I believe Creativity is an important part of what makes us human and treasure opportunities to nurture that creativity in people of all ages.gtrcfcdc

Research shows the value of music and arts education on the development of young minds as they develop neural “superhighways” between the hemispheres of the brain.

Laura’s Learn N Play greatly appreciates the musical talents of Steve Eulberg and his lively and engaging music classes for children. Full of spirit and instrument variation, Steve’s personally written children’s music moves right to the heart of childhood adventure and compassion for others.

mdcloseup3sm“Mr. Steve teaches four classes every week for children ages two to five…He brings a variety of typical and unusual instruments to every class. His lesson are age appropriate, fun and education. His music class enriches all previous music programs we have had.” –Beth Cushing, Junior Jets Child Development Center

 

“Mr. Steve’s programs with young children are a delight.  They are engaging, interactive, and immensely enjoyable by the children themselves and their adult friends.  It is rare to find a children’s performer with both the musical and educational integrity interwoven here.  Both familiar and unusual instruments from many traditions are used to enhance both traditional and original songs and to explore imaginative sounds.

Children are encouraged to use brain and body in a unique musical experience.  They are encouraged to enjoy music in different ways; programs are an excellent mix of singing, listening, and moving.  Not only is Mr. Steve a wonderful musician, it is evident that he knows and values children as well.  I have to agree with the four-year-old who exuberantly declared at the end of a program last fall,  “That was great!” —Ilace Mears, Germantown Presbyterian Preschool, Memphis, TN

“We recommend Mr. Steve Eulberg, also know as Mr. Steve the Music man. he has been educating our young children for over a year now and the children still enjoy him immensely. He brings in and plays a variety of instrument. he sings a colelction of songs and makes funny sounds with his voice.

He is sensitive and aware of the children. He learns all of their names and puts them into unique songs. The children help him make up new songs every week. They experience rhythm and instruments, while laughing and having fun. This is a perfect educational opportunity for young children.”
