Ms. Jean has been providing KenCrest Early Learning Center with her music therapy program for 13 years. Over the years she has provided the children with an engaging & interactive music program that incorporates culture, education, exercise, and social skills. The children love to explore the wide variety of instruments she brings and enjoy singing both new songs, as well as familiar favorites. Everyone at KenCrest LOVES Ms. Jean and look forward to her visits each week! Carrie Brueckman Program Coordinator, KenCrest Early Learning Center

A passion for music in all it's forms...

Established by multi-instrumentalist, audio engineer, and perfomer Jim Lopardo...

The Sandbox was originally created to help identify, train and develop the area's terrific young songwriters. With both a publishing arm and recording label, The Sandbox helps songwriters and artists maximize their potential by taking avantage of the many income streams open to musicians today.

From singer-songwriter to pop, R&B hip-hop to contemporary classical, The Sandbox exists to develop and promote the tremendous talent in the Philadelphia region.

As part of our mission in promoting music and the arts, The Sandbox also provides individual music instruction, MUSIC THERAPY services, and children's group music programs for all ages!
