Here are some considerations:

This is a family-oriented class, rather than a drop-off class, so one adult per family is required to attend. Childcare for younger siblings is provided on-site. We’ve heard from families that the younger ones are singing the songs and games we work on in class!

This class is for kids attending school in grades K-3, and home-schoolers of similar ages. While I am a huge proponent of all-ages classes, I recognize the benefit of focus groups. This class will require skills such as waiting one’s turn, small-motor facility, and following directions. In the interest of classroom flow, we will restrict attendance to children who are already have classroom experience in a K-3 environment. If you have a precocious young one or an older child that you think would thrive in this type of class, please contact me to make special arrangements.

– Families should provide their own instruments:

  • – Soprano Ukulele
  • – Soprano Recorder
  • – Optional: Xylophone, Glockenspiel or Keyboard
  • – Optional: Frame drum, djembe or cajon


Please see the Materials page for more information about instruments for class.
