MUSIC ENRICHMENT GROUPS
Due to current health and safety concerns, we will continue to offer our music groups and services online. We will also be offering a limited number of music groups in-person, with special precautions.
Thank you for making music with us at Stepping Stones KC!

WHO: Each group is led by a Board-Certified Music Therapist, who is trained to design appropriate brain-based interventions, adapt music to fit the needs of each child, facilitate healthy attachments, and build age-appropriate developmental skills! Learn more about our Therapists on the ABOUT page.
WHAT: Our unique and interactive, evidence-based programs help children to develop quality connections, while also nurturing their development. Each group is designed to address specific goal areas including communication, motor skills, academics, focus, social/emotional development, impulse control, and more. Activities may include singing, music exploration, movement/dancing, chanting, improvisation, stories, musical games, sign-language songs, instrument-play, and more!
WHERE: We do not have a centralized location. Our therapists provide music groups at many amazing locations all over the community! While many of our groups are in Johnson County, you can also find groups in Kansas City, Louisburg, Gardner, and more. We are always expanding to meet the needs of the community.
WHY: Many children love music in an innate way! Research has shown us that children also learn most effectively when they are motivated and having fun. This is why children are capable of learning so many things through exposure to music experiences. As Board-Certified Music Therapists, our teachers have been trained to design and adapt music activities to address the long-term brain development facilitating specific learning goals, milestones, behavior changes.
Stepping Stones KC music groups are each unique, individualized to fit the needs of participants in the group, and not a pre-packaged curriculum!
