Welcome! New for Spring 2015... Look around, say hello and join the email list! Good news!

Katie's Laughing Tree Music musical play classes and Education Through Music (ETM) teaching are going strong in the Davis/Sacramento, CA area. Recent play with young children has included The Relationship Skills Center in Sacramento and a flurry of activity in Winters at the Winters Parent Nursery School, The Treehouse, and Waggoner Elementary School's aftercare program. Katie would love to come sing and play with your group too! Contact Laughing Tree Music directly to set up lessons or a session! Praise for Laughing Tree Music: "The evening was fantastic!! The girls were still singing as they were leaving. In fact, several asked for Part 2 of Music with Katie. I kept thinking how lucky [my daughter] was to have music with you everyday. What an amazing experience for her... It was truly a special time for the girls tonight...to experience you and your music. It is like no other. Thanks!!" - Lisa McMillan Paschal, Girl Scout leader "The way you can work with any group of kids is great... It's so fun to see you with the kids. I love how excited they get. Thanks for giving them such a special experience." - Relationship Skills Center, Sacramento
