One of the world's leading producers of music and movement programs for children, Kindermusik by Love and Grow Music Studio runs classes and camps that children participate in with the support of their parents. Wee ones from newborns to 7-year-olds learn to sing, dance, and even play an instrument or two, and available take-home materials, such as song books and CDs, enable education to continue at home. Regularly scheduled playdates provide an excellent trial lesson, and with a group of at least six parent-child duos, groups can arrange their own musical party with a theme of their choice, revolving around anything from numbers to the intricacies of particle physics.
