If your family has not participated in a Little Roots program here yet, we strongly suggest you begin your child’s musical journey with a Family Class. This class is mixed ages from birth to age 6 and is charged per family, not per child.  Our Family Class is be the best way for your family to get acquainted with our Little Roots program and for the whole family to enjoy making music in community.  Once we get to know your child through the Family Class, we are able to continue finding the most enjoyable class for them to learn music each session. If the family class doesn’t fit with your schedule, please let us know which class you’re interested in,  and we will make sure it is the right fit for them.
