  1. We just finished our first year using this program as a mid-week program for children in 1st grade - 5th. I love it! I love that it is reproducilbe, and you can customize the lessons on thier website. The kids love the music and I have to say so do I! It's easy to prep for and all you need is a few helpers depending on your group size!
