Rhythm Sticks

At Ladybug Music, we play with rhythm sticks every session. Playing with rhythm sticks is super fun for the kids and it’s a beneficial activity as well, because as they play with sticks, they’re working on their sense of the beat and their creative thinking. In addition, playing with rhythm sticks help little ones develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, and become more aware of their surroundings (spatial awareness).

This activity is perfect for the home, too. You can reinforce all this learning and development, while having a blast playing along to some cool grooves, with your child.

For over 5 years, Puerto Rico native Yayra Sánchez, taught Ladybug Music classes back in Los Angeles, CA; and now, she’s teaching the program in Austin! She wants to instill upon your child a love for good music, while helping them develop and grow.

Apart from being a teacher, Yayra is a classically trained singer, who is active in the local choral and opera communities. She’s also a wife and a mom, to two cool dudes.

Patricia Maertens

Los Angeles native, Patricia Maertens, is Ladybug Music’s creator and owner. An early-childhood music educator since 2004, Maertens started her business following a two-decade professional career as a singer, songwriter and producer whose original material has been featured in films and on TV. Her own education includes study at the prestigious Dick Grove School of Music and Musicians Institute.

Thanks to her heritage, background and extensive world travels, her musical taste roams freely over the boundaries of genre and origin, from Billie Holiday to the Clash, Tinariwen to Rickie Lee Jones. The Ladybug songbook—which spans six full-length CDs—reflects that variety.
