What is Music For Aardvarks?
Music For Aardvarks is a rocking and rolling music and movement program for children 5 months to 5 years old and their actively participating grown-up! Our classes are a highly interactive, dynamic, FUN experience for both you and your child.
 
How are you handling social distancing?
For outdoor classes, we set up spots distanced 7-8 feet apart, and families bring their own blankets to place on top. For indoor classes, all adults are required to provide proof of vaccination.

Fall 2021 classes will all be outdoors. In case of rain or severe cold, we will move inside the Superdome bubble in Waldwick or Social Hall at Temple Beth Haverim Shir Shalom in Mahwah. Both locations are conducive to social distancing. Masks will be required for adults and children over the age of 2 at all times while indoors.

How long is a semester?
Fall 2021 will be 7 weeks long, running through the end of October.

How much do classes cost?
Please go to our classes page to see current tuition pricing. 

Can I make-up a missed class?
Families may make up one missed in-person class per semester.

Can I bring an extra grown-up to class?
Right now due to size constraints, we ask that you please limit the number of grownups attending class as much as possible. Please don't come with more than two adults per one child!

What instruments do we use during class?
During socially-distanced classes, all families are required to bring their own instruments. You may make your own instruments, or purchase from Amazon - we made a shopping list that might be helpful!

I can’t sing/I have the worst voice/I’m tone deaf… I’m not going to have to sing in class, am I?
We like to think of ourselves as pretty good singers, but we 100% do not want to be singing alone in class!! The most fun classes are always the ones where grownups sing out – no matter what you think your voice sounds like, your singing and participation is THE most important thing. You are the model for your child: sing loud!

What if my child doesn’t participate?
Every child is different; we have absolutely no expectations of them or their level of participation. It is important that they feel comfortable in class: even if they’re not singing along or playing exactly how we are playing, they are still taking everything in. Your child may sing and play loudly at home but not feel comfortable doing so in class… That’s OK!!

Your child also may not necessarily want to sit still in the circle when we are… That’s OK, too! We only ask that you intervene if your child is playing or moving in a way that might endanger him or herself or others.
