SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Songs for Seeds, the award-winning and popular young children’s music program based in Scarsdale, has begun enrollment for the fall session.
Songs for Seeds will offer 12 morning and afternoon classes for children under the age of 6, starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, at the Scarsdale Synagogue on Ogden Road.

“We’re very excited to begin our second year offering an introduction to music for Scarsdale’s toddlers,” said Dana Goodman-Fisher, a native of Scarsdale and the director of Songs for Seeds. “We started the program last fall and during the past 12 months, we’ve grown and become a huge success with parents and children as they sing and dance with the Songs for Seeds band.”
Songs for Seeds features 45-minute classes led by a three-piece live band of teacher/musicians who encourage kids 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). Each week the children experience music, instruments and language from a different culture.
Magnetic art murals are created by the children during the sing-along 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.
By mixing original kids rock 'n' roll with adult contemporary music, the band is sure to please little ones (and their adult parents!), according to a release from Songs for Seeds.
The music program has received accolades for its creative approach to helping young children experience the many joys of music while learning more about it. It was named "Best Music Class" by New York Magazine and "Most Magical Music Class" by Red Tricycle.
Goodman-Fisher, who is also an Emmy Award producer at ABC’s "The View," says the Scarsdale program has been so successful that Songs for Seeds will expand in September, offering classes in Rye Brook at the East Point Dance Studio in the Rye Ridge Shopping Center.
