MonkeyJump Music Party with Vanessa Trien!
GroovyBabyMusic pairs up with performing songwriter and music educator, Vanessa Trien, this Winter to present her personally-designed new program, "MonkeyJump Music and Movement P arty!" This unique program draws from Vanessa's original family music from her four award-winning CDs and beyond! This program combines an interactive sing-and-dance-along with a special free play portion so families may socialize as children explore and play in a safe, inviting space. Each music party has its own age designation so music activities can be selected to best match each age group, though free play time will allow families to “mix and mingle!” During this 6-week program, families sing along to Vanessa’s original tunes and join the band with percussion instruments, parachutes, bubbles and more, to really get the party rocking. With 16 families per class, this program stretches beyond the music class format and is more free, since the focus will be a community-building music party!

More about MonkeyJump Music Party:
About her MonkeyJump classes, Vanessa says, "My vision for these classes is to offer a warm, inviting space for families to connect with their babies and toddlers through joyful, educational, music and movement-rich experiences, as well as with a community of other families. Community building can happen as young children become accustomed to exploring and socializing with other children, while parents will benefit from new connections and friendships, as well as more confidence to make music an integral part of their everyday lives at home. So, let's have a music party!"
