Wouldn’t you love for your child to play an instrument, maybe piano, guitar, even violin, but you’re not quite sure if now is the time?

  • Get ready for school by drawing simple objects and strengthening vocabulary
  • Imitate melody and match pitch
  • Create new songs and pretend through music, to foster imagination and creativity
  • Dance in a group, to learn social cues and expression in a safe, social environment
