the musical storytelling at Music Play Patrol

Our musical storytelling program works with libraries to provide interactive and high-quality music education sessions at an affordable cost. We are happy to announce we have resumed in-person services throughout the Philadelphia region.

During this pandemic, we need to do everything possible to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. That is why we now offer virtual services,  including Zoom classes and prerecorded digital content on our YouTube channel (@musicplaypatrol).

Our curriculum consists of interactive lessons, including Musical Storytelling, Movement Activities, DIY Instruments, World Music, African & Latin Percussion, etc. 

If you’re ready for more info, we’d love to speak to you!
