Laury & grandson, Finn

Tamara Rowland is a gifted teacher who offers a gleeful musical experience for children and their caregivers to enjoy together. We know we are in expert hands and that we'll be engaged the whole time. The class is well-paced and encourages an easy, enjoyable process of learning fundamental musical concepts. I wanted an activity to enjoy with my grandson so I signed up, fully intending to stop after 1 session. After 3 classes, however, I knew I'd be signing up again! We love our class so much!

I highly recommend Tamara's music classes. By far, the best  we have taken! Not only is she highly qualified in music theory, the energy she exudes, her passion and joy for music are abundantly clear from the moment class begins! Learning while playing, twirling and singing, what more could you ask for?

Karen & Charlotte

The Music Class has been a treat for our entire family. My daughter asks about music class and Ms. Tamara every day of the week. We listen to the music and sing and dance together daily, and I often hear my daughter singing the songs to herself throughout the day. As a parent, I love that Tamara is so knowledgeable about music and incorporates music theory into each class. At the same time, the classes are so fun and developmentally appropriate for children at every level. We are thrilled that we found Tamara and The Music Class!

Our love for Thrive Music Studio & for Tamara:

When your 3 year old reminds you that it's time to jump with Johnny Giraffe, give her a ride like a mummy yak or entertains herself with "pea pods pressed", you know you've hit the jackpot with a music class taught by a person who has music beating and breathing throughout every pore and a curriculum that can't be beat! 

Tamara, owner of Thrive Music Studio, puts a lot of thought into the introduction of musical instruments, theory, music and movement and note reading.

She also adds a hop-in-your-step for mommys and caregivers who attend, dedicating a special  song of the day just to them for the class free dance. (or as Malaika says,"Scarf Dance!")

I could write a page and more  for Tamara! Where do I stop?

Over the past 4 years, we’ve done early childhood music classes in Singapore, New Jersey, and now in Fort Collins. Our classes with Tamara & Thrive Music Studio are, hands down, the best of them all. The class has all the winning elements of a fun music class: egg shakers, scarves, the opportunity for the kids to play instruments, sing & dance. But what sets this class apart from all the others we’ve done is Tamara as a teacher. She is kind & encouraging to both the children and adults. She gives the children  opportunities to shine, and if a child is more reserved, she does not push them, but rather acknowledges the learning going on in their mind. I suspect this comes from her background as a music therapist, which appreciates the healing power of music. She also lets kids be kids & knows they’re learning & soaking up the music even if they’re not actively participating at that moment. It’s a wonderful & delightful class for any child. It's the highlight of our week!

Kristen & Jack

Hooray for a high quality, yet light hearted, music class! Tamara blends her great depth of musical knowledge and experience with a playful spirit and the gracious, empathetic attitude of a parent who has "been there" to create a vibrant, comfortable space. Although my 4-year-old only half-heartedly participated in class, he would sing the songs all week in between, experiment musically at home, and was disappointed if we missed a class. As Tamara says-- it's all going in there! It also was a sweet experience to have that dedicated time each week to focus on my little guy, learn something new together and also make new friends. I only wish she offered classes for older children too!  

Kelsey and Oliver

I would highly recommend Tamara’s class! She is a very talented teacher who has a passion for music. Her class is playful, fun and a perfect pace to capture the attention of a child. My 5 month old son had a blast bouncing, skipping, dancing and playing the instruments. He was entranced by the whole event!

You probably already know that THRIVE’s program has been designed to boost your child's musical development. Everything done in class is based on research that demonstrates how children learn music. One of the most important ways for your child to gain a strong foundation is to give them a large musical vocabulary and, like spoken language, if you use a large vocabulary around your child, they will develop and use a large vocabulary.

In keeping with all of The Music Class'® collections, The Dinosaur Collection features 30 original and traditional songs that incorporate music from many genres and places around the world. You'll hear folk melodies, polka jigs, swing songs, classical music, an English Carol (from the year 1609!), traditional music from Ireland, Trinidad and Tobago, and other fun styles. Other melodies include songs in major and minor keys, original chants, traditional playground/folk melodies,and use of the Lydian and blues scales. Budding percussionists will love the variety of meters in songs with duple, triple, and mixed meters. Song lyrics cover falling leaves, modes of transportation, kinds of dinosaurs, grandparent names, foods, playing outside, colors, stopping and going, instrument names, ways to move our bodies, animals (and their sounds), kitchen bands, places we visit, and bedtime. You'll have all you need to keep your family soundtrack playing in the car, at the park, at the grocery store, and even in the bathtub!

I am  excited about your decision to join THRIVE’s early childhood music classes and the strong musical foundation you are providing for your children. I absolutely LOVE seeing each of you have so much fun singing and dancing with your children every week. You are giving them an opportunity to explore challenging musical concepts while they form neural pathways and because of this, many of these concepts will not be as challenging when they encounter them later in life! 

As soon as your registration is processed, you will be able to access the music on the website and on The Music Class App. You'll also receive the songbook and CD in your first class. Sessions usually fill quickly, so if you haven't joined yet, be sure to sign up soon. I look forward to making music with you!
