Little Jay Music and Play


Sarah Brummer is the co-creator of Juliette & Ella's Play Date and the creator of Little Jay Music & Play. Both programs were inspired by her active and spirited daughter, Juliette. Sarah studied Musical Theatre at Indiana University and spent her 20s performing on cruise ships, in theatrical tours, in Motown tours as LaLa Brooks backing vocalist (lead singer of The Crystals) and as a singer-songwriter here in NYC. When her daughter was 5-months-old Sarah met her dear friend Maegan Woodin who convinced her to create their class Juliette & Ella's Play Date and begin teaching. Sarah quickly fell in love with teaching and is proud to now have around 200 students on the Upper-East-Side she teaches every week!
