Give a child a CD and she'll listen for a day; teach her the drums and she'll annoy the neighbors for years. Shape young musical minds with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-month unlimited membership to Musical Playdate classes at ABC Do-Re-ME! (a $140 value). This offer is valid at nine locations: Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Hell's Kitchen, Midtown, and East Village, Brooklyn, and Queens.
ABC Do-Re-ME! engages children through music, encouraging little ones to sing, dance, play, and explore instruments in a playful atmosphere. Musical Playdate classes provides a fun outlet for excess wiggles while nurturing each child's cognitive, emotional, social, linguistic, and physical development. The program, open to children ages six months to seven years, is led by a guitar-toting teacher who introduces young learners to an eclectic variety of musical genres, including folk, world music, and avant-garde electro-polka. Exposure to a wide range of musical styles helps children learn about rhythm and melody, while visual aids and class movements help capture the imagination, promoting development of coordination and memory skills.

Even though it’s been lauded by CBS New York, Time Out New York Kids, and Nickelodeon Parents Connect, ABC Do-Re-Me! most values praise from its students. At each energetic studio, newborns to 6-year-olds ecstatically bounce along to children’s songs from a live guitarist or to tunes by pop artists such as the Beatles, the Black Eyed Peas, and Madonna, as they build cognitive skills, develop socially, and create dance routines that will wow at baby prom.
