Family Music Classes (2 months – 4 years old)

Family music classes can happen in your home, with other families, or you can join us at Hands on Drums at 600 Rhode Island Ave. NE Washington DC most Sundays at 1pm. A typical class will start with a Hello song and some other familiar songs. We then chant or sing other songs with movement props or instruments, then wind down with other familiar songs and/or lullaby. Each class with have songs in various meters (feeling in double, triple or mixed), call and response tonal and rhythmic patterns, chants, languages, movement, and a free dance. These classes are aimed to give families a wide range of musical language that can be enjoyed throughout our daily lives. Instructor Ayanna loves to bring her baby and husband along as classes are quite fun with more people!

Ayanna is the best. My daughter has taken voice lessons from her since age 12 and absolutely loves her. (Others teachers have not worked out for us for various reasons.) Ayanna has a beautiful voice, and it is a joy to listen to them singing together. She is very flexible about working with the music that her student prefers and giving advice about how to improve in addition to working in vocal exercises. My daughter plays guitar, ukele, and piano, and Ayanna is wonderful about helping her with playing her instruments along with her singing. We highly recommend her as the best music teacher ever!!!!

Ayanna is a patient, warm, friendly, and very musical and enthusiastic teacher.
I had the pleasure of having a mutual recital for both our students, and I saw how good she is with her students and how much they love her.

I highly recommend her to anyone, at all ages.
You’d be in great hands for your music journey!
