MUSIC FOR AARDVARKS w/ Jo and Joanne
|Music for Aardvarks is a refreshing alternative to the traditional music class for kids. The program was created in 1997 in Brooklyn, NY by rock musician/composer and father of three, David Weinstone. Music for Aardvarks is distinct from other children's music programs in that all classes are based around Mr. Weinstone's original songs, rhythms, and chants. With influences of rock, blues, ballads, folk, jazz and pop, Aardvarks songs uniquely reflect and celebrate the lives of children growing up today. The music is innovative, intelligent, and irresistibly appealing to both kids and their parents. Our informal, spirited classes are geared toward children 3 months to 4 years old and incorporate singing, dancing, musical storytelling, instrumental jam sessions and more. We use lots of child-friendly instruments and props in class and we encourage participation from the children in whatever way they can. There is no right or wrong way for them to enjoy the music. We incorporate a lot of movement in class, so be ready for some big time fun with your little one! It's an interactive musical experience that the whole family can genuinely get excited about!
Mondays, 10:00-10:45, 11:00-11:45 Classes start September 16th
