NEW CLASSES and COLLABORATIONS!  How about a weekly ‘MUSIC PLAY DATE’ with your toddler?  Give it a try on Saturdays from 10:00-10:30am!  For ages 12-adult, join our new ‘VOICE – KARAOKE‘ class at 10:30!  Learn vocal exercises and techniques to strengthen your voice and gain experience with a microphone.  By popular demand, a freestyle DRUMS class and a BRASS class have also been added to the schedule!  Also, in collaboration with the Rising Star Preschool, we are bringing CAPOEIRA classes to the school on Mondays, starting in September!
