Have you ever wondered if your child is musical?
Or questioned, how to nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability? We offer a research and play-based music and movement curriculum for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. We teach the basic foundations of music competence, which is defined as singing in tune and keeping a beat. We believe that Music Learning Supports All Learning® and your child’s overall development. Active music-making creates unique connections in the brain supporting your child’s language, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. We have done our homework and are constantly learning by being a part of Music Together®'s World Wide community of early childhood music educators!

Looking for a drop-in music class?
We offer more than a drop-in music class. On your first day, you will take home a jam packed songbook filled with sheet music and at home activities. You will also receive a professionally recorded CD and download code, song stream acces through the Hello Everybody App and other take home resources. Each semester we offer 3 courtesy make-ups that can be used in all our locations.

Our enriched and complex music offers more beats/tempos and modes/tonalities, than your basic "Wheels on the Bus" and "Old Mac Donald." Although those two songs have great merit! Why? Repetition, repetition, repetition. This is why we don't offer drop-in classes.

We want you to learn the curriculum to grow with it. We have 9-song collections that support your musical journey with over 250 songs that include songs with different tonalities such as Mixo-lydian, Dorian and Lydian. We also have songs with 5 and 7 beats per measure, jazz and swing tempos, and mixed-meters. Don't worry about all this fancy terminology. Our play based curriculum will be like going to a "Musical" buffet with a lot of yummy "sounds and textures" that will have you singing and dancing along in no time.

If you are looking for a quality enriched curriculum that builds on your musical knowledge, we would love for you to sample a class. We require our music makers to make a committment of 6-12 weeks per semester, so that by the end of your semester, you are creating rounds, making up rhythms and substituting your own song lyrics.

 

Our Mission: We’re on a mission to make the world a better place by making it more musical through song, dance, play and community building. We strive to create a musically rich and developmentally appropriate musical environment for you and your child. We hope to continually inspire you with years of enriching tonalities and worldly beats.

 

"Hello Everybody!" Thank you for your interest in our classes. The best way to understand what we do and offer is to Sample A Class. If you want to learn more about us and our family events, we invite you to subscribe to our fun filled newsletter. We like to send our families free songs and family activities every month."
