SAVE THE DATE – Join Us at Fall 2014 Beat NF!

The Washington University NF Center, in collaboration with the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation and Jazz St. Louis, is proud to host the fall 2014 Beat NF Together 6-week program starting on Wednesday October 15 at the Harold and Dorothy Steward Center for Jazz in downtown St. Louis.
Beat NF is a toddler and parent jazz music therapy group focused on developing social skills, attentions skills and motor skills in toddlers with NF1, while fostering parent-child interactions and jazz appreciation. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for caretakers and toddlers to strengthen personal interactions while developing skills often delayed in children with NF1 through the power of music. Each session of Beat NF affords toddlers a chance to improve social skills by singing together, work on attention skills through group music creation and practice motor skills using dance and play. In addition to music therapy, toddlers and caretakers hear jazz music from local artists and learn about jazz as an art form and creative outlet.
The Washington University NF Center is very excited for the upcoming Beat NF sessions and we hope you can join us! If you are interested in attending, please contact Kirsten Brouillet at
