Named best music class by New York Magazine and most magical music class by Red Tricycle, Songs for Seeds will begin offering 10 classes for children under 6 years of age at The East Pointe Dance Studio, located at 11 Rye Ridge Plaza, starting on Tuesday, Sept. 20 through Saturday, Dec. 17. Classes will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and the entire schedule is available at songsforseeds.com/ny/ryebrook
Dana Fisher, an Emmy award-winning TV producer at ABC’s “The View,” brought Songs for Seeds to Westchester and Scarsdale last fall, and it’s been so successful and so popular with children and their parents, she’s now expanding the toddler educational music program to Rye Brook.
“We’re so excited to introduce Songs to Seeds to Rye Brook, Rye, Port Chester, Harrison, Purchase and Mamaroneck,” Fisher said. “When we lived in Manhattan, I sent my two babies to Songs for Seeds. When we moved to Scarsdale, I kept thinking why was there nothing like Song for Seeds in Westchester? We opened classes in Scarsdale one year ago and the response has been overwhelming. We’re now thrilled to bring this educational and fun program to the Rye Brook area. The children and their parents sing and dance together and love it. There’s simply nothing like it, anywhere.”
Songs for Seeds features 45-minute classes led by a three-piece live band of teachers/musicians who encourage kids to sing, play instruments and dance. At the end of class, the students are invited to sing with the band karaoke-style, and play the band’s instruments, including guitar, keys and drums.
Each week, the children experience music, instruments and language from a different culture. Magnetic art murals are created by the children during the singalong of well-known nursery rhymes, magic tricks are used to practice numbers and counting, and a wheel is spun to reinforce the names and sounds of animals. By mixing original kids rock ‘n’ roll with adult contemporary music, the band is sure to please little ones (and their adult parents!).
Songs for Seeds was founded in 2009 by the owners of Apple Seeds, a Manhattan-based company that offers fun, educational programs for young children.
