Come join in the fun at Music for Aardvarks classes; a musical experience for families with children ages birth to 5 years. We will explore music through song and gesture, dance and movement, rhythm training, and instrument play; using original music that celebrates the lives of children growing up in an urban environment.
Written by David Weinstone, songs like Taxi, City Kid, and Subway provide children with a positive image of their world and help them relate to their surroundings.
Mommy and Me with Audra Rox offers a first music class experience for families with babies ages 12 months and younger. The class is more mellow and tailored for our youngest students and their needs. Babies get so much out of sitting in the lap of either parent/caregiver in the circle and literally feeling the music around them. As recently cited in the NYTimes, exposure to music at this young age is largely beneficial for early brain development.
The sense of community created by coming together is of additional benefit. This is often the first "circle time" for baby and parent. Countless long lasting friendships begin here! We hope you'll join us in this very special class!
