Children, six months to three years, will grow, learn and connect through music in this engaging music series. Utilizing developmental music therapy techniques, Music Makers and Shakers aims to increase children’s social-emotional, motor and cognitive skills.

Miss Emily, a board-certified music therapist, will engage young minds and bodies with live acoustic accompaniment and a range of musical instruments for young ones and their caregivers to explore. This will be an inclusive class where children of all abilities are welcome including neuro-divergent children, children with developmental delays and typically developing children.

Please note that baby siblings younger than 6 months can come but are not counted as part of the class.
