Winner of “Best Musical School” in 2021 by Westchester Magazine, Shake, Rattle & Roll is a high-energy, multicultural music and movement program for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. Moms, dads, grandparents, and nannies who bring their children each week have a wonderful time, while helping them make new friends. The varied curriculum supports musical learning and stimulates brain development. Many songs are sung in different languages, and original, catchy tunes are sung in English. Every session comes with a different music album to stream at home. During class, families play all kinds of instruments, bop, swing, twirl, and dance to music from around the globe. The classes meet outside during the warmer months and indoors in winter. It’s super musical fun!
