We're going online for the Maracas Collection!

Join us on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/MTFirstNotes/ at 9:30 and 10:30 AM Monday through Saturday starting April 6. 

Beginning Wednesday, April 9, we'll move into a private group for families who have registered for the Spring Session. 


What We Believe 

  • All children are musical.
  • All children can achieve basic music competence - they can learn to move their bodies accurately to the beat and can sing in tune - with enough experience in the early years. 
  • Parents and primary caregivers are essential in the musical growth of children, regardless of the musical achievements of the adults.
  • Children learn best in a playful, developmentally appropriate setting, without performance expectations.
  • Music is a fun, meaningful, and essential life skill.     

What This Looks Like in Class 

  • Classes meet once a week (10 week sessions, except for the 6 week summer session) for 45 minutes a class, with 6 to 12 children and their parents/caregivers.
  • Everybody sings! 
  • Everybody dances! 
  • Everybody plays! 
  • Every registered family receives a songbook, CD, and a code to access downloadable content. There are nine song collections that rotate over three years, and three summer collections.
  • FUN!!!
