SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Songs for Seeds, Manhattan’s award-winning children’s music program, arrives in Scarsdale this week.
Over 70 families -- with children ages newborn to 6 -- will attend the music program starting Tuesday, at Scarsdale Synagogue Temples Tremont and Emanu-El on Ogden Road.
Classes run Tuesday-Thursday.
Songs for Seeds features 45-minute classes led by a three-piece live band of teachers/musicians who encourage kids and their parents or caregivers 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 (guitar, keys and drums).
Founded in 2009 by the owners of Apple Seeds, a New Y0rk-based company that offers fun, educational programs for young children, Songs for Seeds has been named Best Music Class by New York Magazine and Most Magical Music Class by Red Tricycle.
Emmy Award-winning TV producer Dana Goodman Fisher, who grew-up in Scarsdale, is bringing the program to Westchester.
“When we lived in New York, I sent my two children, Teddy and Ruby, to Songs for Seeds. The kids loved the classes, and so did the parents,” said Goodman Fisher. “When we moved back to Scarsdale, I kept thinking why was there nothing like Song for Seeds in Westchester? I’m thrilled to bring this educational, sweet and fun program to my hometown. There’s simply nothing like it, anywhere.”
Each week the children experience music, instruments and language from a different culture.
Magnetic art murals are created by the children during the singalong of well-known nursery rhymes, magic tricks are used to practice numbers and counting and a wheel is spun to reinforce the names and sounds of animals.
