Otter Pod is our no-cost early childhood music program for preschoolers.

Class description:

Otters (Pre-K) and Otter Pups (18 months – 3 years) students learn that they are already musicians; that they can already find and feel the beat, tell high from low, and fast from slow. Through games, exercises, songs, and yes — even composition assignments — learners come together to explore the primary elements of music making and notation while also discovering their own initial musical preferences and strengths.

Classes are 30 minutes long and students attend every weekday during the ten week term in Winter, Spring and Fall (along with a three week winter Holiday Term).
