Go Go Babies AGE: 0 - 24 MONTHS - CLASS SIZE: 15


9:30-10:15 am


In these interactive classes, babies enjoy delightful rhymes, lullabies, floor and lap games, action songs, and dances that stimulate natural responses to music. Baby-sized instruments such as maracas, bells, hand drums and gathering drums are used, as well as colorful scarves for movement and the peek-a-boo songs! The babies love to hold their instruments and respond to the music.



  • Babies naturally shake or pat objects, and the instruments allow them an opportunity to make music while doing so
  • Caregivers are encouraged to participate in the interactive musical games and dances
  • Classes are based on the latest research into infant musical development and help to develop listening and motor skills
  • Language development and a sense of balance and timing are also enhanced
  • Classes are 45 minutes



Jazzy Toddlers AGE: 1 - 2 YEARS OLD - CLASS SIZE: 15


10:30-11:30 am



The toddler classes feature delightful songs, dances, and musical activities that focus on singing, moving, and playing. High-quality percussion instruments, puppets, and colorful props make this a very special music time. The toddlers love exploring different sounds or timbres as we play many types of sounds: wood, metal, skins and shakers. The age-appropriate songs and movement activities assist and enhance language development and memory and improve coordination and timing. Creative social interaction helps toddlers express their feelings productively and develops their imagination and ability to focus as they learn musical concepts, vocabulary, and musicianship by making music. Classes are 60 minutes and require the participation of the caregivers.




  • The impulse to move, speak, sing and play rhythmically is a natural and vital part of being human
  • After one year of music studies, children who start music at a later age have far less gain in their musical intelligence than children who had that year of music at a young age
  • Just as babies learn to speak and understand our language before they learn to read and write it, music is also learned best this way!
  • Our approach to music is a joyful and exciting experience for very young children using singing, movement and instrument playing to teach music
  • By participating in these lessons, the child will become a better musician and will be more successful in future musical pursuits
