This weekly, 45 minute, interactive class encourages children, newborn to 6 years old, to sing, dance and play along with a live, three-piece band.  Kids rock out with children’s instruments, as well as real drums, guitars, keyboards and instruments from around the world.  Our teacher/musicians take students on a musical journey each week through a series of seven engaging activities. Your kids will experience music and language from  cultures around the globe, help create magnetic art murals during a sing-along of well-known nursery rhymes, be amazed and delighted by magic tricks that are used to practice numbers and counting and get fully engaged in a wheel spinning game that reinforces the names and sounds of animals.Most importantly, in Songs for Seeds, we play and have fun. By mixing our original kids rock ‘n’ roll with popular tunes, the band is sure to please little ones and their adults. It is the most fun you can have in 45 minutes with your kids. Join the fun!
