What if I'm not musically inclined?
Everyone is welcome, no music experience needed for any of our Ladeeda programs. We're focused on providing a fun and caring place to nurture children and adults in the art of confident self-expression. Our classes are about relaxing and having fun with music while connecting with your family or others in the group, if you wish.
Why do you offer infant classes? Would my child benefit more to wait until they're older and more interactive?
Every child's development benefits from early introduction to music and movement. Research tells us what we knew all along . . . early integration of singing, dancing, rhymes, stories, and of course cuddles with you (!) in your child's daily routine helps them blossom. These beautiful experiences improves their ability to think, reason, create and express. All while bonding with you!
You are your child's first and most important teacher. Our online format is thoughtfully designed to support you in bringing lovely fun, learning and interactment into your lives. Our music and movement experiences are rich and diverse with all genres of high quality music, instruments, voices and cultures selected especially for children. You'll learn over 35 songs, rhymes and dances to enjoy with your baby while creating memories together.
Who can join the family classes? Just parents, or can anyone join with a special child in their life?
Our community is intergenerational! Ladeeda Online is for any child and their siblings with their favorite grownups - caregivers, relatives, friends or neighbors. Near or far or across the world!
If you'd like to experience Ladeeda with a child who's special to you in a different household or if you're separated across the miles due to pandemic or other reasons, please contact us. We'll be happy to help you both have the music and materials so you can sing, sway and smile when you zoom, FaceTime or talk on the phone - whatever your preferred way to keep in touch. Makes a great gift idea!
I live in a different time zone or across the world. Will I miss out on much on the family classes?
Not at all! The resource library is available to access anytime during your session. We'll have occasional zoom jams but they're optional.
I'm an introvert and I don't know about these video calls. Can I join the call and just observe?
Yes! We want everyone to join in whatever way you're most comfortable! The zoom calls are optional so it's okay if you'd rather skip them.
Do you offer any discounts?
In our online family program, siblings are free when you enroll the first child.
In our online ukulele lessons, the fee is discounted 50% when you enroll with one or more family or friends - same home or different home, that's fine!
In our ukulele ensemble, we offer student and senior discounts more than 50% off.
We offer sliding fee or scholarships too, if needed. Please contact our office.
Sorry, no refunds after classes begin. Credits are only offered in special circumstances.
