Why Are The Arts So Important?
Besides the learned skills of music and dance (which is so amazing in and of itself), the arts give children so much more than that! We’ve seen time and time again improvements in children as a whole – social emotional learning, cognitive skills, empathy, team-building, reading and math skills, critical thinking, concentration, confidence and motivation…just to name a few.
Every child has a right to learn the arts, and we’re here to provide it.

Who We Serve
All children! We bring expert teachers to schools and youth organizations (onsite or remote).
We work diligently and thoughtfully with our partners to create a custom program to fit their needs and schedules.
Our program is a progressive, child-centered sequential learning program that draws inspiration from the philosophy of Orff Schulwerk and the science of Gordon Music Learning Theory. Opportunities abound for students to explore, compose, improvise, create and perform. All of our classes meet or exceed the California Arts Standards for Music and Dance.
Why The Arts?
Beyond the music and dance skills students will take with them, their increased social-emotional well being is key. The positive impact of quality music education is well-researched and well-documented – it’s baffling why it’s not taught in every school!
We also offer customized training for school administrators and staff to learn how to bring music into the culture of the classroom to help create ritual, successful transitions, community and support for students and teachers.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
As an organization, we are in a constant state of learning and reflection. We acknowledge the generational systemic injustices in the arts and take active steps to create more equitable arts education programs.

Our teachers are knowledgeable, passionate, talented, and go the extra mile to engage with every single student. Our teachers hold degrees, and oftentimes advanced degrees, in arts education.
We take the safety of our students and community seriously. In addition to going through a rigorous interview process, we also perform/require:
- Background checks
- Live Scan fingerprinting
- Adherence to the CDC’s Covid-19 mandates and recommendations
- Extensive shadowing and training with the Executive Director
- Partner assessments, which includes reviewing feedback from classroom teachers, administrators, and families
