Guitar, banjo, or ukelele. Drums, piano, or bass guitar. Your own vocal chords. These are a few of the instruments that students master at Prodigy Studios. Music lessons carry kids at their own pace through the ins and outs of each instrument. The instructors also prove their expertise in repairing, re-stringing, cleaning, and otherwise servicing guitars as well as tuning pianos. Those who want to hear music without making it themselves can inquire about Prodigy's DJ services.
It's said that music builds neurological pathways in the brain like no other experience. The co-owners of Sing N Move, Miss April and Miss Lena, facilitate this firsthand every day during their Kindermusik classes, which help boost brain function through musical exploration.
Kids not only stretch their creative muscles, but also their actual muscles—the classes challenge fine motor skills by encouraging tots to play instruments and bop along to the beat. Miss April and Miss Lena have even taken their own children to Kindermusik classes and have seen them blossom there, which is why they opened their studio in the first place.
