Early Birds are three to five years old!

Music classes for young children are playful programs of age-appropriate, holistic music.  Classes are small – between three and eight children in each – so our young musicians get lots of attention. As well, small classes mean a safe learning environment.  Payment of tuition holds your spot

When the unexpected happens and postponement is necessary after you’ve already paid tuition, full credit will be available for up to one year of initial payment. Refunds are not available.

Please note: We require a minimum enrollment of three to hold class.  If there is not sufficient enrollment to offer a particular class, we will let you know and offer you a choice of a different class.
