Claudia Orci: A Sound Start, Early Childhood Music School, opened its doors in 2006 in Jersey City with Andrea Gunden. Since that day, we have been sharing music with NJ families in JC & now in Northern NJ. Claudia Orci joined the team in 2011, and in 2017, became owner/director of A Sound Start. ​​

We are passionate about music and love to see how little ones and their caregivers discover their passion for music. We enjoy to see our students grow in music and social skills from when they first come to class when infants and stay until they are ready for school!

What is unique about your business?

Claudia Orci: A Sound Start is a special place where great joy sparks while children connect with their inner musician. A Sound Start is run by a musician who passes along her knowledge about music. Children learn basic musical concepts in a fun and dynamic way. It's a hands-on class where they experience through intruments, voice, sounds, textures, and movement. The best part? kids love the live guitar at the end of class!

What is most important for people to know about your business?   

Claudia Orci: The curriculum of the class is tailored so that each child has a unique experience -every single time- and of course, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and nanny are part of the family and join in on the fun too! 



Each class is a world of discovery and adventure! You'll witness your child's developmental progress in language skills, literacy, listening, problem-solving, social skills, self-esteem, emotional connections, and musicality. And it happens within a nurturing environment; full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight.
