How do we teach music, arts, creativity to every child at every stage??
Music and arts are scientifically shown to activate the brain more than any other activities-- So how do we do that for an infant, a very physically or mentally active child, or a child with a special need? The most dramatic effects are seen when you and your child are engaged in and producing music/arts at whatever their/your ability. This is what Kindermusik by Sally Dancy gives you...
Process based activities that are designed to meet your child at their level and in the way their brain is designed to learn.
Fundamentals presented for you and your child in a developmental, fun, supportive environment.
Exploration and practice of fine motor, gross motor, social, emotional, and intellectual skills for your child's level.
A 'no judgement zone' with our educator's knowledge and experience offered as a resource.
Themes, subjects, patterns that are cognitively consistent so your child can use them throughout their lives.
A placement based on your child's developmental and social needs as well as your comfort.
Our experienced educators providing the direction and stimulation appropriate to your child, family, and class community.
Music and other Arts naturally stimulate the brain but it takes a trained processional and a truly innovative curriculum to target and optimize the effects-- and that is exactly what you have in Kindermusik and SallyatDiscoveryMeadowStudio.

Earlier in the season the children are given an opportunity to create art work inspired by the theme including possible backdrops, props, puppets, masks used in the presentation
