Programs for All Ages

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!

What Our Students and Their Parents Think of Naptown Sings!

Sophia Hardesty is the best voice coach for elementary and middle school kids! I’ve had a front row seat to watch her transform her students into young professionals, with the right mindset for future success – not just in music, but in anything they decide to do later on in life. You can’t go wrong with Naptown Sings. Take your child here! Jeremy Ragsdale

My daughter has been a private voice student of Sophia’s at Naptown Sings for 2 years. Her singing voice has grown tremendously in that time. With Sophia’s structured and patient instruction, she was able to progress to the higher level singing group at school after just a few months with Sophia. She has gained, not only talent, but confidence. Dani Jarek

Naptown Sings is the best! My daughter learned proper singing tips, had fun while learning, and most of all, her confidence has soared since joining. She now has no fear of standing in front of a group of people and has made some amazing friends as well- thank you Naptown Sings!! Kathleen Stock
