With an array of styles, Gymboree music classes help children explore the power of rhythm, melody, tonality, and beat while nurturing key physical, social, and intellectual skills. The music styles visited include Latin, African, disco, and rock ‘n’ roll; some of the featured bands are the Beatles, Queen, and Abba. Gymboree’s use of popular adult music rather than children’s songs helps make the classes fun for the entire family.

During the recent “Divas” lesson, children and parents enjoyed singing, playing instruments, dancing, and playing movement games to popular songs by Diana Ross, Shania Twain, Mariah Carey, and others.

Music classes are available for children from six months to five years old. For more information about music classes and Gymboree’s unique, age-appropriate programming, go to

Look out for special campaigns on offer at Gymboree, including waiving of membership fees and monthly discounts. — NICOLE YAMADA
