It’s that time of year again!
We’ve got your summer covered this year!
From Village classes to Family Time to Sign & Sing, there is something for everyone!
For newborn through 18 months:
Set your baby’s day to classical music. With a little more Tchaikovsky in your “Twinkle, Twinkle” repertoire, you’ll discover new ways your baby benefits from the classics as you both develop an appreciation for the world’s most respected music. Each lesson features new activities and songs you can sing for all the places you go together – the store, the playground, the doctor, and more!
Take-Home materials include a Home CD , a baby board book (pictured above), a parent poster, and a beautiful, wooden cage bell especially for your little one. This is a 5-week session with 45-minute classes. For specific days and times, please check our Class Schedule.
We are also offering an evening class this summer:
A different approach from other sign language programs. Through songs, toys, and loving playtime between you and your child, Kindermusik Sign & Sing shows you more than 50 signs your child can use to communicate with you. Using research-proven methods shown to speed language development in hearing children, you’ll see how sign language can ease frustration and enhance long-term learning abilities for your child.
In only five weeks, you will learn the ASL signs that are most useful to you, and most interesting to your child. So playtime and everyday items around the house—ball, bubbles, mom and dad—become the objects of learning in the classroom, and sign language becomes a natural, happy part of your child’s day. This is a five-week session with 45-minute classes for both parent and child.
At Home materials include a Family Activity Guide, a DVD glossary showing 60 signs, and a set of clip-on flashcards that feature both children and adults using family-friendly American Sign Language signs.

For ages 18 months to 3 years:
Creatures in My Backyard
Children are naturally curious and delighted by the world around them. Creatures in My Backyard encourages you and your child to explore your environment and make new discoveries. Through music, movement, storytelling, and instrument exploration, your child will uncover the creatures living in her own backyard – from birds, turtles, squirrels, and rabbits to flowers, caterpillars, and bumble-bees!
Your child will experience Nesting in a Tree, Digging in the Dirt, Flying to a Flower, Hiding in the Grass, and Sitting on the Porch. So put on your sandals and join us for a backyard adventure!
At Home Materials include a Home CD, a set of 5 Picture Folders featuring the animals in the activities, a plush Bunny hand puppet and a Ladybug Jingle or Snail Shaker (not pictured).
We have two different types of sessions offered of Creatures in My Backyard this year. Thursday afternoon sessions at 5PM are 45 minutes long. Saturday morning classes at 10:30AM are full camps – 90 minutes in length, including crafts and appropriate snacks. Parents attend the entire class for either time slot. Both are 5-week classes.

Our Family Time class will also celebrate the wonders of Creatures in My Backyard. Give your children something to sing about in their own backyard. Be the flower from the “seed’s” perspective. Run and jump in rain puddles made from hula hoops. Snack on whole wheat mini-waffles dipped in honey, just like a real honeycomb. Shoo real flies and sing “Shoo Fly.” All this and more!

Masterworks Studio is also proud to offer
We have two different classes this summer – one for ages 18 months to 3 years and the second for 4 to 6 years of age.
Ages 18 months to 3 years will have a bubbly good time in Splash! Your child will learn the difference between smooth and bumpy by listening, singing, and playing instruments in smooth and bumpy ways. This paves the way to learning musical terms and concepts such as legato and staccato.
He will pretend to hike, picnic, and explore outdoors and then he will slow down, listen to soothing music and practice relaxing both mind and body. Your child will count to three, tap three times, strike a drum three times, and listen to words repeated three times. Splash! also helps build social skills and enhance growing vocabulary. Classes for this four-week session are 45 minutes long with the parent or caregiver attending the entire class.
At Home materials include a full color Family Activity Guide, a Home CD which includes all the songs from class and a narration of the storytime, and a colorful beachball that will add some summer fun to your home activities.

With Irish music as your guide, your 4 to 6 year old child will go over and Under the Rainbow as we explore all the up and down sounds that music can make. A mischievous leprechaun will keep us on our toes, as we learn about musical notes and concepts. Sounds that go high and low, and slide up and down the musical scale, just like a ride down a rainbow! We will learn about instruments from slide whistles to trombones, piccolos to bassoons, even clarinets. With colorful scarf play, every eye will be an Irish one, and smiling and learning. Classes for this four-week session are one hour long with the parent attending the last 15 minutes of class.
At Home materials include a full color Family Activity Guide, a Home CD which includes all the songs from class and a narration of the storytime, and a harmonica to share the music fun at home!

For ages 5 to 7 years, Masterworks Studio is very proud to offer “Tell Me a Tale”, a week-long Adventure experience in multicultural storytelling.
Through storytelling, your child will develop an early awareness of rhythm, movement, singing, and drama. Each lesson features a new tale from around the world, explored through multi-instrument and multi-cultural elements. All told, it’s an around-the-imagination adventure of the greatest stories from Europe, Malaysia, South Africa, and more.
Stories in this camp:
European Bremen town musicians
A Malaysian tale about a small deer who outsmarts a crocodile
A story of six blind men and an elephant from India
A Lazy Jack Appalachian folk tale about a kid who matches the wrong solution to his pocket problem
A Zulu tale from South Africa about a woman who rides a turtle to the bottom of the sea to find stories to tell her children
At Home materials include a Home CD of multicultural music, hardcover book of the folk tales (pictured above), arts and crafts, snacks, a parent poster, and colorful hardwood lummi sticks.
This camp is a daily camp (Monday – Friday) for one week, lasting two hours each day with the parent attending the last 15 minutes of class.
