Music is something that most kids pick up quickly, just like language and that weird thing on the ground with the bugs on it. Keep their hands on an instrument with this Groupon.

Weekly, mixed-age classes designed for kids and their guardians expose groups of 6–12 tots to the joys of music making. In 45- to 60-minute sessions, trained music teachers lead adults in dancing, singing, and instrument playing, encouraging kids to follow along with the grownups. Classes include two CDs and a songbook containing the tunes used in class, allowing parents to continue musical education at home. See the class schedule here.
Sing With Me
The Sing With Me curriculum stretches back to the late 19th century, when a duo of sisters and early-education researchers composed the tune that would eventually become "Happy Birthday to You." Donating the popular song's royalties to a foundation, the song eventually financed the research of Ken Guilmartin, who was pursuing the role of music in early cognitive development. Teaming up with fellow researcher Lili Levinowitz, Guilmartin founded Music Together LLC, a system of musical learning that allowed kids from birth to age 7 and their parents to access the joys of music together in a fun, supportive environment. Although not every child is destined for a career as a concert pianist, Sing With Me’s teachers start from the philosophy that all children have some innate musical sense and can be taught to sing in tune, move rhythmically, and distinguish a recorder from a Charleston Chew.
