Yes! Mind Body Music makes a personalized playlist and musical games based on your little one’s theme. It takes the same exciting structure as our classic music classes, but adds even more fun activities, props, and birthday magic! We come to you anywhere in or around the city so that your guests and little ones can enjoy everything the party has to offer all in one place.
Olivia Rubbo is a professional singer and actor with a background in Musical Theater. On top of performing regionally and throughout New York City, she has worked with children for over 10 years teaching music and movement classes, and taken courses on children’s music development.
Olivia quickly recognized the positive impact music can have on young lives. Along the way, she discovered the importance of creating a healthy outlook on life and saw first hand how this can reduce stress and improve mental and physical health. She saw a unique opportunity to establish a program that not only inspires musicality in children, but uses it to incorporate tools at a young age that teach them how to be grounded, grateful and present. Olivia brings her goofy self to each class, and gets such joy from creating a safe space for all people to explore their innate capacity for music and mindfulness!
