Beating to his own drum
If your child loves music, the Children’s Music Center of Jamaica Plain hosts birthday parties.
You can rent out the 700-square-foot studio for two hours for $175. The price includes use of percussion instruments, the center’s sound system, and a happy birthday banner. Bring your own food, beverages and cake. For an extra cost, the staff will lead your group in special music, movement, or craft activities.
