Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals is a refreshing alternative to traditional music classes for babies and toddlers. Our celebrated national 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 David’s original songs, rhythms and chants. With influences of rock, blues, ballads, folk, jazz and pop, our songs uniquely reflect and celebrate the lives of today’s children. Our music is innovative, intelligent and irresistibly appealing to kids and parents alike. Our informal, spirited classes are geared toward children three months to five years old and incorporate singing, dancing, musical storytelling, instrumental jam sessions and more. It’s an interactive musical experience for the whole family!

Activities such as instrument exploration, sing-a-longs with shakers and live guitars, dancing with colorful scarves, and various movement activities are designed to provide a stimulating, positive experience for both children and parents. Music for Aardvarks classes help improve balance and coordination, introduce social skills in a group “play” environment and, above all, promote a fun association with music…which can last a lifetime.

Thursdays – 11:30 am – Infant class (starts December 7th)

Music Together BABIES – Newborn through non-mobile 6 months with adult(s) – this is a one-semester introduction to Music Together®.In this class, the activities are specifically designed to teach you how to support music development in infancy and how to connect with your baby through music using methods such as “purposeful touch,” “sound-layering,” “dancing for baby,” etc. And since our Babies Class uses the same song collections as our other classes, you will experience a seamless transition as your baby grows into our mixed-age, in-school, and “Big Kids” classes. Please bring a cozy blanket. Great class for meeting other parents with babies (not a sibling class). After attending the 10 week session of a Babies class, you will “graduate” into a mixed aged class armed with skills to enhance your musical experience with your child.
