Lesson materials vary.
