You need a group lesson that teaches the fundamentals of music!

Learning about the fundamentals of music in a group setting may be just what your little ones need! Your child is likely still young and learning together with other kids while covering a variety of topics in a fun and childlike way sets a strong foundation!

There is still time for your child to learn an instrument and succeed (I'm a professional violinist and didn't start playing until I was 10!).


There are many amazing children's programs that vary in cost and are nationally acclaimed programs:

Kindermusik - Whether you’re looking for classes for your children, strong curricula for your students, or fresh teaching methods for yourself, Kindermusik has you covered. You can attend classes near you for under $15 or take part in their membership starting at just $5.95/month, you can access searchable, pre-planned musical play activities with 100+ streamable songs for ages 0-7.

Hey! I’m Sonja Hindmarsh. I am passionate about my faith, family and serving the world through music!

Whether it means performing or mentoring children in their musical abilities, music has been important to me all of my life.

As a professional musician, I have been blessed with opportunities to perform in countries around the world including Germany, Romania, and throughout the United States and Canada. Being able to use music as a ministry, both in mission settings and local church settings, is a dream come true.

I direct a private music studio of violin students, freelance as a professional violinist and am the conductor of The Pacific Mennonite Children's Choir in Abbotsford, Canada. Oh, and I run a music curriculum business on the side 😎

I am so lucky to be able to inspire children to love music themselves, whether that means performing, enjoying, or listening.
