Naptown Sings…and Plays!

We have one main goal: to make music fun and inspiring for people of all ages, abilities and financial situations. Music lessons often get a bad rap for being boring, stuffy, and sometimes uninspiring. At Naptown Sings…and Plays! our teachers are upbeat, keep it fun, and cater to the interests of the students, all while ensuring a high-quality music education for all. Located in the heart of Annapolis we strive to be a staple in the community where anyone can go to be musically enriched.

Community

Annapolis is a musical community with many musical wants and needs. At Naptown Sings!… and Plays! we listen to the community and create classes and programs accordingly. Additionally, we work with numerous organizations to bring scholarship programs to students who cannot otherwise afford music lessons and classes.

Music Programs for All Ages in Annapolis, MD

We are so happy to be able to offer music programs from birth through adulthood. Our Musikgarten: Family Music for 0-3 Year Olds, parent and me style class is a great way to instill music at the earliest age. As the little ones progress, we offer a Music Immersion class for 3-5 Year Olds, designed to teach musical skills before taking up an instrument. As students enter Elementary School, we offer leveled Glee Clubs, a Ukulele Class and Private Voice and Instrument Lessons, to nurture your child’s musical development in a more technical way, while inspiring each child through his or her interests. Glee Clubs and Lessons continue throughout Middle and High School to allow students to hone their musical proficiency. Private Lessons at the studio are available for students of any age. Yes, you can still pick up guitar at 70! Learning an instrument is great, but putting that instrument to use is equally important. At Naptown Sings and Plays! we have created a community of music through regular open mics, bi-yearly recitals, concerts at the end of each Glee Club session, Rock Band classes, regular gigs at the BEST Annapolis festivals, outreach to local schools and beyond. We are proud to be a one-stop musical resource for Annapolis music. Join us to see why the hype around us is so real!

Our daughter has been taking a small group lesson for three years and we can really tell the difference in her awareness of the songs she hears on the radio and whether or not they are a song that would work for her.

The Latest from Naptown Sings!

Hello Friends and Families of Naptown Sings and Plays!

Our beloved multi-instrumentalist teacher, Mr. Trevor, and his wife, Amanda, welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Penelope, into the world on Friday, February 19th! Please read Trevor's story, and consider a donation:

"Penelope has had several episodes during which she has stopped breathing for unknown reasons. The first episode was the scariest because it happened pretty much out of nowhere when she was sleeping in my arms. Needless to say, looking down and seeing her little blue face was the most traumatizing experience of my life. Thankfully she has been able to recover from these episodes with some intervention, and since she has been under constant monitoring, she hasn’t had any quite as bad as the first.

The good news is that she is doing better by the day as she grows a bit stronger, and she hasn’t had an episode in over 24 hours. At this moment we are allowing ourselves to be hopeful that we will be discharged soon, as the doctor here is encouraged by her progress.

Amanda and I have lost many, many years, but in the end and as we get ourselves out of this mess, I know it will all be more than worth it."

In order to take care of his family, Mr. Trevor may need to take extra time off from teaching. He usually makes his living playing gigs, composing, and teaching at Naptown Sings and Plays! His other two forms of income disappeared when the pandemic hit, but now he will not have expected income coming in from his teaching job, as I'm sure medical bills will mount.

Note to Families: As we learn more, we will reach out to you about securing substitutes for the weeks Trevor will be out. Please do not fret or reach out about scheduling at this time. Thanks!

Thank you for your consideration. Please keep the Shipley family in your thoughts and prayers. <3

With Love,

The Naptown Sings and Plays! Team

Celebrate Black History Month Through Music Education
.
Join us TODAY for a virtual drop-in!
.
This month, our Musikgarten and Music Immersion classes will celebrate Black History Month! Each week will cover a genre of Black music in the United States:
.
Week 1: Spirtuals/Religious Music
Week 2: Blues/Jazz
Week 3: Rock N Roll/Rhythm & Blues
Week 4: Hip Hop, Pop, and Rap.
.
American music history is Black music history. The majority of musical genres in the United States are or originated from Black music. Music as a means of social change is an important part of our American heritage, and we feel it is our duty as music teachers to make that known to our youngest generation.
.
Details:
Classes: Musikgarten and Music Immersion
Class Formats: In-Person (when available) and Virtual
Ages:
Musikgarten is appropriate for ages 0-3
Music Immersion is technically for ages 2.5-6,
but we feel students up to age 8 will benefit from and enjoy this curriculum.
