Musicollaborative is excited to announce its upcoming FamJam Playshops for children 18 months-age 6 and the adults who love them. On Saturday, May 25th, Musicollaborative will present a Parent-Child FamJam at 10am for parents and their children 18mos-age 3, as well as a Multi-Age FamJam at 11:30 for siblings 18mos-6 years and their caregivers. Registration is now open for these affordable sessions hosted by the Annette West Music Studio near Tipitina's uptown. The FamJams will highlight the musical styles of New Orleans and south Louisiana, while offering opportunities to explore hand drums, movement and singing. Sessions are kept small so space is limited! For more information or to register please visit www.musicollaborative.org. We can also be found at www.facebook.com/musicollaborative.
