Exceptional Explorers Classes

Spring registration is now open! Click here for all class registration options!

Music with Michaela is a baby & me class designed for baby and parents, grandparents, caregivers, or friends. We sing seasonal songs, move our bodies to the music and explore instruments. You hear familiar songs and learn many new ones as we build a fun repertoire of songs you can incorporate into your family life.

Families are asked to bring their own instruments (shakers, tambourine, drum, whatever you have at home!) and we will be spaced 6 feet apart to assure our safety and comfort. 

Class has exclusive use of the space for the entire duration from 9:00am – 10:30am. Open Play 9:00am – 9:45am, Class 9:45am – 10:30am

Michaela has been teaching children’s music for 13 years and designed these baby and me classes after having her own daughter. What started as a virtual Baby & Me class during the pandemic winter has turned into 4 private weekday pod classes & a public class in Montclair, NJ servicing over 60 families weekly. It has been an exciting culmination of Michaela’s life’s work thus far as an educator, musician, songwriter, performer & mama.
