Escape the heat and come dream and sing about summer fun by the water. We'll move, and play along with Vivaldi's "Summer" - plus sing about rowboats, sailors, pirates, monsoons and more. All while learning music fundamentals and experiencing the joy and bonding that comes with music making.

Welcome to our delightful Music Class for babies and toddlers, a wonderful journey of musical exploration and development for little ones! Our class is designed to foster a strong bond between tots and their caretakers while providing a stimulating environment for growth and discovery. Our expert instructors will guide you through soothing lullabies, joyful tickle songs, and heartwarming melodies, creating beautiful moments of connection that will last a lifetime! In our class, your little one will have the opportunity to explore various musical genres, instruments, and rhythms, stimulating their auditory senses and fostering a love for music from an early age. While your little one enjoys the company of other babies and toddlers, you, as a caretaker, will have the chance to connect with like-minded individuals, forming lasting friendships and support networks. We believe that music is not just for babies—it's for everyone involved!
