“Our son had such an incredible time in his music and sensory art class this past spring season that we decided to have his music instructor (Mr Andy) and lovebug come to his 2nd birthday party. it was a blast! everyone said it was the highlight of the party. Even the adults had a great time during the performance. Mr Andy is incredible. 10/10. not only was he amazing at the party but every class was on point. and my son keeps asking to go to art and music class again so definitely going to sign him up for the next season!
