At Kindermusik with Yulia, the staff knows that to a young, developing mind, learning an instrument means much more than exploring a new hobby. The creative playing helps the brain to create important connections and stimulate the ability to make creative decisions. Listening to music increases a child's sound discrimination, and moving develops body awareness and spatial relationships. Music lessons for children aged 0–7 help develop the brain the child will grow into. The expert music instructor creates age-appropriate lessons around different themes such as "family" or "colors and shapes of the farm."
Music instructor Ellane draws on a bachelor's degree in music education and an North Carolina teacher's license in music K–12 to familiarize children with the world of music. In her Kindermusik classes, she works with newborns, infants, and toddlers as well as children as old as 7, using age-appropriate exercises to engage and interest them. Cuddle and Bounce classes help to strengthen bonds between parents and babies, while classes for first-graders focus on teaching kids to read and compose music on the dulcimer. Although Ellane's Kindermusik classes are geared toward children, she has experience teaching students of all ages.

Turning Pointe Music & Dance is like a garden for artistic talents. Their instructors start cultivating dance students when they're just 3 years old, and as they progress, the fledgling dancers move on to more and more advanced techniques. The curriculum includes a four-level pre-professional program with technique classes that cover the finer points required of a well-rounded dancer. Turning Pointe Music & Dance's experts also teach music, and they work with adults during dance and fitness classes, such as Pilates.
Miriam Catron discovered a way to combine her love of music and athleticism—in 1997, she created Infuzion, a family-friendly center dedicated to art in all its aspects that furnishes interactive opportunities in music, theater, dance, and martial arts. Miriam selects enthusiastic and impeccably trained teachers to help students to thrive in their chosen field of study, whether they’re wielding a viola, executing a high kick, or performing a monologue on the secret lives of monologists. To round out the center's skill-instilling potential, a fitness studio hones able bodies with its arsenal of workout machines and spacious aerobics rooms that pulsate with a thunderous sound system to give soul shakers a reason to boogie outside one’s bedroom confines.
A classically trained pianist and organist with more than 35 years of experience, Fran Brar passes her musical wisdom onto students during individual and group piano lessons. Her sessions take place in her private home studio or can be held at students' own homes, lest their own pianos start to feel abandoned.
