    Our Teaching Methodology

    We base our music teaching on the work of Carl Orff – famed Austrian musician, composer and pioneer in the field of music education.

    We believe that children learn best by active play: clapping, singing and chanting, drumming a beat, finding a melody on a xylophone, moving and dancing, and by playing rhythmic, singing and music theory games.

Our Covid Health Plan

Smaller classes of parents, caregivers, and children will come together for some musical fun! To keep everyone safe, we will require temperature checks upon arrival, and masks will be mandatory for ages 2 and up. We will encourage hand washing/sanitizing and practice respiratory etiquette (covering of sneezes, coughs, etc.). Adults and children will practice physical distancing.
