about songs for seeds

Named "Best Music Class” by New York Magazine and "Most Magical Music Class" by Red Tricycle, songs for seeds is a rockin' music program that encourages children newborn to 6 years old to sing, dance and play along with a live, three-piece band. Kids play children's instruments, as well as real drums, guitars, keyboards and diverse instruments from around the world.  Using music to provide an interactive learning experience, we "travel" to a new country every week, create well-known nursery rhymes through visual art, perform magic tricks to practice numbers and counting, and spin the animal wheel to reinforce animal names and sounds.  By mixing our original kids rock 'n' roll with top 40 and classic hits from your iPod, the band is sure to please little ones as well as their grownups.

we are Alison, Allison, Bobby & Craig...

We all live in the Chelsea/Flatiron neighborhood in New York City, just blocks away from apple seeds 25th Street location. Allison, Craig and their 3 sons, Sam, Ari and Dov, live just north of apple seeds.  Alison, Bobby and their 2 daughters, Maddie, Sydney and son Jack, live just west of apple seeds. We met 6 years ago in a neighborhood Music Together class and from that point on everything changed.

Despite the tremendous influx of young families to our neighborhood in the past few years, we struggled to find an indoor locale where we could take our kids to play or eat or just hang out together.  With apple seeds we have found all that we were looking for – for our families and our community.  We now look forward to bringing a piece of our magical place to other neighborhoods with our songs for seeds franchise program.

songs for seeds is apple seeds' most popular class.  Hundreds of families are enrolled in songs for seeds classes each semester.  Children (and their adults) sing, dance and play along to our rockin' songs (we promise you'll like them...) as well as some of your favorite tunes.
