What Is Sound Beginnings?

Sound Beginnings is a family music class designed for parents with children ages 0-4. Activities foster the bonding of parent to child and give parents tools they can use to play with their young children all week long in a creative, delightful, encouraging way. Sound Beginnings was created to give children a “jump start” on music learning. It exists for parents who wants to take advantage of more of the early music window and provide structured music experiences during the flexible developmental phase of the brain.

Request A Sample Class


Sound Beginnings is a family class designed for children ages 0-4 and their parent.

The curriculum is organized into six non-sequential semesters. Each semester includes 15 sessions over a 4-month period. For more curriculum details, visit the curriculum page.

Classes are 30 minutes, taught weekly.

Each semester includes access to an original album of semester music available to stream via the Let's Play Music app, and digital download, a Student Workbook, and a quality percussion instrument (or prop). A one-time purchase of a Sound Beginnings Tote Bag is required.

The cost for materials is $35 each semester. The Tote Bag is $7.50.

Class size varies from about 5-12 children.

It has been well documented that children in group settings learn and perform better. They are more comfortable and stimulated in this environment. They thrive on the synergy and playful interaction of the Sound Beginnings class.

Parent involvement in music training is crucial. The parent/caregiver attends with the child every week and reviews class activities at home.

Sound Beginnings adheres to the philosophy that the voice is the first musical instrument. Most of class time is spent singing. The voice is trained to sing in tune, to sing naturally and openly, to sing in harmony, and to sing accompanied. In early childhood development, specific tone, placement or support instruction is not completely beneficial. Sound Beginnings is not a performing group.

Yes. Sound Beginnings is non-sequential, meaning that students can begin and end with any semester. There are no prerequisites.

Students may continue through the 4 semesters of Sound Beginnings until age 5. At the age of either 4 or 5, they may begin Let’s Play Music!

Sound Beginnings is full of songs, games and activities that expose children to important musical and preschool concepts and skills. It incorporates the philosophies of Kodaly, Orff and Dalcroze, adapted specifically for children ages 0-4. Classical music is introduced with “movement” that will forever endear children to this genre. There are numerous innovative, creative ideas for internalizing music, and ear training is emphasized from the start. Sound Beginnings is an excellent precursor to Let’s Play Music and Kindergarten.

Your child will LOVE it! You will love it because you will see him/her develop and demonstrate both musical and preschool skills. Your relationship with your child will grow as you enjoy class time and practice time together, in a playful, nurturing environment. Your outlook on playing with your child in a musical way will never be the same!
