The Music & Movement Center at MYAC

The Music and Movement Center at MYA Conservatory provides a nurturing musical environment for both child and adult. Musical play through singing and dancing together under the facilitation of the teacher is process oriented. Using a variety of musical styles, both live and recorded, gives the participants an avenue to express the joy of music and to explore and grow together. So get ready to sing and dance and play!

The classes are taught by Teddi Koch, an experienced, talented and creative educator, renown for working with very young children.
