Our Teachers

We simply love music, singing and dancing! One thing we all share in common is that we enjoy teaching babies, toddlers and grown-ups alike!

We teach our music program with a lot of joy and passion. All teachers have an educational background in music and play the guitar in our classes. We include the children with great care, heart and creativity, so that every course becomes a little event.

Our team is looking forward to making music with you and your children!
