This class is 1 hour long and is a drop off class. (Please contact us in advance if a parent/caregiver needs to accompany your child during class). To find out more information, or to register for the class visit The Little Art Studio Website here.

Little Folkies Music Class

Little Folkies is a recreational song-circle for kids and parents created in San Francisco and instructed by active Bay Area musicians. This class features a repertoire of uplifting and down-to-earth folk tunes, both original and traditional, often accompanied by hand-movements, clapping, instrumental jamming, and dancing. These Appalachian / bluegrass inspired songs, composed by class creators Irena and Joshua Smith are favorites amongst families from Little Folkies classes, and are ripe for singing throughout your week to accompany a myriad of everyday activities.

Each class features only acoustic instruments like guitar, banjo and ukulele, a delightful array of nature inspired folk songs for children as well as hands on jamming on child sized instruments like accordions, xylophones, percussion, etc. Students also get instrumental recordings of class material to accompany singing at home.
