Let's Make Music!

Making Music Academy was created as a way to connect families and bring people together after the isolation faced in 2020.


Having completed two degrees in Voice and Music Education, Owner & Music Director Terrilyn Pickett developed a music and sensory play program for infants and toddlers, aimed at improving cognitive and emotional development through music.


We've been gathering with children and their caregivers for more than a year, and we love it!


Learn, Grow, Thrive... with Music!

With hundreds of smiles, giggles, and squeals, we've been gathering with children and their caregivers for more than 2 years. And we absolutely love it!

Music Fun in our Class!

Making Music Academy Tots

Get ready to sing, move, and play with your little one by exploring, creating, and moving to music in this instructor-led class.


MMA Tots is an early childhood music and movement program for children ages 0 - 5 where babies, toddlers and preschoolers come to make music, connect and learn with their caregiver and a music teacher.

Ages 0-5

Group Music Lessons

In our group music sessions, students will meet new friends with similar interests and form new social circles.


Practicing in front of peers in group settings can empower students, boost confidence, enhance creativity, build teamwork skills, and help students work and connect with others by learning music together.

Ages 5+

Did you know?

Early exposure to music reinforces core first-year developmental milestones such as eye contact, object permanence, and bonding.


Music can help babies, toddlers, and pre-schoolers become aware of the sights and sounds around them, improving their language emergence, focus, and aural skills.

What our families say:

We love Making Music Academy! They create a fun, relaxed, and inclusive environment for ages Birth to 5 that helps children gain exposure to music and socialization with other children.


It's lovely that our boys can attend together as well (age 16 months and 3.5). And the variety of class times and locations are a perk as well. Highly recommend! 

Jill Roberts

We started attending classes at five weeks of age and watching our little girl become more and more alert with each passing week has been extraordinary.


It’s just as great for parents as it is for the kids.  Great program and highly recommended.
