At the age at which most children learn to speak, Mozart had already composed four symphonies, restored 11 classic cars, and built a robot to play against in squash. Help your own little Wolfgangs catch up with today's Groupon: for $25, you get four children's music classes or two private lessons at Early Ears (up to a $50 value).
Early Ears owner and professional musician Anahid Bertrand teaches children the magic of musical expression through a variety of kid-friendly instruction techniques. MusiKids classes (a $50 value) provide an outlet for newborn to 4-year-old mini maestros to express their inner boogie-woogie by introducing them to a rotating number of fun, approachable instruments, including drums, violins, triangles, and teeny, tiny 18th-century cathedral organs. Pintsize musicians age 4–7 can get their virtuoso on by participating with peers in group piano, violin, or voice classes (a $48 value), and musicians of all ages can benefit from private music tutoring (a $50 value for two lessons). Aside from excelling in the universal language of song, Bertrand is fluent in six spoken languages, ranging from Spanish to Bulgarian, and Groupon holders are welcome to use the value of today's deal toward language classes as well. The class schedule lists dates throughout the week, including convenient Saturday times to accommodate busy families or superhero parents.
Because each child learns at his or her own pace, Anahid caters to differing needs using both traditional and Suzuki teaching styles, taking great care to make classes as fun as possible. Parents often sing and play along with their pintsize Beethovens, belting out karaoke renditions of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and jamming through hours-long jazz freestyles. Instruments are provided for all classes, and a CD is provided for the MusiKids class, but the required books for piano, voice, and violin students ($17) are not included in the value of the Groupon.
