Welcome to A Sound Start! The UNIQUE Music & Movement classes.
Let’s spark joy and enable children to connect with their inner musician.
Music is an organic process for children, they do it by nature! We lay the foundations of a long life love for music and add the joy of community music-making.
The curriculum of the class is tailored so that each child has a unique experience -every single time- and of course, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and nanny are part of the family and join in on the fun too!
Each class is a world of discovery and adventure! You'll witness your child's developmental progress in language skills, literacy, listening, problem-solving, social skills, self-esteem, emotional connections, and musicality. And it happens within a nurturing environment; full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight.
Let the music journey begin!
A Sound Start is the perfect place where your Little Musician can begin his/her music journey. You get to learn about your child, nurture him/her as he/she grows, and connect with other supportive families, solidifying their connections in your community. The best part? After the first class, A Sound Start will become your child’s happy place!
From rocking to bouncing to dancing, we offer rich musical experiences at just the right level for your little one. Each curriculum is a unit designed to nurture language skills, social interactions, fine and gross motor skills, creativity, and reasoning, using music as the medium.
Programs that grow with your child
Our programs are created to evolve as your child develops and grows. New skills and more interaction with their peers in class, is something we see blossom right before our eyes!

Guys, if you have a toddler and you are in the Jersey City area, you have to check out A Sound Start! We have attended a few classes and Ms. Claudia does an excellent job of entertaining a variety of ages, constantly mixing things up and educating the kiddos in a fun way. She really makes the classes fun and I love how she is so in tune to not only the developmental stages of each kid but the emotional connections too!

My son Milo and I loved our classes with A Sound Start! Milo doesn’t usually sit still through much, but he was totally engaged and entertained throughout the whole program! Ms. Claudia is incredibly welcoming and such a natural with the kids.
We really enjoyed the music, props, story, and the teacher was very welcoming.
