Parenting can be overwhelming!

gaining powerful parenting tools in minutes a day...

...WITHOUT spending a ton of money?

There's a simple solution...

AND it's right in your own home! 

My husband, twin boys, and me (feeling sleep deprived)

Music can help you connect emotionally with your child while 

nurturing their full brain development!

I challenge you to think again.

You. can. do. this!

Between birth and 5 years old, a child's brain develops more than at any other time in life.

We can't let this time slip away!


  • A critical period of learning occurs before kids even reach "school age"

  • 90% of a child's brain is developed by age 5

  • Every new experience creates new brain connections (learning)

  • Repeated experiences strengthen these connections

  • Social experiences have a profound effect on brain development and future learning capabilities

  • Healthy loving relationships are foundational for your child's brain development & emotional expression

  • Interactive and emotive experiences have the most impact on a child's development

  • A secure attachment increases the likelihood for improved behavior and increased language learning 

  • Engaging in music significantly increases "brain connections", possibly warding off conditions like ADHD
