The home of Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians

and so much more….

Thank you so much for your interest in learning more about Ms. Clara’s Joyful Learning Center! My name is Clara D’Onofrio, and I am thrilled that after 3 years of offering high-quality music classes for children from 4 months – kindergarten in preschools, libraries, community spaces, and park districts, I am now creating the perfect new home for Ms. Clara’s Mini Musicians. However, my passion for joyful learning and joyful community building reaches far beyond music, far beyond the precious early childhood years, and I have found some amazing art, dance, photography, (etc.) teachers who share this passion.

Our mission at Ms. Clara’s Joyful Learning Center is to co-create a joyful and nurturing space for children and adults to learn joyfully and connect joyfully with others through music, art, dance, and more. 

Our goal is not to offer as many classes as we can on as many subjects as we can, but rather, our mission is to listen to the needs and wants of local families, and create space for these ideas in the most authentic and enriching way possible. Our only requirement is that each class, each event, each gathering has the underlying mission of learning joyfully and connecting joyfully with others.

We will have a strong mix of free events, paid classes, pay-what-you-can gatherings, and more. We thank you in advance for your understanding that this space is created from love and joy, and we appreciate your patience as we work together to discover the true nature of Ms. Clara’s Joyful Learning Center and allow it to grow as a flourishing cornerstone in our community.
