"This is the most enchanting, inspiring, and fun class that I take with my daughter. We go twice a week, and I’d go more if I could!"

Noe’s Garden is a nature – inspired music class for young children and caregivers, led by acclaimed indie singer-songwriter Noe Venable. We sing folk songs from around the world, as well as Noe's originals. Singing, movement, finger plays, Celtic harp and a puppet show make this a class the whole family will enjoy.

What Makes Our Class Special

  • A holistic, experiential approach to music making for the young child, integrating singing, movement, and puppetry.
  • Nurtures children's sense of ecological stewardship, through cultivating a sense of wonder and comfort in nature.
  • Empowers you to actively nurture the musicality of your child.
  • Gets you outside. Bring a picnic, and make a day of it!
  • It's gentle on the senses. As a mother to two sensitive children, Noe way with children is highly attuned, warm, and gentle.
  • Helps you find your people.

Because that is the deep purpose underlying everything we do.

At Noe’s Garden, we are building a village, one music circle at a time.


"My son and I went to check out many different music classes and all of them pale in comparison to your offering! Thanks so much for choosing this path in your life and bringing quality music into ours!"

Our Safety Plan

  • To ensure your safety, all classes are outdoors and socially distanced. Reflecting the recent changes in CDC recommendations, masks are now optional.
  • Noe, who is fully vaccinated, will remove her mask while teaching, in order to teach effectively.
  • We will refrain from sharing instruments. Instead, we will ask each family bring your own. For your convenience, we even have these instruments available for purchase in our online shop.
