bearmouse-small-crop-0.01-0.07-0.99-0.94Children will join Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear on a magical musical adventure.

         They will learn  how to play piano through a serious of weekly lessons. These lessons will use singing,

coloring, and movement as well as one on one instruction to teach the musical ideas for that week.

  • What  you can expect from lessons?  You and your child will have a basic understanding of music.  This understanding will include reading music, counting musical beats, playing music with expression, and how to practice at home.
  • These lessons are fun!  Making music is not supposed to be stressful.  Music for Little Mozarts works with children’s imagination and allows them to express themselves.
