Mommy and Me Music

Designed for children 0-5 year old, these music classes encourage your child to be creative, to initiate their own ideas, and to respond to music in their own way.  You will be an active participant, which gives them the security they need.  By playing instruments, singing, moving, and exploring, your child will uncover an engaging musical world while building their confidence, self-control, and communication skills.  To register, please click the registration link above.
