Let's do this!

Favorite and conveniently book Kid Experts for sessions throughout the site.

Instruments are always super exciting to play around with, but if your child expresses interest in music, I can transform these sound-making "toys" into a rewarding learning experience. Together, we will learn basic music theory (i.e. musical terms, keeping tempo, counting in & basic conducting). We will repeat the cycle of counting in, playing notes in tempo and stopping when the conductor gives the signal. We will move forward by picking our favorite song and playing along in tempo. After our lesson, we will prepare a mini concert for Mom and Dad and perform when they get home!
