Building skill through joyful experiences with music

“Hearing a parent say their four-year-old couldn’t wait to practice, as they witness their child begin to understand music by ear is something amazing to be a part of.”

Our Playground program is geared specifically to engage the vibrant minds of our younger students through learning the language of music: melody, harmony, and rhythm.

This special program features positive reinforcement only, teaching on multiple instruments (including ukulele, piano, bells, and more), the use of authentic music and folk songs, and plenty of room to move with the students to dance, sing...and jump from activity to activity before anyone gets tired.

All training will be provided by Eclectic Music for Playground Certification.
