We tailor our classes specifically to your children's ages and interests. We create classes that are exciting for YOU! Some of our modules are below and can be appropriately combined into mixed age groups...

 

Sing & Sign with Simcha / Sing & Sign Spiritually
Ages 0 months-5 years: Your child can become a star, as we sing, sign, play instruments, and groove to the beat of your child's favorite Jewish and Shabbat tunes, and Baby Grand Orchestra originals. We will: sing, play with musical instruments, learn sign language, do drama activities and other kinesthetic movements. There will be English & Hebrew songs, movement, and Jewish children’s stories with puppets & parachute. Families will give tzedukah, learn about the Jewish holidays, and grow their Jewish identity! There will be new fun surprises and songs in each class, however there will be enough repetition so that moms and babies can gain familiarity, learn, and participate together creating an atmosphere of community and friendship. It is fun for the whole family! Mommies, Daddies, or caregivers will get to sing, dance, and play instruments along-side their children by using music and movement to strengthen their connection to Judaism!

Shabbat Shira
Similar to Sing and Sign Spiritually, however, with an emphasis on Shabbat music and traditions.

Sing & Sign
Ages 0 months-3 years: Your child can become a star, as we sing, sign, play instruments, and groove to the beat of your child's favorite tunes and Baby Grand Orchestra originals. We will: sing, play with musical instruments, learn sign language, do drama activities and other kinesthetic movements. There will be songs, children’s stories, parachutes, puppets, props, bubbles, and fairy tales with new fun surprises and songs each class. You will learn all the signs that will be useful for you to communicate with your baby. Research shows not only that babies can sign on average 2-3 months earlier than they can use verbal speech, but also that using Baby Sign increases their IQ. There will be enough repetition so that moms and babies can gain familiarity, learn, and participate together creating an atmosphere of community and friendship, but also new surprises and songs in each class. It is fun for the whole family. Mommies, Daddies, or caregivers will get to sing, dance, and play instruments along-side their children. We can’t wait for you to join us for our first big concert.
