We look forward to giving both children and parents positive music experiences.  And not just in our workshops, but perhaps you will be inspired to sing, play and dance more at home too.


Song, playing,
dance and mouvements


Various music activities such as song, movement, playing instruments (for instance, the shaker egg or djembe) give the unique opportunity to meet each other at the same level, no matter what age or background.

In our music group, we often experience a warm and friendly atmosphere. Children use their whole body to experience the music, the adults are there for and with their children, and together we create many golden moments.

Research has shown that exposure to and participation with music from an early age has an extremely positive effect on the child's development.  We strive to give children and parents good experiences around music, and contribute to a holistic development of the child's artistic, musical, social, linguistic, motor and cognitive skills.

For your child, your voice is the most beautiful in the world.  So sing with the voice you have!  In the music groups, we put aside any worries about our own voice and just sing, move and dance as we are. Welcome just as you are!

  • Our music groups are led by well-qualified music teachers.
  • You can find us in the middle of Stavanger, in the cellar of the Sølvberget library and arts centre.
  • We are not affiliated to any church or other religious organisation.
