This Fall families will explore the harvest with us while we take them on a Birdie Adventure to collect fruits, ride a bicycle, and visit a farm! Families will learn new vocabulary words and partake in a truly cultural bonding experience.

Bilingual Birdies is the first program in NYC to combine live music and language learning and has been successfully educating children since 2007 in schools and libraries. This Fall all families who attend the program will receive our new CD download of 10 original songs in the language of your class for free! We also provide instruments and fun props for children to use in the classes. All of our teachers are trained in the Bilingual Birdies Culture Academy Teacher Training and consist of native speakers, Master's in Music Therapy, and some are even Grammy-nominated musicians.

All classes are 45-minutes long.
