Wiggleworms



Let's PLAY music!

Hyde Park, Instituto Cervantes, Evanston, Glencoe, Western Springs, and in our outreach partnership in Lawndale, more than 2000 infants, toddlers, and preschoolers along with parents, grandparents, and special caregivers join in the fun of PLAYING music!

Early childhood is the perfect time for exposing children to such significant experiences with the language of music. Classes are 45 minutes long and limited to 10-12 children with parent-caregiver. Classes are designed for developmental age groups that expand as children grow. Throughout Wiggleworms, young children and their families enjoy musical time together as they develop a lifelong love for making music! Let's play!
