ume ume + umbini (for children ages 6 months – 2½ years).

The Ume Ume + Umbini program is designed to let adults and their little ones wiggle, sing and learn together, for the ultimate bonding experience. Ume Ume + Umbini combines both classic and modern children songs under the ume ume music + arts learning approach, as children along with their caregivers participate in song, story, creative movement, world rhythms, instrument play, and various art activities. Each semester focuses on a particular theme introducing children to academic content and a variety of musical genres such as: Classical, World, Pop, Rock, Broadway, and Children songs in a fun, exciting way while promoting healthy living and social development.


ume ume tots (for children ages 2 – 4 years).

The ume ume tots class will develop language and artistic skills to build the foundation for the growing toddler. The semester theme enables children to experience a structured and focused learning approach integrating the arts and nurturing each child’s self-expression.

Storytelling is implemented in each lesson and offers children the invitation to be actively involved: to look, listen, and communicate by asking and answering questions about the story. Through story telling children strengthen their vocabulary, content knowledge, as well as introduce them to basic elements of a story (i.e. characters and setting).

Our ume ume tots program’s aim is to develop and refine the toddler’s fine and gross motor skills is exercised through various activities such as singing, shaking maracas, dancing to a rhythmic pattern, or painting a picture. Children enjoy producing sounds on instruments like the recorder, guitar, violin, and finding their own VOICE! Children also learn about the basic elements of art (line, shape, color, texture, and form) through activities that encourages the child’s own creative expression and enrichment.

The collaborative setting of our ume ume music + arts classes is beneficial to the developmental and creative process as we encourage and promote children to interact with both their peers and caregivers in a safe, creative, and entertaining learning environment.


ume ume kiddies (for children ages 3½ years – 7 years).

Ume ume kiddies is our ume ume music + arts program intended for the maturing child between the ages 3 ½ - 7 years. During story time, children build on content information and develop inquiry skills. Ume ume kiddies make self-to-text connections while increasing both verbal and language skills.

Children familiarize themselves with classical, popular, and original music and songs, as well as experiment changing the “tones” of different instruments like the guitar! In addition, our ume ume kiddies study choreographed movement and dances and explore new art techniques and tools to produce works of art.

The collaborative setting of our ume ume music + arts classes is beneficial to the creative process and establishes a “classroom-like” routine for the child. The collaborative setting of our ume ume music + arts classes is beneficial to the creative process as the children inspire one another through verbal and non-verbal communication.
