Tales 'N Tunes LLC is a new, early childhood literacy, music, and movement program for young children and their parents and caregivers. This early childhood program was conceived by Tonya Lemmons, an experienced, early childhood music educator. 

At Tales 'N Tunes LLC, we believe that parents and caregivers are the most powerful models for children learning natural language and the language of music. Also, we believe that with a developmentally appropriate, rich language and musical environment that all children can develop a disposition toward becoming life-long readers and music-makers! Why story? Quite simply, reading to and with young children helps them to learn to love reading. What makes Tales ‘n Tunes unique is that we interact with and respond to the best in children’s literature through musical play. In class we will use our voices, bodies, puppets, scarves, and child-friendly instruments to engage in musical play: chanting nursery rhymes, exploring rhythm, rhyme, and repetition through children’s poetry, and singing songs inspired by the themes in well-written, children’s stories. Through engaged, adult participation, our goal is to immerse children in a rich environment filled with the joy of story, music and movement.
