Open Studio is open to the public and no reservation is needed. Cost is flexible and up to you. Pay-what-you-choose at the door via Venmo, cash, or check to help us keep Open Studio accessible for all families and sustainable for our studio.

What to Expect

We are located in Jesse Place Shopping Center at 3892 NW Urbandale Drive, Urbandale IA.
Look for us next door to Iowa Ballet Academy. Our logo is on our front door. We do not have a large overhead sign on the building.

  • Kindly adhere to our Community Health Agreements and only attend when you and your child are well.​

  • When you arrive, remove your shoes and leave them in the lobby. Sock-feet and barefeet are welcome in our classroom.

  • You can use our Venmo account (@piedpiperstudios) or drop cash/check in the amount of your choosing into our secure lobby lockbox. Cost is flexible and up to you, according to your resources.  

  • No food or drink is allowed in our classrooms. Please keep snacks and drinks in the lobby.

  • A variety of items will be available for you and your child to explore at your own pace. Our teachers will periodically switch out these items during the course of Open Studio as interest indicates and in coordination with the ages of the children present. Please do not remove instruments or items from our shelves, walls, or storage bins. If there is an item you and your child would like to explore, ask one of our team members.

  • All instruments are cleaned and sanitized between uses by our team.

  • Diapers, wipes, and period products are freely available in our restroom for you to use as needed. Please let us know if something needs restocking.

  • Supervision of your child is required.  

Please note: Open Studio is a time for drop-in style open play and is not a curricular music class. If you're interested in joining us for our class experience, we'd love to include you in our singing circle!
