Testimonials

100% of the parents who participated in the trial classes commented in the survey that the quality of the classes were “beyond their expectations!!”

Hug Music is the best music school we’ve found in the area. They focus on personal attention with their small class size, we love their philosophy in exposing children while listening and playing acoustic live music Instruments throughout the class. My son loves attending their music sessions, and we really enjoy their nurturing school environment…
— H, a mother of a 2-year-old boy

My son Andrew and I started attending mommy and me music classes at Hug Music in the Fall of 2017. As a new mother I was scared to bring my 15 month old son to class thinking he wouldn’t be able to sit still and pay attention. However being an elementary school music teacher myself, I knew it was very important for his social and emotional development. I wanted my son’s first experiences with music and education to be extremely positive. Sasha and Kana immediately provided a very nurturing and positive environment for learning. Their lessons were very engaging and extremely enjoyable. Kana and Sasha treat their students like their extended family. My son loves them very much and wants to listen to their cds at home all the time. My son is now 2 and a half and says he wants to take guitar lessons so he can play like Sasha. We had gone to several other mommy and me trial classes in the area but nothing compared to the quality curriculum and high standards set by the teachers of Hug Music. I would highly recommend this program to any parent looking to instill a love of music in their child.

We are sad because we are moving to California… The only thing we miss from Forest Hills so badly is Hug Music!

It is beyond my expectation for music programs for toddlers!

Her music class was the highlight of my daughter’s week and we are so grateful she had that experience. She loves you and Sasha and always talks about you and the class. Hug music is one of the things we will miss most about Forest Hills!

Hands down, Hug Music!
— Shannon, a mother of 3-year old boy

Hug Music makes my shy little boy so much more outgoing and happier! He gives me big smiles whenever I sing the Hug Melody songs at home. We are all so happy with the classes.

I am a Juilliard grad and music school owner myself but specialize in private instruction only. I send everyone to Hug Music and the kids that return to us afterwards have loved it! Even one of my faculty had her daughter attending until they moved. Have heard nothing but great things.
— Natalia L. An owner of Music School of NYC

Two weeks ago we were getting ready for bed and my 2-year-old son, L, said, “Mama, I love Kana. I love Sasha. I love music class”. My heart melted. That was a testament to the impact you both have made in my child’s life. You guys are amazing and we are so happy to have found you. Thank you both for all that you do.
— Romana, mom to 2 year-old boy who has been taking Hug Melody 1 class

like the class because it is personalized and music used is all original composition!

My girl talks about you (Kana) and Sasha all the time. At least 3 times a day she says Sasha! Guitar! and makes a strumming motion and then she says Kana! and clicks her tongue. You are definitely having a great impact on her.

Dear Sasha and Kana, Thank you for giving wonderful classes since Hug Music opened last year. My daughter, E. developed her innate musical ability through your class. What I am grateful the most is that the fact that E. really enjoys music with you and her wonderful classmates. Thank you again!

The small class size enables my child to receive full attention and interact with the teachers.

Music played throughout the class is so nice and there is a room for every baby to sing and participate.

Hug Music is the best! My daughter was a bit shy at first, but due to the small class size (6 students max) and nurturing instructors, Kana and Sasha, she’s really blossomed into trying all the instruments and practices singing at home. She loves her Saturday classes!!!
