Not all kids who receive music training will become musicians. But every child who does will see improvements in cognition and emotional growth that are permanent whether they continue their musical activities for six weeks or six decades.

This makes early childhood music education one of the most effective ways to invest in a community’s long-term health and success.

Become a Pod Squad Member!

There’s a reason why we “play” instruments.

Play, and the fun of music making, is at the heart of our no-cost Sound Scholars™ program. So each of our learning levels, or Pods, is associated with a Hood Canal animal that uses play as a primary method of learning. We call the special membership program that makes this program possible the Pod Squad!

Become a Pod Squad Member and keep our beat steady!

By becoming a member, you make it far easier for us to plan our programs and chart our growth. Even better, the benefits for members are numerous — see what each membership level receives in return below!
