Music Classes for Children

Come join us at Hands On! for our Winter Session featuring Ming’s Masterpiece. In this original program, we will go on a music-filled adventure with Ming, a young boy who discovers that the strings inside his piano are played by a friendly group of tiny animals. Featuring 12 new songs expressly written for Hands On!, the curriculum will explore the world of sound and pitch, cultivating the innate hearing abilities that only young children possess! Learn more about our curriculum and age-appropriate classes.


At Hands On! we believe in the importance of age-appropriate classes for children to fully attain an appreciation for music. Learn more about our age-appropriate classes for children ages 4 months to 5 years.

We offer music classes six days a week, morning and afternoons, as well as private lessons and birthday parties. Check our schedule and call our studio to reserve a class or event.

Hands On! A Musical Experience offers age-appropriate music classes for children ages 4 months to 4 years using a specially formatted, instrument-based music curriculum. Our classes introduce children to musical concepts, instruments and activities that enhance other learning such as the acquisition of language, listening skills, auditory discrimination, social understanding and personal discovery. Hands On! classes are designed to include music, story, movement & the exploration of various musical instruments that children can see and touch.
