The Singing Tree

Music and Movement for Children (Birth - Age 6)

The Singing Tree is a joyful, fun-filled music and movement program for the preschool child and parent. This program is based on family interaction and participation and has been offered in the Waukesha area for over 20 years. The Singing Tree uses a research-based curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for the learning styles of young children. Classroom music and movement activities encourage your child's vocal, rhythmic and tonal development, growth in language skills, auditory discrimination and memory skills, small and large motor skill development, and more!


Family Classes are available for those families who would otherwise need child care in order to participate. See the Brochure for details!


Classes are available in Waukesha for children from Birth through age 6 years old. Each semester encompasses 13 weekly classes and ends with a family musical celebration.


Our Fall classes begin in September and Spring classes in January.  Our 2014 Summer Camp will be held in June.  Please click on the Summer Singing Tree Brochure at the top right of this page for details.
