A child shows early signs of creativity by artfully spilling ice cream and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Encourage young imaginations with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three kids' drop-in music classes at Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals Memphis, with locations in Memphis and Germantown (a $40 value). Music for Aardvarks always offers the first drop-in class for free, so this Groupon's value is based off of two drop-in classes. The value of this Groupon may be applied toward a full semester's tuition.
Founded in New York City and featured in the New York Times and Time magazine, Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals Memphis nurtures nascent musical abilities during interactive, supervised classes. Each 45-minute session hosts 8–14 children, ages 6 months to 5 years, who exercise vocal cords and dance muscles to original songs, rhythms, and chants by founder David Weinstone, including some from the Nick Jr. television program Jack's Big Music Show. Skilled instructors draw on years of musical experience to guide little ones through rhythm-making activities, complete with drums and shakers, ensuring that kids avoid attracting stray reindeer while jangling tambourines. Adults are welcome to join the junior jam session and watch budding Mozarts learn skills at their own age-appropriate pace. Check the class schedule for times and locations.
