Music for Aardvarks, a multi-faceted world of musical adventures, was created by classically trained ex-punk rocker David Weinstone. Raising his kids in New York City, Weinstone saw a need for songs relevant to their lives that would also address themes universal to children everywhere. Music for Aardvarks is rocking live performances by David Weinstone & The Music for Aardvarks Band; it’s music videos airing daily nationwide on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. channel; it's CDs that are grounded in real life, yet hip, with songs like "Taxi," "Bagel," "Play Date" and "Subway;" it's celebrating childhood without hype or straining to be different for the sake of being different. And speaking of hip, it's also the love child of punk and preschool, hailed by such notables as Philip Glass and Sonic Youth.
The lively 45-minute classes incorporate singing, dancing, musical storytelling, instrumental jam sessions, and interactive play. This hugely popular program has been praised to the skies by The New York Times, Time magazine, and celeb parents like Jon Stewart.
