Let’s Play Music offers 3 different options for music classes and there are 3 teachers in the area! (Ixonia, Hartland, and Delafield)

Sound Beginnings:
Sound Beginnings is a family music class for children ages 0-4 and a parent or caregiver. By providing a solid music and preschool foundation, Sound Beginnings prepares students for success in Let’s Play Music and Kindergarten. Classes include singing, movement, instrument play, nursery rhymes, games, stories, and ear training activities.

Let’s Play Music:
Let’s Play Music is a fun music theory course for your child which begins at age 4-6. This three year program solves the problem that a child is most ready to learn music at an early age, but his fingers and letter skills are not yet ready. We take full advantage of the brain’s ability to absorb musical concepts and teach skills in an age appropriate way. Solfege hand signs, folk songs, games, imagination and creativity are important components of each lesson.

Presto is for the beginning pianist, whether they have had a year or so of piano lessons or no piano lessons at all. Presto teaches so much more than piano! We teach COMPLETE musicianship: vocal training, ear training, sight reading, music theory, rhythm, music history, proper piano technique, and we do it in a fun, snappy style that tweens love! Most likely, those students who already have had a year or so of piano haven’t studied all areas of music. In fact, they most likely have only dabbled a little in rhythm, have some note reading skills, and developed some finger strength. We include an optional “challenge” section written into the Presto curriculum to satisfy the appetite of hard working students and that of students who already have finger dexterity built from previous piano lessons.


Lake Country Strings

is a string studio that offers Suzuki violin, viola, and cello private and group instruction for any student between the ages of 3-adult. Through the study of music, we partner with parents and students in seeing growth in the life skills of collaboration with others, confidence in performance, focus, concentration, fine motor skill development, and freedom in personal expression. Students receive instruction that encourages them to share their music with family and friends while parents enjoy convenient scheduling options. Contact us today!”
