Our library programs are designed for children ages 1-7. As with all of our lessons, every participant will have the opportunity to play instruments, including professional instruments, every session. What makes our program unique is that we give you a variety of program options, or we can customize a program that fits with a theme or curriculum you provide.

Every Music Play Patrol lesson is designed to have three components:

1. Movement Activity (Physical Activity/Dancing)

2. Education/Musical Storytelling Activity (Instrument Discussion)

3. Hands-on Activity (Learning through play)
