Musical Stew with Gina Samardge
for babies and toddlers, 6 months – 4 years old

Sing, dance, play and laugh with your little one!  
Musical Stew is a 45 minute music and movement class for children 6 months to 4 years-old and the grown-ups who love them. Rooted in music education approaches such as Orff-Schulwerk, Kodaly and Dalcroze, the classes provide adults with an array of songs, rhymes and activities to help nurture their child's musical development and the little ones to begin an integrative musical journey that lets music work its magic—helping children develop cognitively, physically and emotionally.
