We are thrilled to partner with Levine Music to host a Music Playdate with DC Moms Blog. Our playdate will be for kids ages 1-3 on Monday, January 14th at their Northwest DC Location (2801 Upton St NW, Washington, DC 20008). You are welcome to bring a baby, but anyone over age one needs a ticket. Please sign-up here. Tickets are only $10 and we only have a certain number of spots available. We can’t wait to see you there! Also, each attendee will receive a complimentary CD to play on your drive home. 


Music Classes at Levine Music

Levine Music is a well-established School of Music that has been around for over 40 years. They have five campuses around the DC Metro Area–in NW DC, SE DC, Silver Spring, MD, North Bethesda, MD, and Arlington, VA. They are a large school, but really do have a small-town feel at each location. They were founded on a love for music and right when you walk in, you know that sentiment is still there. In fact, they love music so much that they provide free or subsidized music lessons for over 650 kids around our area. If you haven’t checked them out, they are worth knowing about! It is a wonderful organization, but to me, is a hidden gem for little kiddos right in our own backyards.

Our Experience with our 2-3’s Round We Go Class at Levine Music

I will be honest, as the third child, I have yet to sign-up our youngest son up for a music class. He loves music and loves to dance–I knew he’d have fun at the Round We Go and was excited to try out a class with him. Levine Music surpassed my expectations with their attention to detail with teaching music. 

Levine Music is on a large beautiful campus with easy parking (at the NW campus). A huge win in my book! When you walk in, you are greeted by the teacher, Youlee, and enjoy a spacious, bright setting for class. We start class with the “Hello Song” with the students and their parent or caregiver. We then do various songs that engage kids. Each child takes turns participating in choosing instruments, taking turns, picking up scarfs, playing games, telling stories in song with animals, jumping, marching, etc. I enjoyed how Youlee sings songs and also plays classical music in a fun way. We sing high, we sing low, we sing fast, we sing slow–and the kids eat it up. She keeps their attention for 45 minutes of fun! I also love the end of the class, we sing our goodbye song and have a special quiet time. It is a perfect way to end class (and get the little ones ready for a solid nap). 

If you are looking for a music class for your child and as something you can do inside during the cold winters, be sure to check out all of Levine’s Classes at each location. Finding the right class for your child can be a daunting process, but when you know where to look, it feels less overwhelming! 


Music Classes for Younger Ages

As an adult, I wish I knew how to read music and play a musical instrument. Listening to, reading and performing music is almost like learning a language and is easiest when learned at a young age. Starting kids to learn to listen, hear, and later perform and work with music is a true gift to give your kiddos. Levine Music can be the place your kid(s) learn their love of music. It really is easy to fall in love with Levine and enjoy taking your kiddo here. Be sure to see the place for yourself at our Playdate

Courtney Whittington
Courtney was born and raised in Louisiana where she met her husband (married in 2005). They have moved several times, but finally feel very settled in NW DC after moving back in 2016. She has four energetic kids: Cormac (2010), Evangeline (2013), Solomon (2016), and Antoinette (2019). She thinks motherhood is absolutely wonderful, but is constantly trying to figure out how to manage it all. She spends her days talking Star Wars, playing with legos, doing crafts, having tea parties, and chasing her toddler. Motherhood is wonderful and wild and in 2017 she banded together with other mothers to start DC Area Moms to inspire, learn, and grow together. She loves morning coffee, chocolate, chatting with people since she's an extrovert, a clean house (which is rare these days). She dislikes when her kids don't listen the first time, she abhors littering, and doesn't enjoy shopping.
