Gigi Jingle Program
Our Gigi Jingle Program is a weekly, 30-minute music class for children ages 5-36 months and a parent or caregiver. Gigi is a soft-spoken, loving Giraffe puppet who laughs and sings with babies and toddlers. The children look forward to seeing "Gigi" and her many puppet friends each week! Rhythm instruments, drums (everyone's favorite), streamers, beanbags and scarves are also explored while listening to fun music and songs. Each week the children listen to one classical piece including the favorites: "Flight of the Bumblebee", "Moonlight Sonata", "Bear Symphony" and "Water Music". At the close of each class, children receive a Gigi Sticker while enjoying "The Freeze" dance. 

Family Harmony Program
Our Family Harmony Program is a weekly, 40-minute music class geared for children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years and their younger siblings and parents or caregiver. This class includes many elements of the Gigi Jingle Class but also adds a classical composer study and music theory time. During the upcoming Winter session, the children will be introduced to Joseph Haydn with Haydn the Happy Bug puppet. We will also be learning about musical notes.

                                                                                 be learning about music tempos and what they mean!   

                                                                      Family Harmony classes are like the Gigi classes, but we add a 
                                                                      10-minute composer & music theory segment in the middle - so
                                                                      they are 40 min instead of 30 min.

Preschool Art Program
Our Preschool Art Class is a weekly, 30-minute class for 21 months to 5 years. Children will be able to explore art and work with different art mediums each week. This class may get a little messy :) Preschool Art is a great way to encourage the development of fine motor skills and creativity in a relaxed, fun environment. Gigi will visit each week and children will be able to show her their  special "art work". :)
