About Sprouting Melodies
Founded by a leading Board Certified Music Therapist Meredith Pizzi and early intervention developmental specialist Elizabeth Schwartz, the program is thoughtfully designed to address growth and enrichment opportunities for children with varying developmental abilities and needs.
All classes are taught by Board Certified Music Therapists who have been trained in the Sprouting Melodies program and have a passion for music and for helping children reach their potential. The classes are intentionally small to support child-centered experiences. Children receive age-appropriate attention and interaction needed to develop properly. Caregivers receive the support and information they need to care and parent optimally.
Sprouting Melodies provides a positive and supportive developmental experience for children of all abilities. For those children who are meeting all of their developmental milestones, they are able to jump into the music, to explore their world and their relationships with others and each week stretch and grow into their music. Children who are receiving Early Intervention services benefit from participation and are able to address their developmental skills in a fun and natural environment. Children with delays who do not qualify for Early Intervention services are able to get the support they need in a therapeutic, but playful environment.
