Playing a musical instrument is a skill that will serve you throughout your entire life, like safe cracking, horse punching, and toddler juggling. Add to your resumé with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a summer music pass (a $135 value) to Allegro School of Music on Ambrose Avenue Northeast.
The friendly, experienced teachers at Allegro School of Music delight ears and bolster brains with a variety of music and movement activities for learners of all ages. The summer music pass offers tune-thusiasts two private lessons, with choices ranging from classical violin to blues kazoo (a $40 value). Children ages 5 and younger can enjoy sing-along songs, puppet theater, and tent-fort jam sessions at four open-play sessions (a $20 value), and those 7 and younger may attend four craft- and story-filled classes with their parents and other families, exploring exciting themes such as farm life, dinosaur kingdoms, and cat ennui (a $60 value). Hit up the Family Music Festival on July 26 at 10 a.m. and use the included $5 for food toward concession delights. Festival admission is free.
Enjoy a song-download gift card (a $10 value) that offers a taste of the Allegro's innovative Kindermusik program, in which kids age 7 and younger develop motor skills, learn to read, and begin to play instruments with licensed early-childhood educators. Families wanting yet more musical enrichment can take full advantage of the extras being offered along with this Groupon, including $15 off fall Kindermusik classes or private lessons, as well as $10 off summer community-choir registration. Groupon holders also get $10 off registration for A.M.P. Camp (Art, Music, and Play), where kids ages 4 to 11 learn about a host of instruments through games, songs, and art, helping them decide if they want to become rock guitarists, jazz pianists, or professional yodelers.
