More about  Karen K & the Jitterbugs 
Jitterbugs’ age-appropriate activities include vocal play, rhythm training, instrument exploration, musical games, movement and pretend play, all of which improve a child’s ability to think, reason, create and express.  Children also enjoy exploring all kinds of instruments in Jitterbugs classes, including egg shakers and assorted drums, as well as BPA-free rubber duckies, scarves, and a giant parachute!  A Jitterbugs class wouldn’t be complete without movement - a great way for kids to express themselves, learn basic musical concepts, and get their boogie on!  
 
Registrants receive a Karen K & the Jitterbugs CD to continue the learning and fun at home.  For more information about the Jitterbugs program, visit www.karenkjitterbugs.com
