At an average age of 3.5, Davey O'Lavey and the Melancholy Cowpoke Orchestra were the youngest artists to ever sell out Madison Square Garden. Salute the diapered dynamos of history with today's Groupon: $5 for a 45-minute playdate at Kindermusik with Grow and Sing Studios, a $15 value. Kindermusik provides classes in a slew of different locations throughout Orlando and was a Nickelodeon's Parents Pick in 2008 and 2009 for best music classes in Orlando.
Kindermusik playdates are themed one-day events for busy kids and parents to experience the kid-friendly and parent-interactive activities without disrupting babies’ loaded work weeks. Recommended for wee ones from newborn up to seven years of age, the multi-aged environment creates a place where kids can socialize and learn from each other, as well as from their teacher and parents. Each playdate will find your tot participating in a dizzying array of activities, including singing, dancing, playing instruments, performing with puppets, banging a big drum, and outlining their senior dissertation on the portrayal of class in early Jane Austen novels as related to season three of Ugly Betty. Each class will build upon a combination of the child's language skills, literacy, listening skills, problem-solving abilities, social skills, self-esteem, and musicality all while having a giggling good time.
The playdate comes with a free CD and a toy that corresponds with the theme of the playdate. Classes are added all the time, so keep an eye on Kindermusik's ever-changing schedule to find the playdate that tickles your fancybone, which is located on the bookshelf, next to the Rococo shells.

Kindermusik with Grow and Sing Studios
Listening to music from a young age does more than help someone dance well enough to get on the Jumbotron during basketball games. It can also improve a child's brain development, social skills, and emotional connections. The staff at Grow and Sing Studios make it their mission to aid in the development of children through a wide variety of age-appropriate classes. Instructors lead students through activities steeped in song and rhythm, from the parent-baby drumming in Kindermusik Village to the group sing-alongs during Music for Aardvarks. They also teach piano lessons.
