My Philosophy
I believe that all children are musical, creative, expressive, can act out a role,  can easily move to the rhythm. I believe that a well directed stimulating environment allows children to explore and grow their potential. At Kids at Music, LLC, we allow children of all ages and adults to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. We lead them to live what they are doing, and we let them develop passion for the Fine Arts. We believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children of all ages and adults need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, I believe that children of all ages and adults need to enjoy and have fun!  Children learn best from experiencing the world around them.

At Kids at Music, LLC we recognize that you have a difficult schedule and support parents the best we can. We offer to help so that your schedule can be accommodated. We recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents and working people. We strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.
