    Thank you so much for the love! Darrin’s Coffee loves da’ kids!! We have a bunch of donated recorders and if we can find a brave, paitient, soul to teach, we’d welcome hosting the classes!

    Have you visited my Music Circle?! Mrs. Ashley’s Music Circle meets Tuesdays 10:30-11:10 at Union Jack Pub in Broad Ripple. No entry fee for the class with a donation of pads or tampons for the non-profit Support the Girls-Indy. My secular music and movement program is geared for children ages 0-4. Early learning concepts are embedded into the fast-paced, interactive Music Circle. Our song line-up, skilled instructor, and activities rival the local, high-priced preschool music classes. No commitment. Come once or weekly. See the joy of music fill your child’s eyes.

    What about Music Together classes? We’re moving to Indianapolis from the East coast where Music Together is the staple for early childhood music. I see a few classes are offered in the area, but you don’t mention them here.
