Ms. Kitty's Harmony Road

Strum, drum, hum and have fun this summer at Ms. Kitty's Harmony Road in Moss Beach and the new second location in Half Moon Bay. There really is something for everyone and every age.

What do you think when you say ukulele?  You probably conjure up grass skirts, Don Ho, coconut shell lingerie and corny songs from your grandparents’ era. But the ukulele is making the most surprising musical comeback. Not to mention that it’s unbelievably fun and easy to play.

If you need visual and auditory proof, take a quick look at the trailer for the documentary “The Mighty Uke”. And if that’s not enough inspiration to pick up a uke and strum, then check out the Creative Connections Camps this summer in Half Moon Bay for rising 1st through 6th graders (7th and 8th graders are welcome in the last two camps in August). Each camp is a unique mix of music, math and science from potions and pranks to bird brains and solar energy.

Babies through 5-year-olds can sing and dance in weekly 45-minute classes of Kids’ MusicRound.  The early years are when a child’s innate music potential is actively developing. With the KMR, parents can help bring out a child’s natural curiosity about music in a playful, encouraging class environment. It will be the highlight of your week.

For youth, teens and adults who have always wanted to sing, we have a stress-free, supportive and fun Start to Sing workshops.

And 3-year-olds to rising 1st graders get their own Spanish and French immersion mini-camps.  K.A.M.P.S. (Kids Arts Music Play Speak) starts June 13 in Moss Beach from 9:00am-12:00 noon with pediatric occupational therapist Patricia Bodas leading the Spanish sessions and native French speaker, music teacher, performer and percussionist Joss Cano heading up the French camps.

Private lessons in everything from piano and voice to woodwinds, brass, strings and percussion round out the summer offerings.

Our performance series starts in August—so stay tuned.
