Our teachers are trained and registered through Music Together®, LLC and the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, New Jersey. We are passionate about music and young children, and hope to inspire a whole new generation of music makers who can sing in tune, move in rhythm and participate with joy and confidence as they create music with family and friends throughout their lives. We love what we do!
