Half-Pint Harmonies

Various Locations around the Triad
Colfax, NC 27235
United States

Half-Pint Harmonies began during the Winter of 2016 in High Point, North Carolina.  Our mission is to bring parents and children the most rewarding early childhood musical experience possible.  We know that materials created by The Music Class, Inc. meet these needs and we think you will feel the same too!  In a 45-minute class, families will experience a wide variety of musical styles, tonalities, and meters.  All in a high energy and super fun environment! 

Our teachers are highly trained musicians with backgrounds in music, theater, and education.  Half-Pint Harmonies teachers are fun-loving, energetic and knowledgeable about early childhood development and how it pertains to music class.  We meet the students where they are and teach the parents how to model and further the activities at home.  Researchers have documented that exposure to music in early childhood has a positive effect on the brain and that the earlier you start, the better.
