We make it fun—not only for children, but adults as well—by sharing original songs about the trials and tribulations of being a kid, getting to know the world around us and looking at the familiar in a new way. We’re not just about entertaining, though that will help the learning sink in deeper. And we’re not just about the education, though learning is fun! The songs are original, the vibe is funky, and the time you’ll have is rockin’ good one!

Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals is a refreshing alternative to traditional music classes for babies and toddlers, with locations across the country and internationally. Our celebrated national 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 David’s original songs, rhythms and chants. With influences of rock, blues, ballads, folk, jazz and pop, our songs uniquely reflect and celebrate the lives of today’s children. Our music is innovative, intelligent and irresistibly appealing to kids and parents alike. Our informal, spirited classes are geared toward children three months to five years old and incorporate singing, dancing, musical storytelling, instrumental jam sessions and more. It’s an interactive musical experience for the whole family!

David Weinstone’s songs are featured daily on Nick Jr. TV! With 16 original albums – over 250 songs and counting – Music for Aardvarks incorporates a variety of musical styles, performed with a contemporary, hip attitude. Some songs focus on the experience of growing up in an urban environment as a “city kid”, with songs about taxis, subways and exploring the sounds of the city. Both city and suburban kids respond to the different musical genres, tempos, key signatures and unique movement activities introduced through our curriculum. Participants receive a new Music for Aardvarks CD each session, with songs to sing and shake your booty to. Because there are so many songs and CDs in our catalog, you can take classes for many years without hearing the same set of songs! Hide
