Early Childhood Music and Percussion

SF, Marin
Weekdays, Afterschool, Weekends

Kids are naturally musical, and it's been shown they build foundations that later translate to subjects like math by learning early on about rhythm and beats and the timing of music. (So now you have even more reason to dance-party with your kids! 🎶)

This experience is designed for young and school-aged kids just getting started with musical concepts, beyond their intuitive knack for musical self-expression. Whatever instruments you might have on hand will be utilized, and our teachers will also bring sound-makers and much joy to your home as well. Through rhythm games and clapping with sticks, copying and sing alongs, storytelling and piano exploration, kids will learn about rhythm, sound, song, and so much more. They will literally be beating to their own drums in this musical and joyous experience!

What Parents Are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.

This music experience was magic! These two young five year olds had a blast and couldn’t stop talking about the experience they had AND they learned real piano skills laying the foundation for more “lessons." I highly recommend.
