11:30 a.m.New York City Kids!
Music for Aardvarks is a refreshing alternative to the traditional music class for kids. The program was created in 1997 in Brooklyn, NY by rock musician/composer and father of three, David Weinstone. Music for Aardvarks is distinct from other children's music programs in that all classes are based around Mr. Weinstone's original songs, rhythms, and chants. With influences of rock, blues, ballads, folk, jazz and pop, Aardvark songs uniquely reflect and celebrate the lives of children growing up…
