Each 25-minute and 15-minute online class includes rhythmic songs, rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance oriented, developmentally appropriate experiences -- fun for children and easy for parents and caregivers regardless of their own musical ability.
Our Mixed Ages Classes Online are for children ages birth through 5 and the grownups who love them. Our Babies Classes are for infants under 8 months old and the grownups who love them.
Our tuition can be paid in full before the first class or made in payments over the course of the collection after an initial payment is made before classes start.

- Zoom Video and Audio Policies - For security and safety reasons, please take note that you will be required to turn on your video when joining a class for the first time. If you are unable to turn on your video, you may be asked to leave the class. We also ask that you mute your audio once class has begun to minimize noise distractions. Periodically throughout the class, the teacher may unmute everyone so that you can give suggestions for a song activity, etc. The teacher will always give a warning before they unmute the class.

We will also be recording our Zoom classes and posting them in the private Facebook group for each collection.
