The Zumbini® program is a child-focused journey into the world of music, movement, and dance, and the natural response music provokes in both children and adults. A Zumbini® class is a celebration of the power of music to enhance our lives, stimulate learning, inspire dance and movement, and strengthen the bond between parent and child. The Zumbini® program draws upon the natural link between music and movement.
Music is inherent. We all have music in us! Children are born with musical aptitude. If they are not exposed to music at an early age, this aptitude can diminish. The Zumbini® format helps them tap into this element. They learn to feel the music, feel the beat, and feel free to express themselves. This makes learning with music a natural process.
The primary goal, or heartbeat, of the Zumbini® program is to introduce young children to music, movement, and rhythmic musical instruments. While we may think that only a select few have musical ability, in fact, only a very small, select few don't. We just need exposure. For a child, this exposure is best in the form of play, and that is the environment that the Zumbini® class creates.
The Zumbini® program is a "whole child" music and movement education program, unique in its design to build positive associations with living a musical lifestyle at the earliest possible age, with attention focused on social, emotional, cognitive (mental), motor, and language development. Music and movement experiences also help develop both sides of the brain, an important finding in recent research.
Fundamental to the program philosophy, the Zumbini® program does not impose upon participants any specific, measurable goal outside of the most basic program intentions: joyful participation!

Beginner level classes are perfect for first-time musicians. Students will learn the basics of instrument and musical theory.
Intermediate classes build off of the skills acquired in the beginner class. Students will continue working with their instrument and reading music.
Advanced classes are for students who have been playing consistently for over 5 years. Miss Lauren provides guidance where needed, but students can direct the class where they need it.
Miss Lauren offers a 15 minute FREE meet & greet for all new students to assess their level of musical competency.
Performance coaching can cover a variety of areas, including but not limited to audition preparation, dialect coaching, Shakespearean text analysis and performance, public speaking, and speeches.
Sessions can be books with regular frequency, or as a cluster of sessions reflective of the urgency or timeline for your event/performance.
Miss Lauren also offers apprenticeship roles through her theatre company The Shakespearience Group for young actors wishing to delve into the world of Shakespeare in performance. For more information on these summer roles please email Miss Lauren directly, or visit The Shakespearience Group online.
