King Music Kids! Classes

“Music Play” for Little People has been using its “sing and play” approach in early childhood music education since 1998. “Music play” has an important role in the early musical experience for babies and young children, as it teaches them individuality and creativity.

The eight-week long sessions are divided into age categories from six months through six years and range in length from 30 to 45 minutes each. Classes meet one time weekly and are focused on bringing musical activities into the daily routines of babies and children.

Our Director, Leigh Ann Turro, received her degree in music therapy from Illinois State University.  She has been teaching and developing our classes since 1999.  Miss Leigh Ann also personally trains our other “Music Play” for Little People teachers.  Leigh Ann has over 20 years of experience working with children.  She is also the music teacher for Pre-K through 8th grade at St. Joseph School in Bradley.
