Infant and Parent Class (birth – 9 months)

We are all born with a natural curiousity for sound and music. Research shows that early active musical participation in infancy has numerous invaluable benefits.  This class is designed to teach parents how to connect with their infant through music and learn how to support their musical development right from birth.

"Anita has been an amazing inspiration for our child. Our daughter is new to piano and Anita has been patient and kept our daughter's interest high during her piano lessons. We look forward to many more years to come with Anita."


Our music class at Music for Life is something my 1 year old son and I look forward to each week. He is filled with smiles and enjoyment as we sing, dance, move, and play instruments. Anita is so personable, energetic, knowledgeable, and patient. The space is warm and welcoming."



Waterloo, Ontario Canada

I have been going to the mixed ages class with my daughter for 2 terms now, and we both have loved it! Anita is such a wonderful teacher and I have noticed my daughter connect with music so much more since starting. It has also helped my not so musically talented self feel more confident!"
