By the Flagstaff Arts Council

Jody Laura has created a music program that introduces kids to music at the youngest of ages! This may seem like a “throw away” age for music education, but Jody is teaching kids in a way that is really making a difference and is showing all of us involved how important music education really can be this young. She has everything from newborns to 4 year olds in her classes. This past summer, Little Music Makers also offered a Big Kids Rock weeklong summer camp for slightly older kids. Through Little Music Makers of Flagstaff, she has written and developed a curriculum that changes every 8 weeks.
