School Year Programs for Toddlers up to Age 7
We are the original music school with a creative curiculum that grows with your child from birth to age 14! All classes are led by experienced, highly trained music educators who sing, play guitar, and play piano in every class. We bring the joy of music to your child in his/her world of imaginative play. All aspects of music found at a conservatory level - rhythm, beat, harmony, melody, reading music, writing music - are incorporated into each class at the appropriate level for each child.
We bring the ART of the MUSIC
