Manhattan Aardvarks

In-person and live-streamed music classes for babies, toddlers and big kids.

Spring 2021 Outdoor Class Schedule

Hi!

My name is Ryan and I am the owner and head teacher of Manhattan Aardvarks, a music class for children aged six months to four years. We currently offer outdoor classes in Manhattan as well as live-streamed classes for kids anywhere in the world!

It's spring in the Big Apple, and our outdoor spring session has just begun. We have several locations including Riverside, Carl Schurz, Sakura, and Central Park.  

My classes have recently been featured on The Today Show, NowThis!, ABC7 Eyewitness News, Southern Living and more. All classes are currently taught by me, and I promise Manhattan Aardvarks is unlike any other music class you've had in the past.

Frequently asked questions:

What's your COVID policy? All parties that remain appropriately spaced are not required to wear masks. All instruments are disinfected after each class, and I am fully-vaccinated. I do ask that all children who congregate with other children wear a mask for the time being, per CDC guidelines.

Can I drop-in? You are free to drop-in via our scheduler. It's much cheaper to register for the entire session however, and I will create a custom registration package for you if you can only make specific dates. If this is your first time joining us, use code DROP10 to drop-in for only $10.

What if it rains? In the event of inclement weather, class will be cancelled. Everyone enrolled in that class is free to book a make-up via our scheduler. If you are signed up for the entire session and we have 2 or more rain cancellations, we will extend an extra week.

Do you have any discounts? Siblings are half-price and siblings under six months are free.

I'm signing up late - do you prorate? Yes! The site will automatically prorate the cost.

Do you offer private classes or birthday parties? Yes, please email me to discuss availability.

Can I bring a friend? Sure, just send them this link and have them sign up. Because of COVID, I have to make sure my classes are not overbooked!

What's up with the Aardvark? Manhattan Aardvarks features the music of David Weinstone’s critically-acclaimed Music for Aardvarks catalog. With over 12 CDs of original music, Music for Aardvarks songs reflect the unique experience of growing up in the Big Apple. Chances are you’ve already heard one of our biggest hits – The Taxi Song.
