About the Founder

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!

To keep your little one's as safe as possible, we ask for the time being that your POD meet in the same designated location each week.

Will the class run with less than four kids?

Unfortunately not. Our classes are most effective in groups of at least four so that the children can learn from each other.

If you or your child is sick, please let us know prior to class and do not attend. In this case, we can offer you an online make-up class.

If the instructor, must cancel class, we will meet on our designated make-up day. In the case that the instructor must cancel more than one class, we will administer refunds for each additional day missed.

Does the same guardian have to attend each week?

Each child must be accompanied by an adult, however you are welcome to have different guardians bring your child (ie nannies, family members, friends) whenever you choose. More than one adult per child is always welcome!
