New Year Resolutions

Oh wow, how is it 2024? In my head, Covid was just 2 years ago and we are sort of back on track from where things went wonky; homeschooling my kids, flipping my business literally 7 times online, in person, outside (not necessarily in that order) and raising an infant in the mix. So many […]

So many regions have been effected by the pandemic and uncertainty of Covid, with many live performance programs being drawn to a complete stand still for nearly two years!

Covid Crash!

What a week! How often do we get to a Friday and think, well that didn't all go to plan, but some how we got through?! Parenthood is always messy, never straight forward for anyone! One of my daughters tested positive to Covid last Friday, I'm sorry to have missed you all in class! However, […]

Time to Rock n Roll!

It has been lovely meeting so many new and familiar faces this week. The children have loved our new, revised program which has been so encouraging! Our program embraces Kodaly and Orff methodology which is most perfect for young children. Why?
