Whatever your age, our mission is to work with you over a span of time to build your skills and your love of music. All the arts are utilized in this process from storytelling, to writing poetry and songs, to drawing and taking photos and video. We also dance, throw and bounce balls for hand-eye coordination, tell jokes in rhythm, and aspire to be at the heart of childhood, no matter our age, at every opportunity.
