" It's so fun to do the class with the other families but I also love the ideas this class gives us for things we can do together at home." ~ A. Abbott
The IA class takes everything that’s good from the age-appropriate Tots & Tunes class and adds a “bigger kid” component of a featured instrument each week. Kids LOVE guessing what the weekly instrument is and getting to touch and “play” it. From percussion (cymbals, snare drum) to band and orchestra (violin, trombone) to instruments from around the world (concertina and mandolin) this class fires up the imagination of your 2-5 year old. Parents learn with the kids and get the bonus of meeting other families with little ones.
