Director: Ashley Moss Fox, M.M., Michigan State University College of Music

Early childhood music classes at Roberts Community Music School focus on the development of the whole child through playful musical exploration, singing, chanting, movement, listening, and using simple instruments. Each class is designed to meet the needs of the individual child and modifications are built into the curriculum to ensure that every child has the best opportunity to grow.


Musiking with Munchkins: Birth-24 months (with caregiver),

Musiking with Munchkins is a twelve-week virtual course for children birth through 24 months and their caregivers. In this course, we will sing, chant, move, and play together, exposing your infant or young toddler to a wide variety of music and music concepts. This is a foundation-building class and is very play-based.

Tuition: $100 per 12-week term.

Due to COVID-19, we will be offering these classes online only. Your registration cost includes an individual at-home music-making kit which will include all supplies that would be offered in person.
