What classes are currently offered?

Our classes for the Spring 2020 schedule are Taylor Swift Back Up Band and Toddler Music Immersion.

TAYLOR SWIFT BACK UP BAND

Put simply, Sean will be leading a group of musical Swifties to learn and perform as many Taylor Swift songs as humanly possible. Students in this class will band together to recreate Taylor Swift's catalogue with every student bringing his or her unique skill set to the table. Open to all singers and students of all instruments.

TODDLER MUSIC IMMERSION

This class has been specifically designed for toddlers with special needs, but is open to any and all music loving children ages 2-4. Every week, Sean and his staff will help students express themselves musically and connect with peers through sensory activities and exercises. The main goal of the Toddler Music Immersion class is to break down barriers between children with and without special needs in a positive and loving musical environment.
