Equally as important is sharing enriching adventures together where you can get to know one another and bond over joint experiences. Because the parent-child relationship is one of the most important bonds an individual can have throughout their lives, it is imperative to have positive interactions and create a solid and respectful foundation.

If you or your little one is musically inclined, then Heartsong Music is an ideal option to have a bonding experience. At Heartsong Music, movement classes and music take center stage. The Music Together program is based on the belief that all children are musical and that a parent’s participation and modeling are crucial to a child’s musical growth. Because studies have shown that children learn and grow best, even musically, under playful circumstances, and in a supportive and enriching environment, Heartsong Music aims to provide learning activities that are accessible, interesting, and fun.
The Music Together classes are given using songs that are carefully selected and developmentally appropriate to help enhance the children’s breadth and quality of experience. This fun-filled music and movement program is designed for children from birth to the second grade. Each class is about 45 minutes long and enables children and parents to explore different songs, music genres, chants, and instrumental jam sessions. The courses take place weekly and are formatted to use music as a means to enhance basic life skills such as physical development, language acquisition, and problem-solving.
