We are so happy to have this opportunity to make musical memories together!  Please take a moment to review the private lesson and small group classes available below and reach out with any questions you may have!

We offer a wide variety of classes to meet the needs of all ages.  Music is the gateway to learning and engages just about all of the brain.  Harvard Health points out that, "music can activate almost all brain regions and networks, it can help to keep a myriad of brain pathways and networks strong, including those networks that are involved in well-being, learning, cognitive function, quality of life, and happiness."

We are excited to get to know you and work with you soon!
