WAG has shared news about Songs for Seeds, the award-winning music program for children, here before — and we’re doing it once again.
The program, named “Best Music Class” by New York Magazine and “Most Magical Music Class” by Red Tricycle, will begin offering classes for children under age 6 at The East Pointe Dance Studio, 11 Rye Ridge Plaza. The program gets under way Sept. 20; visit songsforseeds.com/ny/ryebrook for the full schedule.
Dana Fisher of Scarsdale, an Emmy Award-winning TV producer at ABC’s “The View,” brought Songs for Seeds to Westchester and Scarsdale last fall and its popularity has enabled the expansion.
“We’re so excited to introduce Songs to Seeds to Rye Brook, Rye, Port Chester, Harrison, Purchase, Mamaroneck and Greenwich,” she said in a news release. “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 teacher/musicians who encourage children 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.
Each week the children experience music, instruments and language from a different culture. 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.
