We find joy in seeing babies and toddlers develop their musical skills over time.

Shine on Kids facilitates bonding experiences through the arts

Our Story

Mami and Ima.JPG

Shine on Kids NYC was created by Miss Maria, a local Harlem mom to a 3 year old daughter. Maria is a flute player who majored in Music Education at the University of Florida and earned her Master's Degree in Childhood Education from Brooklyn College. Maria has worked as a music teacher for over 8 years and has founded elementary  music programs throughout New York City. As a working mom, Miss Maria found it difficult to find classes and events for children that fit their busy schedule.  Shine on Kids NYC runs on an alternative schedule  to give families the opportunity to bond, learn and grow together through musical experiences.
