Dates: July 12 - August 16 (6 week program)
World acclaimed research based program taps into the child’s innate musical ability, leading them through primary music development to basic music competence. Basic music competence is having the ability to sing a song in tune and keep a steady beat. Our classes offer a non-competitive, non-performance environment where caregivers, regardless of music ability, nurture the child through forty-five minutes of music play. Classes encourage the child’s natural enthusiasm, giving them a positive attitude toward music and movement, which creates a solid foundation for future formal music and dance training. The setting of our classes encourages social interaction and helps develop the skills needed to get your child ready for school.
Tuition: $190 plus $15 one time family registration, sibling in same class $150 - infant 6 months or younger in same class no charge

Classes are taught by highly-skilled musicians and teachers who have a passion for inspiring students to learn and discover. Year after year, parents are astonished and amazed by how much their children learn in such a short period of time — and more importantly, how much fun they have doing it.
