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 today. The music is innovative, intelligent, and irresistibly appealing to both kids and their parents. Our informal, spirited classes are geared toward children 3 months to 4 years old and incorporate singing, dancing, musical storytelling, instrumental jam sessions and more. It's an interactive musical experience that the whole family can genuinely get excited about!</p> </div> </div> Family Storytime: Stories, Songs and Rhymes for Little Ones (Stephen A.
