Our SingFirst Music and Movement program is designed for young children to participate with a parent or caregiver. Our Baby Birds classes are designed for little ones from birth to 18 months of age, and our Busy Bees classes focus on children who are 1 1/2 through 3 years of age. In addition, we offer a mixed-age option that is appropriate for all children aged 1 through 4 years old. (Infants may be present at the mixed-age class, but activities will not be age-appropriate for them.)

Our classes foster musical growth through a developmentally appropriate curriculum and provide support and connection for young families. Each class will include singing, movement, and guided play, using songs with instruments and other props designed for music learning. The emphasis is on engaging children in joyful music-making through immersion and interaction.

This spring there will be one schedule option for Baby Birds (birth-18 months) on Saturdays from 10:30-11:15 a.m. Busy Bees (18 months-3 years of age) will have two options: either Fridays 9:30-10:15 a.m. or Saturdays 9:30-10:15 a.m. The other class option is for a mixed-age class (1 to 4 years of age) held on Thursdays 4:30-5:15 p.m.

Course Policies

Attendance
It is very important that students arrive promptly for each class to avoid class disruption and lost class time.

There are no refunds for missed classes. If it becomes necessary to miss a class, please contact us and we can let you know if there is a possibility for a make-up class. If a Saturday student, for example, must miss a class, and there is space available in the Friday class, there may be allowance to switch for that week only. If there is not space, however, there will not be an option to make up the missed class.

Inclement Weather Policy

If Lawrence Public Schools close due to inclement weather, The Music Clubhouse will be closed as well. Our website will be updated in the event of a weather closing. All classes and lessons cancelled due to inclement weather will be rescheduled to the end of the term.

Parking and Music Clubhouse Entrance

The Music Clubhouse is located inside the old portion of the Trinity Lutheran Church building at 1245 New Hampshire Street. Student parking is in the east lot of the church. To access the Music Clubhouse entrance, park in the large lot on the east side of the church, walk along the south sidewalk (13th Street), and look for the Music Clubhouse entrance sign at the far southwest corner of the building. If your teacher is not there waiting for you, ring the doorbell when you arrive and listen for it to unlock for you.

FYI: There is a short flight of stairs at our entrance, so strollers will be cumbersome. If you need a handicap accessible entrance, please contact us and we will arrange an alternate entrance for you.
