Each class offers plenty of fun outlets for toddler-style energy, promoting cognitive development through singing, dancing, and instrument play.

WHAT PARENTS SAY
I am so grateful for our time with Smart Start Music! My 5 year old attended from 11 months on and my 2 year old started as an infant. I see the benefits in their pre-reading and math skills, their imaginative play, expressiveness when reading, and their amazing ability to keep a beat!
My daughter and I started Kindermusik classes when she was 18 months old. We LOVE the classes and spending the time together each week! The classes expose her to new music, instruments, sounds and topics that she would not have learned about this soon otherwise.
