Open Studio at Pied Piper Studios
Join us for unstructured free play at our studio in Urbandale with the instruments and props you love.
Our weekly Kindermusik classes and piano lessons continue throughtout the summer, but you're invited to sprinkle extra magic into the mix by adding any of the following Summer Camps and events:
Piano Camp: Tell Me A Tale
Ages: 5 - 7 years
June 3 - 7
Fingers will be itching to weave self-generated tales at our magical golden piano each day of this truly one-of-a-kind summer music camp. You'll be amazed at how quickly and easily your young musician begins to unfold great-sounding music at the piano as we unlock real musical strategies all week long. This camp is the perfect bridge between Kindermusik and our InnerMusician piano curriculum. By week's end, students have created their very own musical storybook to share, and you'll watch your child beam with confidence as they play in our Camp Cookie Concert. Peek in along the way each day as you're invited into class for the final 15 minutes of Sharing Time.

Drop-in for playtime with the instruments and props your child loves while you catch up with friends. We'll rotate an instrument or prop from our extensive collection every 10-15 minutes and keep the tunes going.
Open Studio is a complimentary bonus to our enrolled members.

WEE & ME YOGA
locations announced three days in advance
Our super popular Musical Meetups are back this summer! While our ongoing Kindermusik classes are on break, we're bringing the music out of our studio and into a park near you. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to learn where we'll be popping up this summer. The suprise location of each Musical Meetup will be announced there three days in advance. Share the post with your friends and make plans to join us for some outdoor musical play for all ages. Bring a blanket and a picnic lunch, if you wish. These events are free and open to the public.
Wee & Me Yoga: Yoga by the Ocean
Ages: 2 - 6 years, with a caregiver
May 28 - 31
9:15-10:00am (ages 2's and 3's)
10:15-11:00am (ages 4's, 5's, and 6's)
Watch your little Yogi's eyes light up at the beginning of each class as they ring a Tibetan bell to greet the class and focus attention. Together you'll float through breath practice using scarf play to increase your awareness and enhance relaxation. Then find your rhythm with an active Yoga march – a series of “postures in motion” to warm up your bodies. Rest and read a story that introduces the theme for your posture practice and finish strong with an invitation to find your mats for a series of 10-12 yoga postures (or variations of traditional postures) before a short rest and farewell song.
No previous experience necessary. You are encouraged to bring a mat and blanket for you and your child to share.
Member Price- $74
