We will explore music through song & gesture, dance & movement, rhythm training, and instrument play; using original music that celebrates the lives of children growing up in an urban environment. Written by David Weinstone, songs like Taxi, City Kid, and Subway provide children with a positive image of their world and help them relate to their surroundings.

Mommy and Me with AudraRox offers a first music class experience for families with babies ages 18 months and younger.  We offer a more mellow program tailored for our youngest students and their needs.  Babies get so much out of sitting in the lap of either parent/caregiver in the circle, and literally feeling the music around them.  It's been proven (and cited recently in the NY Times) that exposure to music at this young age is largely beneficial for early brain development. 
Plus, the babies love the music!  Voices, chants, guitar and rhythm sticks, movement and instrument exploration -  all parts of our class help introduce our babies to the many ways to make and enjoy music. In this class we will stress the element of community that is created in our meeting.  This is often the first "circle time" for  baby and parent, and we've seen countless long lasting friendships and communities bond over coming together once an a week with the focus of making music with our babies.  We hope you'll  join us in this very special class!
