Mission Statement:

Our mission is through performances and resources that children's imagination will be ignited.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: Music is a magical gift we must nourish and cultivate in ourselves and in our children. Music crosses across cultures, age groups and creates in us many feelings including joy, sadness and creativity to name a few. Music helps us relax, dance, sing communicate with others. A swag full of instruments creates a place for children to learn and become involved with the sounds of the instruments through singing, dancing, listening, prancing, marching and clapping. A Swag full of instruments exposes children to many multi cultural instruments they may not have seen or heard before.
