Monthly Trading Parties

Kindermusik Playdates

Join us for monthly Kindermusik Playdates with Ellen Singh

  • What is a Playdate?

    It's a structured musical playtime featuring a particular theme. Children and their parents get to clap, stomp, sing, dance, pretend, and discover their musical selves. Playdates are about 45 minutes long and are open to any child, birth to age 5.

    Like all Kindermusik classes, the playdates are designed to promote a child's mental and physical development. For a more complete description of the benefits of Kindermusik, please click here: Kindermusik Playdate Complete Description

    Ellen Singh is a licensed Kindermusik instructor and has been leading our playdates for a few years now! She also teaches Kindermusik classes. For more information about her and the different classes she is offering, visit her blog or her facebook page.
