SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Children love music, singing and dancing and that's what has helped the popular children's music program, Songs for Seeds in Scarsdale, become such a hot commodity for moms and children around the region.
The program has become so popular that owner Dana Goodman-Fisher of Scarsdale, has announced she will expand the number of classes from seven to 11 for the Winter/2016 schedule, which begins Jan. 4.
Goodman-Fisher said she needed to expand the program to meet the demand of parents in Scarsdale and lower Westchester, and Connecticut who wanted to register their children.
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.
“Once we started Songs for Seeds last September, many moms from Scarsdale, lower Westchester and Southern Connecticut took our program viral via the Internet and mentioned it to their friends,” said Goodman-Fisher. “We were thrilled, but overwhelmed by parental requests to sign-up their children so we are now delighted to expand the program. We’re pleased with the program’s quick success, but ecstatic for the children who are singing, dancing and playing instruments with our Songs for Seeds band.”
Morning and afternoon winter classes are open to children newborn to 6 years old and are held at Scarsdale Synagogue Temples Tremont and Emanu-El. Class schedules are posted at http://scarsdale.songsforseeds.com .
Songs for Seeds has been named "Best Music Class" by New York Magazine and "Most Magical Music Class" by Red Tricycle. For more information, contact Goodman Fisher at email@example.com
