JPAS JR.

Our JPAS JR series is geared toward children 3 – 6 years and is designed to get their feet moving and their imaginations flowing all while teaching skills and building confidence. Learn the basics in a fun, safe, and nurturing setting intended to unleash the little theater bug in the youngest of children.

If your child is interested in visual arts, we have inspiring, engaging small group art classes children 5 and up as well. Click here to learn more.

Go on a musical adventure every week with Avra and her ukulele. Each class takes the form of a musical story, during which preschoolers sing, move to music, read musical notation, learn Italian musical terms, develop appreciation for classical music, and grow awareness of pitch, tempo, and dynamics – all while having so much fun, they don’t realize they are learning. The last week of class is a showcase in which family and friends are invited so children can demonstrate all they have done and get a chance to shine.
