Developed by internationally renowned music educator Lynn Kleiner, Music Rhapsody, as part of our Mommy & Me program, echoes the foundations of the Montessori method. Music is natural to kids, and Music Rhapsody embraces that ethos by instilling a love for music that will last a lifetime. Music Rhapsody is a free, fun time for parents and children to experience the Montessori philosophy of education in action. Take a look at the flip cards to learn more about Music Rhapsody:

A Love of Music

Creating Musicians for Life!

Lifelong Appreciation

Music Rhapsody nurtures a deep love of music by providing a fun, age-appropriate environment for children to express their natural musical tendencies.  Each age group will have different instruments and activities.  As they grow with the program, the level of difficulty will increase, but their joy for music will, too.

Real Instruments

Because Real is Better!

No Toys Found Here

Younger children will play with quality instruments like glockenspiels, xylophones, and percussion instruments that are developmentally appropriate.  Older kids can begin Simply Piano, a form of instruction that is play-based and internationally renown.  To leave our site to learn more about Simply Piano, click here.

Fun Yet Instructive

Music Immersion = Natural Development

Learning Made Fun

Based upon the proven  “Orff Schulwerk” methodology, our children will be immersed into music they will love.  Diving right into real music keeps attentions while providing a structured environment for them to learn.  To read more from the Lynn Kleiner’s website, click to go to their FAQ page.
