What's New

Winter Session 2020

Hello Families,

Our fall Flute session is coming to a close, and now it's time to get ready for Winter 2020 with Sticks! I am pleased to continue offering classes in Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista. And for the first time, an evening class will be offered at Giacoletti Music, our Oceanside location. I hope that you can join us this winter for lots of singing, dancing, laughing, and warm hugs. 

My deepest gratitude to all of my amazing musical famlies, and happy wishes for a holiday season filled with joy and peace.

Fall Registration Now Open!

Hello Everybody,

I hope you're all enjoying a wonderful summer filled with relaxing days. While there's still plenty of summertime to enjoy, it is also time to start the fall registration process! We'll be singing and swaying to the "Fiddle" song collection, which features some all-time favorites like "A Ram Sam Sam" and "Here is a Beehive." Plus, registered families can now download the music and access other fun content through the "Family Music Zone" on the Music Together® website. You can access the content via your Fiddle CD; on the inside back cover of each new CD booklet, there will be a unique code to allow families access to the new "Family Music Zone!"

I am looking forward to the start of a joyful semester, and hope that you and your family will come and sing and dance with our community of music makers!
