Through improvisation, rhythm, play acting, movement, and song, this class will offer fun for your toddler & you.

Color My Music: (2 to 3 years) with caregiver: on Tuesdays at 12pm OR Fridays at 12:30pm
These classes are filled with musical activities: students listen to stories, climb, jump, crawl, and use their imaginations in discovering the joy of music. Vocal exploration, call and response songs, movement, finger play and exposure to non-pitched instruments, make this class
a wonderful musical experience.
Music, Imagination & Me: (3 to 5 years) on Mondays at 4pm
This class encourages developing minds to improvise and stretch their imaginations through music. What would wind sound like at the piano? Could a painting turn into music? In this class, children will become more aware of pitch and rhythm, recognize the sound of different instruments, become more expressive through music, and develop more sophisticated movement to music.
Musical Voyage: (4 to 5 years) on Wednesdays at 1pm OR Wednesdays at 5:30pm OR Fridays at 1:30pm
This class is designed to promote musical independence, and to boost cognitive understanding of music. Students enjoy partner activities, musical games, and continue work with more advanced concepts such as tempo, dynamics, and timbre. The goal of this class is to nurture the musical intelligence of each child by providing opportunities to explore musical concepts through a variety of sounds, instruments and recordings.
