Your new favorite kids' music class!

WeBop is a young kids' music program created in New York City by Jazz at Lincoln Center and Columbia University.

Kids 8 months to 5 years old stomp, strut and swing to the rhythms of jazz as they learn about rhythms and instruments with director Tanesha Ross and a piano accompanist.

Plus every 4 weeks, we bring in a live band. Super fun!

Children do WeBop with a care-giver like mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, or auntie.  We promise this class is fun for adults too.
