In the upcoming song collection, families will play with their voices by mimicking the sounds of instruments in the “French Folk Song,” and Spanish-speaking animals in “De Colores.” (Did you know that in Spanish, roosters say “Quiri-quiri quiri” to wake people up?) Making funny animal sounds, lip-burring, and other tonal play helps children explore their vocal register, discover their singing voices and distinguish them from their speaking voices. And since children learn from contrasts and by expressing music with their full bodies, you’ll be hopping lightly like birds and sliding smoothly like an iceskater. You’ll have so much fun you won’t even notice that you’re learning staccato and legato! In addition to your weekly classes, your tuition includes recordings and materials for you to use at home, including access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app. Join the Winter session and play, sing, laugh and learn with families in your community - online.
Join us for the Bongos Collection this Fall!
Classes continue to be online only, but we have been having a great time connecting in this new way. While meeting in-person is still ideal, we have found many benefits to our new online platform (and continue to improve as we go!) Curious at all? Missing class? Come for a Demo!
Fall is a 10 week semester with more offerings, for more ways to connect with your music-making community and stretch out the learning fun. See the Classes page for more info.
Classes are being offered this summer - online!
While it may not be what we are used to, or what we all prefer, we're making the best of this strange time and offering classes via Zoom. Check out the Registration and Classes pages for all the details - dates, times, and what is now included with tuition.
We look forward to 'seeing' you all again very soon!!
It's with sad hearts that we are canceling our spring semester. We follow the school district closures so while they are closed for 6 weeks, so are we. In 8 or so weeks Ms. Christy's baby is also due, so we are not able to simply postpone our classes, we must wait for summer semester instead. Emails and calls have been made to our families, but if there are any questions about how we are handling tuition and materials please ask. Call, text or email us and we'd be happy to chat.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all handle this crisis.
We'll be back for a short 4-week summer semester planned for all of August so stay tuned for details!
We're in the last week of winter classes and some of the spring classes are already full!
There's still seats to choose from in class days throughout the week, so it's not too late. Here's the latest remaining seat count.
If you want to come check us out before committing to the whole 8 week semester, sign up for a free, no obligation Demo Class asap. Our Demo Scheduler makes it easy to reserve your spot in an upcoming class. If you come the first week of spring classes and want to register right after, we'd be happy to do help you do that after class.

The first edition of our new family songbook series is here!
Each song in the Fiddle collection is brought to life through colorful and engaging illustrations by award-winning artist Jaime Kim.

You'll find it helpful to learn the lyrics, as a jumping-off point for creative storytelling, and to learn more about the songs you're singing in class. Your child may enjoy snuggling with you and singing through the whole book at once—or opening to a page to tell you what song they want to sing! We can't wait to share them with you soon!
