"If we ever try to have a circle time at a program my son gets upset. My husband was there today and I expected the two of them would have to walk around the venue during the circle time. But guess what? My son sat through the whole thing and LOVED it!"

Frequently Asked Questions

How would I choose the best program for my child?

We recommend registering for either the four-week intro or the full program that matches your child’s age group. During your first class, you and your instructor will be able to see whether another group may be a better fit. If so, we’ll help transition your family to another group!

What class should I choose if my child would be changing age groups during the 6 months?

A child can change age groups at any time during the year as long as there is space in the next class up. If the next class has no space, your child can stay in their current class and will continue to learn new concepts until there is a new open class!

I don’t consider myself a musically-inclined parent. Should my child have any prior exposure to or experience with music for this program?

The short answer: No! The long answer: this curriculum is uniquely designed to be accessible and relatable to every family, whether your child has never tried to dance before or loves to sing but has no rhythm. Music is just another form of creativity and expression that anyone can participate in! We use every-day sounds and movements to introduce new concepts.

Are parents required to attend the classes?

The parent-child relationship is a critical part of your child’s development, so our curriculum is built with this in mind. Parent attendance is required for ages 0-4, and each class can accommodate one parent per child. For ages 4 and up, the Pandas class is drop-off only.

Is it better for my child to do the class with one parent/caregiver through the full program, or should they be able to experience it with each parent/caregiver?

For the best experience, we recommend that the same parent/caregiver attend the class each week. It’s beneficial for everyone when the parents and children get to know each other as they come regularly; it builds community and makes the children feel more secure. Your child may behave differently with a different caregiver, which is completely normal. If a different caregiver needs to come on occasion, be sure to fill them in on the other adults and children, and what you’ve been learning in the class!

Is this Kindermusik certified or is it a different program?

The Musical Safari is a different program. We were a certified Kindermusik studio for over three decades, but due to the high cost to families and the content becoming less engaging, we decided to create and teach our own program. We want families to have a more enjoyable and cost-effective experience. The instructors who teach the classes and helped create the Musical Safari all hold Kindermusik certification, and have many years of experience with the Kindermusik curricula. Some have even owned their own Kindermusik studios abroad. In short — you're in good hands!

Is registration a mandatory year-long commitment?

It’s up to you! When you register, you have the option to pay $85 monthly for the length of the program OR pay $495 for the entire program. The one-time annual price includes a $100 discount!

What is your withdrawal policy?

You may withdraw with two weeks' notice before the end of a month to cancel your attendance and billing, however annual payments are non-refundable. You can read our full Terms & Conditions upon registration or at this link.

Our child isn’t due until later this year/next year, can I join part way through the program?

Of course! Whether you’re looking to start with your child as soon as they are one-month-old, or you know you want to wait until they are three or four months old, you can join when it makes sense for your family. The program is designed with multiple four-week themes, so when you register, you can sign up to join in at the beginning of the next four-week theme.

It’s time for music education to be centered on fun and designed for real families.
