Jewish Museum Presents 'Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals' Starting 9/14
Beginning September 14, The Jewish Museum presents Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals, a weekly music class for toddlers on ten Tuesdays through November 16. This hip and original class is being taught by Mike Messer, lead singer of the Dirty Sock Funtime Band. Two sessions are offered, the first from 10:00 to 10:45 am, and the second from to 11:00 to 11:45 am. Toddlers ages 6 months to 4 years and their parents will enjoy singing, dancing and jumping in this interactive program with musical instruments, props, bubbles, parachutes and other surprises. They will learn songs celebrating the lives of kids in the city, as well as more traditional and universal themes. A stimulating and fertile musical environment, positive role models, and gentle guidance and encouragement provide an enriching and vital experience. The classes help young children gain a sense of themselves and a connection to the world they live in.
A free trial class will be offered on Tuesday, August 24 at 10 am. To reserve a space, parents may call 212.423.3289.
Music for Aardvarks is the brainchild of David Weinstone, a classically trained ex-punk rocker. His songs were originally written for the Music for Aardvarks classes he founded. Wrote Time Out NY Kids, "it's no exaggeration to say that Weinstone has changed the musical geography of New York."
The registration fee for each ten-class course is $345.00 per child; and $315.00 for Jewish Museum family members. Parents registering siblings receive a 20% discount for the second child. Class size is limited and early registration is recommended. Adults are asked to accompany their children. For further information, the public may call 212.423.3225 or visit www.thejewishmuseum.org/families.
