Winter 2023

Sticks collection

Winter registration is open!


We're thrilled to start our winter session soon!


You and your child will love going for a musical ride with "Ridin' in the Car" and "Trot to Grandma's House." We'll dance with "Don Alfredo Baila," march and scamper with "The Tailor and the Mouse," and go "Pop!" with that good old fashioned weasel. The Sticks collection features songs from Spain, Ireland, and China, as well as American folk songs and lots of original songs too. In addition to the classes, your tuition includes a beautifully illustrated songbook, CD and digital music downloads, a family newsletter with more at-home music making ideas, online access to the songs through the Hello Everybody app, and tons of great music and content in our Family Music Zone.


As always, grownups are indispensable to our musical time together; our emphasis is on the caregiver-to-child relationship. Small children are not expected to focus; rather, they are encouraged to respond spontaneously to the musical environment. We use singing, movement, rhythmic chants, instrument play, and lots of other ways to express ourselves musically during class Children are welcome to move around the room, sit and watch, or dance while we're sitting. As long as their grownups are engaged in making music, the children are learning by their role model that music-making is a fun and valuable family activity.


The cost for the 10 week session is $210 for one child and $140 for additional siblings. Siblings one year and younger attend for free. New families please add a one-time new family registration fee of $10.


Join us and fill your family's winter with music, fun and friendship!
