Popular Library Programs

Kids Playing Drum

Djembe - African Drum Circle

This program gets both adults and children up moving and dancing to the beat! Children learn about African drumming and play an authentic African djembe. During the session, children will play hand drums, sing songs, and end the session with a traditional African dance circle.

Girls Students Bucket Drumming

Bucket & Recycled Instruments

Children learn how to make music and play rhythms using buckets and other recycled items found around any home. This program teaches children creativity and how to make music from ordinary objects.

Children explore and make music using a theremin, an instrument that can be played without any physical contact. Children will also play other unique sounding instruments like boom whackers and the didgeridoo.​

Walking Piano

Playing the piano can be lots of fun, but playing using your feet can be even more exciting. Children will learn how to play songs using an oversized piano mat synthesizer.

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 Learn Listen Play 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)
