Music and Activites:
We use the ever popular Orff instruments, boomwhackers, and other recognizable instruments and music along side our own games and exercises to create a progressive curriculum that's fun and engaging. Our classes follow the same format ever week so our students can build a sense of familiarity and ownership over the class flow.
Open to all interested students from 6th to 8th grade.
We're excited to launch this class in September 2023. Sign up before June 1st and get the first month FREE.
We're moving spaces!
Our current studio has brought us this far, but it's time for us to expand into more space.
