Meet us where music is joy


The Brookfield Academy for Mini Musicians (formerly Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians) brings joy into the lives of little ones by way of classes designed to introduce children to music.

Learn and musically engage with your child in the “caregiver and me” classes for the really little ones, and let them hit their musical stride in the drop-off classes.

Munchkin Maestros (Four to 18 months) is designed for infants in the pre-verbal stage to connect with their caregiver by way of music. Introduce your little one to shaker eggs, rhythm sticks, the triangle, and more.

Mini Maestros (1.5- to 2.5-year age group) is designed to teach kids how to hold a steady beat, act out words to songs, and sing and dance to songs that they create.

Merry Maestros (Two- and three-year-olds) is a class for children to express their creativity through music and movement. Musical games and instruments are introduced in this class with a one-of-kind curriculum.

Mighty Maestros (Three- to five-years olds) learn note reading and new musical skills that they can show off in Parent Showcase performances! Kids “graduating” from Mighty Maestros will be more than ready for instrument lessons (if they choose).

This premier music academy for kiddos in the Chicagoland area is a joyful learning environment for little ones and caregivers alike. Students come from all over the area, including Brookfield, La Grange, LaGrange Park, Elmhurst, Riverside, North Riverside, Berwyn, Chicago, Oak Park, and River Forest.
