Wee Bop - Spring 2020 Classes

Family Fun, ages 6 mos-5 yrs

Siblings can have a fun and active class together!  Your teacher makes sure your family has the best possible experience and the class is age-appropriate by giving options for those content in a lap and those ready to move on their feet. Activities promote the development of small motor skills through playing egg shakers, rhythm sticks, guiros, jingle bells and drums, and large motor skills through dancing, hoops, scarves, ribbons and action songs. Kids are also socializing and sharing. Plus the bonuses of having a GREAT time as a family and with new friends.

Sibling 5 months or younger attend for FREE!

  • Fridays 9:30 AM - Ms. Emma
  • 45 minute class, 6-week session
  • REGISTRATION & TUITION - $99, Sibling Rate - $66(for older or younger sibling or twin)

FIRST CLASS: Friday, April 10

LAST CLASS: Friday, May 15th 

After sampling multiple toddler music classes, I found Wee Bop's to be the most engaging, thoughtful, and responsive to the needs of the children. I love how the teacher let's children explore real instruments, it was so refreshing! We were also pleased that the class was the most affordable of the 4 organizations we were considering! -JB, parent
