We’re so happy that you and your family decided to join our music classes. At A Brand New Beat, our music classes help you create a life-long impact on your child’s musical development.

Research shows that early childhood is the window of opportunity to increase the lifelong music aptitude of a child. Our music classes capitalize on this critical time period. Classes at A Brand New Beat afford children and parents of Perth County the opportunity to cultivate a love of music making together.

At A Brand New Beat our goal is to provide quality programs in the Perth County locations of Stratford, St. Marys, and Mitchell. Our programs are fun, interactive, educational, and affordable. While we take our goal of educating children very seriously, we know that the key to success lies in one word—fun! Classes are energetic and fun ensuring that everyone has a great time in class.

Teachers Kendra Pearson and Tanya Ross are specifically trained in the programs that they teach, in addition to their musical qualifications as Certified Teachers with the Ontario College of Teachers and a combined twenty years of experience teaching abroad and within the Avon Maitland District School Board. They love to help children learn and achieve age-appropriate goals.
