JOIN US FOR CLASSES IN BOSTON, BROOKLINE, & CAMBRIDGE!

GroovyBabyMusic offers Canta y Baila Conmigo, the very best research-based, program that combines the goals of music education and language immersion. Canta Y Baila offers a playful, interactive atmosphere where language learning is integrated naturally and organically in the musical experience. While children are effortlessly absorbing and using the Spanish language, through the irresistible sounds and rhythms of Spanish speaking countries, they engage—along with their grown-ups—in age-appropriate explorations of melody, rhythm, movement and instrument play that help nurture a strong foundation in music literacy. Intended for both the native Spanish speakers and eager Spanish learners, Canta y Baila is enriching and fun!
