Spring Classes: Shake Rattle & Roll

In collaboration with the organization Parents as Primary Teachers Inc., Brooklyn Children’s Museum hosts a series of Saturday Music Classes called Shake, Rattle & Roll.

Shake, Rattle & Roll is a hands-on, cultural music program for children of all ages and their families. The 60-minute sessions include a thematic story-time, a science of sound activity, a map activity, and a hands-on music lessons using authentic, global percussion instruments. Families get training and NYS education standards-based curriculum guides to extend the fun, music-making experience to other academic subject areas using public library books. By the end of the program, the children create their own durable instruments and compose rhythm patterns.
