More about Sound Start

Sound Start Early Childhood Music has provided classes to more than 1000 Philadelphia families since our classes began in 2004.

Some of our teachers have been teaching for us since the program began. Ownership has changed, however. Our classes were originally called "Little People's Music". The program was purchased by "The Music Class" in 2007. On June 1, 2017 our long-time manager, Rachel Hoffman, became the owner of the program and the name changed to "Sound Start Early Childhood Music."

Since the beginning, our program has been very intentional about the content of our classes. Our goal is to help parents enhance their child's music development during the critical first years of life. We have found The Music Class's award-winning, research based curriculum to be the most diverse, developmentally stimulating, and enjoyable curriculum available. We think you will agree!

While our focus has always been on music development, we have heard countless stories of how our classes have helped children develop social skills, motor skills, and speech skills.

We look forward to serving your family! To schedule a free observation class, call our office at 215-701-0594 or email our office at
