Music First!

Did you know, when babies are born they possess the highest musical aptitude they will ever have? Early music exposure will prepare your baby or child for later musical development. Our Music First program is based on the Gordon Music Learning Theory. You and your child will sing, chant, move, dance, listen, and play simple instruments during these weekly classes, building a solid foundation for later music. Various times, locations, and days are offered for your convenience.

Ready for the next step? Introducing Music Second, a NEW group class which is the continuation of Music First and is also based on the Gordon Music Learning Theory.
