Instructor and certified music therapist Michelle Lawrence cradles developing minds and the parents who love them in sonorous tuneage to aid early development. As the minds of mini Mozarts and David Lee Roths-to-be soak up knowledge and engage with instruments, songs, games, props, dances, and books, parents can play along in class and continue lessons at home, where kids can take turns teaching the fundamentals of Brussels-sprouts-refusal and the gambling rules of Go Fish.
Although Prelude Music sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still represents the best available deal.

Creative expression starts early at Prelude Music. The instructors here lead music classes for babies as young as 6 months—helping them create music alongside parents through singing, chants, instruments, and other tools. Each passing melody builds core skills (both mental and physical), and as musicians grow older, so does the curriculum. These Melodies & ABC’s classes transition into one-one-one lessons in piano, guitar, voice, and music theory.
All of these programs are guided by experienced instructors, who hold more music degrees and certifications than you could shake a maraca at. Their ranks even include therapists, who use music as a way to bolster mental and physical health.
