Our group music classes for children ages 4 months to 6 years are designed to encourage the development of motor, language, social and cognitive skills while having fun. In our weekly classes, children and adults enjoy a wide variety of music including classical hits by great composers, children's songs everyone knows, and contemporary popular music. Students play along with instruments such as maracas, wave drums, wrist bells, wood blocks, and many more! When they're ready, they also play along on their own violins, guitars, recorders, and keyboards!
TLB's talented music teachers play over 20 instruments and are accompanied by equally talented professional pianists. Throughout the session, students have the opportunity to play along with their teacher on each instrument! We also incorporate music-inspired movement into every class. In our toddler and baby music classes, kids look forward to bouncing on balls to the rhythm of the music while older children love dancing in coordination, solidifying the building blocks of rhythm, tempo, and dynamics through physical expression.

Every session, our music classes feature a new original curriculum. The model for our curriculum is based upon our belief that a child learns best in an environment in which he or she can have fun and experience creative, imaginative play. For that reason, we take a musical journey each session. Not only do we learn about music, but we also use music as a medium to learn about wherever our journey takes us. No performance here! Our class is interactive and engages our students beyond spectatorship.

Clean and Green
Cleanliness is of utmost importance at TLB.
Before every class, we clean each instrument that your child will use with a natural, non-toxic toy cleaner.
We also keep our studio stocked with CleanWell hand sanitizer.
It kills 99.99% of germs and is all-natural, alcohol-free, and non-toxic.
