We hold these at our own Arts Project Theatre.  We even provide a red carpet and step and repeat banner to make it fun!

Parent and Me (Ages 2-5)

  • Intro to Music - A parent-and-me-style music class designed to meet the developmental needs of newborns and infants through interaction with a parent or caregiver.  Of course babies can’t jump up and dance but there are wonderful and rewarding ways in which they will respond when their innate musical curiosity is stimulated. Your heart will swell as you watch your baby joyfully discover their new world through music. Mixed-age classes are also appropriate for babies.
Kreative Kids (Ages 4-6) Youth (7-10) & Juniors (Ages 11-13)
  • VOICE - In a group voice class, students learn the provided material and work to prepare songs by the assigned dates. Songs are usually chosen as a group or by the instructor. If students struggle with certain aspects of the song, there may or may not be time for the instructor to pause and focus on specific struggles.
  • PIANO - These fun group lessons will give students opportunities to learn to play the piano and develop performance confidence. In addition to the benefit of playing in a group, students experience a sense of accountability to weekly preparation and practice.
  • GUITAR/BASS/UKULELE - Group lessons help instill a love of music that will last a lifetime. Group lessons for the younger students are filled with fun activities to help keep them engaged in the class. They are a natural stepping stone to private lessons.
Seniors & Adults (Ages 14-18+)
  • Many adults pursue music lessons either as a relaxing hobby, for something to do while their child is taking their music lesson, or just simply to have some 'me time'.  Others find themselves in a situation or band and feel they're struggling to keep up.  Whether you're a working professional, parent, retiree or college student, we understand that music lessons do not have to be an added chore in your already busy schedule.  Our instructors will work with you at your pace, helping you to reach your musical goals in a fun, non-stressful manner.
