Welcome to Little Folkies!

Little Folkies is a folk music class for children ages 0-5 and their grown-ups. The classes are mixed ages with babies, toddlers preschoolers, parents, grandparents and caregivers all getting together every week and singing together like one big family! After the first few weeks the students gets more and more comfortable and familiar with the music and by the end of the semester everyone is singing along and doing the movement to the songs. Even the little ones join in and although some may be shy in class they’ll usually sing the songs like nobody’s watching in the comfort of their home. The sound of everyone's voices ringing together and the sweet, gentle and simple songs with lyrics easy enough for baby and grandma to sing along to is soothing to the child and creates positive early musical memories for them which they’ll carry with them throughout their life. Here at Little Folkies we share the knowledge that music is at the core of every human being, and we believe that all children should experience genuine, heart felt, acoustic music making which will increase their musical confidence and give them a healthy relationship to music right from the start.
With no expectation, no judgement and love for all, our multi-talented teachers bring everyone to song and guide the grown-ups with their little ones with tips for how to do the song with the babies and engaging conversation with the older kids. There is a place for every child at little folkies, and there is never a dull moment in a little folkies class. The teacher leads the students through a fun and engaging arc incorporating finger play, hand movement, fun lap song activities, call and response singing and hands-on jamming with shakers and wooden kids instruments. The songs sung in class are the well-loved Little Folkies originals by Irena Eide and a hand-picked selection of beautiful and unique folk songs for children.
