January 28, 2018 | 0 comments

Our family has been enjoying Prelude Music classes since we moved to Houston a few years ago.  Our older son Mattias was 3 at the time, and reveled in the wonderful instruments, songs, and dance of the Music Together seasonal collections. I was pregnant with Emilio (who is now almost two) and little did I know Emilio was attending Prelude classes in utero, absorbing it all and would later become my Rhythm Kid.
