Description

Bilingual Birdies is a super fun foreign language and music program where we teach basic vocabulary and short phrases in Spanish through music, dance, and puppetry. It is similar to Kindermusik in that the root of the entire class is based in music. In Bilingual Birdies, the music is very hip and upbeat which evokes positive emotion and triggers memory. This makes learning new words a joyful experience. The primary goal of a Bilingual Birdies class is to teach new vocabulary in a foreign language, celebrate diversity, and have fun while learning!

ZeeGreenBirdieNEW UNITS ARE COMING! This Fall we are proud to “Seize the day with Zee!”. New units are Body Parts, Jungle Animals, Manners, and Family.

There are so many benefits to exposing a child to a second language before the age of five. The list includes:
  1. Advanced cognitive development
  2. Stronger executive function
  3. Heightened sensitivity for other languages and cultures to become a more open-minded adult
  4. Increased opportunities in global job market

Marisol LaBoy is our Bilingual Birdies licensee. She is also one of our seasoned and outstanding Grow and Sing Studios Kindermusik educators. She is a native speaker and her love for the Spanish language and Latin culture makes us proud to have her leading the bilingual fun at Grow and Sing! She is so excited to transform our Zoom room into an unforgettable cultural experience while introducing Spanish vocabulary through song, dance, and puppetry.

BirdiesInAPartyThe Bilingual Birdies we have met so far! The Bilingual Birdies are a group of five best friends who all met in New York City at Love-A-Lot Preschool, which is a multilingual school and highlights various languages from all over the world. Each of these friends comes from a different background where they speak different languages at home with their families. So far here at Grow and Sing Studios, we have introduced three year old Myla Birdie. She is the leader of the pack and she is from Mexico. She grew up speaking Spanish at home and is extremely proud of her heritage. We met Biko Birdie this past Summer. He is a very funny and clumsy friend of Myla. He grew up speaking Spanish at home because his grandparents are from Colombia. Biko is a bright blue, bold, and courageous birdie who sticks up for his friends and loves pizza. Zee Birdie is joining us for the first time this Fall! Four year old, he is a child of hippie parents and speaks three languages – Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese and English. His family is from Macau and he truly got the best of many worlds growing up there and traveling all over the world. Those travels have taught him to respect all cultures, languages, and diverse people.

Bilingual Birdies was first started in New York City 12 years ago by Sarah Farzam, a trilingual educator and graduate from UCLA. The program has been featured on CNN, NY Times, Univision, BBC, and the Today Show. It has also become the premiere foreign language and music program for preschoolers and toddlers. The curriculum was created in collaboration with outstanding music therapists from NYU, the best musicians in New York from all over the world, and PhDs from the World Arts and Culture department from UCLA. Bilingual Birdies licensed educators are incredible bilingual early educators who have a genuine love for music, language, culture, and of course sharing all of that with children.

Since the back end office system we use with Kindermusik International was created for an in person, ongoing experience there are a few things in the following sign up form we weren’t able to customize. So, please be assured of the following:

1. Online classes START on August 31, 2020 but goes much more often and longer than Monday at 11am since Kindermusik Virtual+ is included in your enrollment package. We were forced to list something in order to make enrollment possible. You’ll have unlimited access to any and all broadcasts!
2. We only have permission to broadcast live. Recording music by Kindermusik goes against our license agreement with Kindermusik International, as well as child protection laws.
