At Tales 'N Tunes and Kids Music Round we are deeply committed to providing children and parents/caregivers with a quality class experience. We maintain small class sizes to ensure that each child feels safe to take risks and express musically. This will also enable our teachers to provide individual attention to each family. This will be especially important in the multi-age classes as it is our goal to differentiate activities to meet the varied developmental needs of children in the class. At Tales 'N Tunes and Kids Music Round, we also value empowering parents with information about how to recognize and nurture their child's language development and musical expression.
Below is a schedule of our current class offerings and upcoming classes:

The fun-filled, developmentally appropriate Kids’ MusicRound curriculum has been created with the whole child in mind. The curriculum targets infants through the early childhood years when the mind and child are most receptive to music learning. It is during this critical time period that our innate music potential is actively developing. An environment abundant in opportunities for musical discovery has been shown to greatly assist in nurturing that potential to its fullest.
