Both of our children (3 and 4 years of age) are enrolled in the music classes and we are extraordinarily impressed with the program, level of instruction, and the school in general. The teachers are professional, warm, and our children love attending class each week. We have noticed great improvement in our children's overall ability since they have been attending the school. Much more than just a music program, these classes have developed motor skills, attention-span, and confidence. We highly recommend this program!

Customer Testimonials

We have been with Let's Play Music for over 5 years. The caring, nurturing, and amazingly knowledgeable faculty and staff have facilitated tremendous growth in our children, both musically and individually. Our children's musical ability and confidence have steadily progressed over the years, but, most importantly, they love music.

I am repeatedly amazed at how the school has the ability to meet the needs of individual students with varied learning styles and interests. In addition to all the wonderful teachers, the Latulippes are so warm and wonderful they make you feel like part of the Let's Play Music family. We are grateful to them for the wonderful experience they have given us all.


What a wonderful program! We're so happy we chose LPM. The instructors are fabulous; all accomplished musicians/vocalists in their own right. Each of them that I've had the pleasure of interacting with is also gifted in guiding and encouraging children. Your child will receive excellent instruction with their chosen instrument or vocals. They will receive positive reinforcement from ALL of the staff as well as the advanced students. Jay and Jeanne Latulippe have fostered a safe, nurturing environment embraced and employed by staff and fellow students alike.


Love my daughter's piano teacher and all the staff. I would recommend them if you are looking for a great learning environment for your kids who want to learn anything musical including vocal lessons.


My daughter absolutely loves the art program. Amazing instructors & The Owners Are Very Nice. Would Recommend For Anyone.
