About Preschool Praise
One of the newest classes offered at Create Hope Studios!This class, for 3-5 year olds, has a dual purpose of teaching basic music and songs of praise and truth from the Bible. It consists of playing age appropriate musical instruments and learning the basic scale. It includes practicing a song on the handbells for an end of the year performance. We also incorporate singing into the learning of letters, seasons, holidays, numbers, games, and nursery rhymes. During each weekly class are snacks, time on the playground, a Bible story, and on occasion, craft time!Preschool Praise meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 - 11:30 at Create Hope Studios beginning September 8th.

About Sound Start
Sound Start Early Childhood Music offers weekly classes for children ages birth to five years old to enjoy with a parent or caregiver. We feature highly trained (and fun) instructors, award-winning curriculum (created by The Music Class) and high quality instruments and props. The Sound Start program is managed by Rachel Hoffman.
In a developmental test my 6-month-old took, the doctor was pleasantly surprised he chose to shake a toy that made noise instead of just putting it in his mouth. I credit music class, as he's become so much more aware of sounds and rhythms! And my 2 year now sings all day long, I love listening outside his door when he wakes up in the morning or after nap.
Both of our children are graduates of both the Pups and Cats classes. Years later, our daughter still pines for Ponies which was for older children. Rachel Hoffman leads a group of talented musicians that will be as much fun for the parents as it is for the kids. I still listen to the music even years later, and I sing some of the songs occasionally too. I highly recommend this program!Grant G.
My son LOVES music class! He is 20 months old and has such a great time. He loves the music and sings the songs all the time outside of class. He loves to tell everyone about his class and the things he does. I knew it would be something he would enjoy because he loves music, but he is much more into it than I expected him to be! I would recommended it to any of my friends if they were looking for a music class for their kids!Melissa W.
