Timbalooloo Jazz for Kids
Suggested Ages: 2 to 14+
A monthly interactive concert series led by internationally-renowned clarinetist Oran Etkin celebrates music and diversity with special guests that introduce children and families to the rich global culture in New York and beyond. Renowned early-jazz expert Vince Giordano brings in his collection of vintage low-end instruments: the tuba, bass-sax, and a metal upright bass as well as the banjo. Vince and Oran will take the children on a journey starting with the sounds of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, traveling up the Mississippi and all the way to New York.
The Timbalooloo method brings instruments to life and encourages children to “talk” through music, activating children’s imagination and encouraging their self-expression. Designed to teach children complex musical concepts through age-appropriate games and stories, Timbalooloo makes music fun and educational.
