Let your tots dance their sillies out and sing along to catchy songs geared for their age group. Janet Casson of Rocky Mountain Music for Aardvarks leads a 20-to-30-minute music class that’s best for early learners (up to 4 years old). She starts each song by talking in rhyme to catch the tykes' attention before transitioning into tunes sung along to her guitar. The fun, loose format is perfect for short attention spans.
