Mommy & Me / Sing With Me Music & Movement Program

Celebrating Over 26 Years of Joyful Family Music
Songs that Grandma Used to Sing

Special Offer! 2019-2020  SCHEDULE Special Offer!


There's so much more going on in the studio than music making. You don't just come to a class and then leave. Snack and chat and instrument exploration make it a very special time. Parenting concerns are supported with articles, conversation and families sharing. You will be equipped with simple activities to take home and enjoy together over and over.

Newcomers are welcomed with open arms, playgroups are formed as well as life long friendships. We are one big extended family, sharing our joy and sometimes our sorrow. Many families return year after year with new siblings.

Personal space is always respected for those who prefer not to socialize. It's unlike any music program in Washtenaw County. I hope you will come visit. Come and see what it's all about and help me celebrate 26 glorious years of Music For Little Folks.

Did you know that an infant's brain will double in size in their first year and that sensory experiences and movement impact brain development?
