“Having Daveena in music has been a blessing in disguise. She loves to sing and dance and this class has helped her express herself. She sings the songs from music we have learned at home, all the time. I enjoy the classes just as much as she does…it gives us parents a chance to sing and dance our little hearts out as well. The one on one time with her in that class is amazing and watching her and her little friends grow from this class has been wonderful. I look forward to the family class now, so I am able to enjoy this class with both of my girls. Thank you for this amazing experience for us all Crystal. Look forward to seeing you in the fall.” – Raj
“We LOVE music class with Crystal. She is such an engaging and vibrant personality, my kids just adore her. The classes are well thought out and have a different theme each week, including a combination of songs the kids already know along with something new to keep things interesting. It’s obvious that Crystal loves to be around the kids -she even learnt my son’s favourite song on the piano at our last class, just for him, which he thought was so great! Thanks Crystal!” -Laura
“Joining your music class was one of the best choices I made for both Hunter and myself. It is such a positive environment for the little ones to express themselves. The new songs they learn and the instruments they play are changing and its always exciting entering the building…..” – Nichole
