“Music can change the world because it can change people.” ~Bono
Musically Minded has been “awakening the rhythm of life” in children ages birth-5 through meaningful interactions with music all around the Puget Sound since September 2003.
Jocelyn held her first class in the basement of the Tahoma School District bus barn in Maple Valley, Washington with just six babies and their moms. She cultivated the babies’ innate musical abilities and interests through play, song, movement and most of all, love. She knew her quest to touch as many young children as possible through music had begun.
In 2004, Musically Minded began offering classes exclusively in childcare centers and in-home daycares. By embedding this quality music-making experience into the school day, working parents can still expose their children to music without having to take away from valuable family time after work on the weekend. This offering can sometimes be the reason a parent chooses one childcare center over another.
Musically Minded has now grown to reach over 2,000 children each week and continues to grow thanks to the amazing team of teachers and partnerships with childcare providers who understand the value of music in the lives of young children.
