Noe's Garden - Magical Online Music Class for Children aged 0 - 5
In business since September, '16
Start your young child’s day off with joy with Noe’s Garden Online Music Class! Our interactive class centers nature and connection. It’s gentle, soulful, and a whole lot of fun.
Bring your own instruments to play and sing along with beloved folk songs from around the world, as well as Noe’s nature-themed originals, accompanied on guitar, Celtic harp, and mountain dulcimer.
In addition to providing a rich musical experience, Noe’s Garden also supports children’s emotional development through story and puppet play.
Each class features an appearance by a toddler - aged puppet named Little Seal. Together, Noe and the seal talk through common toddler concerns like
“When will Mama play with me?”
"Why does the postman wear a mask when he delivers the mail?"
“Why can’t I see my friends right now?”
Using the same gentle parenting approach she uses with her own children, and combining this with the uplifting power of music, Noe offers a class experience to help families remember that whatever happens, it’s all going to be okay.
We meet online, via Zoom. All you need to join us is a laptop, tablet or phone, and an internet connection.
KIND WORDS: (Thank You!) 🙏🏼
"This is literally a heavenly gift. Noe's gentle and joyful presence is so healing to have echoing through our home. And she's so good at making sure that everyone feels seen and heard. It's pretty much the only screen time I allow my son to watch. Deeply recommend to parents who are looking for a high quality music moment for their little ones."

Your first class with us is free with code SEALLOVE. Thanks for your interest in Noe's Garden!
After your first class, we offer three ways to register:
1) Purchase the FULL SESSION ~ Works out to $20 / class
Our most cost effective option, FULL SESSION registration allows you to attend class weekly. Special added bonus - you'll also get a code to join us for as many classes per week as you like, at no additional charge!
This option is available through the secure Noe's Garden online shop, but only through Tuesday, March 30th, the day classes start. Purchase here:
2) Purchase a CLASS PACK ~ Prepay for 5 classes at once ~ $22 / class
If you know you’d like to join us for multiple classes, but aren't sure whether you'll want to attend as often as weekly, then our class pack option is for you.
When you purchase a class pack, you prepay for five classes at once at a discounted rate.
The class pack works like a credit that gets automatically applied when you register for the drop in day of your choice.
Class packs are valid for a year following purchase.

3) DROP IN ~ $25 per class, register up until the time class starts.
A flexible option that requires no commitment. With this option, you can join us for a one-off, any time.
4) SCHOLARSHIP ~ Pay what you can
If you are experiencing financial hardship right now, please fill out this form to secure a Noe's Garden scholarship.
Note: To keep the administrative load manageable for me as a team of one, scholarships are reserved for those families who would like to commit to multiple classes. (Thanks for your understanding!)
However, you may apply for a scholarship at any time, even after the session has started.
Thank you so much for supporting this offering, and letting us support you. It takes a village!
HOW TO ZOOM:
I'll be ready to receive you 5 minutes before class starts, so we can all get settled and say hello. 😊
If you've already successfully used Zoom before on this device, the software will automatically open when you click the link. If you've never used Zoom before, you'll first be prompted to download the software. This software is free, safe, and trusted by businesses around the world. (You're in good hands!)
After the software downloads, it will take you to our meeting.
You'll see a window with a green button to "Join Audio Conference by Computer."
Click this button, and that's it! You're in!
You may see yourself on the screen too, depending on whether or not your video is turned on. You can change this setting by pressing the button in the lower left hand corner of the screen, the one marked with an icon of a video camera.
Then you're good to go. ✨💛✨
IN CASE OF TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES
Always, if anything technical prevents you from joining us, whether on your end or on mine, please reach out to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I care about you, and I promise I'll always do all I can to get you sorted, including issuing any necessary refunds or credits.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF OUR CLASS
I invite you and your child to participate however you can! If you have instruments at home, feel free to use them! In particular, you might want to gather:
1) An egg shaker or shaker of your choice. (Spice jar works, too! Ideally plastic to minimize possible breakage. )
2) Something to wave. (A silk scarf, bandana, or even dish towel. Whatever you have on hand that you and your child can enjoy dancing around with.)
3) Your choice - Ukulele? Xylophone? Tambourine? Pot to bang on with a wooden spoon? Anything that can be used as instrument is welcome.
5) A lovey. There will be a moment where I put a doll to bed and sing a lullaby. Your child can rock their lovey to sleep along with me. :)
Please note: All of the instruments above are optional. You don't need to have them to participate in class, but it's fun if you do!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Can my child attend without me?
A. Yes, your child may absolutely come on their own. Most families who do this start out attending with their child, then step back once their child is used to the class.
