Nominated as one of the city's top music programs by Nick Jr. and GoCityKids, the family-friendly early music education program City Stomp was developed by classically-trained musician and Brooklyn dad Kevin MacCallum, former director of Music Together in Bay Ridge.
Musical themes that vary by session incorporate the city's cultural diversity, landmarks, and familiar sights and sounds. This spring's song collection features Latin-flavored songs about Coney Island and a punk re-mix of Itsy-Bitsy Spider.
City Stomp teachers, all professional musicians, accompany themselves on guitar, drums or keyboard in classes that blend melodies, harmonies and rhythms, laying a strong musical foundation for future music education.
Children sing, dance and play instruments -- shakers, drums, triangles, sticks -- in lively sessions that help them learn basic musical literacy.
City Stomp, around for four years now teaching kids from 6 months to 4 years, was described by MommyPoppins as an "awesome interactive music class for young NYC kids."
The cost to enroll your child in a 10-week series of classes, beginning April 6, is $215.00 (sibling discount available). The enrollment price includes a copy of the professionally-engineered Orange Line City Stomp CD.
