Songs for Seeds is a rockin’ new music program for children newborn to age 6 at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts. Named “Best Music Class” by New York Magazine, songs for seeds music classes encourage kids to sing, play instruments (from drums and guitars to pianos and accordions) along with a live, three-piece band, as well as dance and move as much as possible. Kids travel around the world experiencing music and language from a new country every week. The band creates well-known nursery rhymes through art and song, does magic tricks as a way to practice numbers and counting, and spins the animal wheel to reinforce animal names and sounds. Kids will go home singing songs that you will like as much as them.
