Beginning January 29, The Jewish Museum will present Music Off the Wall, a new music and art series for toddlers on eight Tuesdays from 9:45 to 10:30 am. Led by musician and museum educator Mark Dzula, leader of the innovative and one-of-a-kind kid's band Jukebox Radio, this series offers a hip and playful blend of looking at art through a musical lens. Toddlers and their adult companions can discover fun ways to explore the Museum's galleries together through song, movement and hands-on activities. This series is designed for children ages 2 to 3.
The registration fee for each ten-class course is $275.00 per child; and $250.00 for Jewish Museum family members. Parents registering siblings receive a 20% discount for the second child. Class size is limited and early registration is recommended. Adults are asked to accompany their children. Further information is available at 212.423.3326 or TheJewishMuseum.org/musicclass.
Mark Dzula, along with wife and fellow educator/artist Ardina Greco, founded and co-directs Jukebox Radio, which brings art experiences and educational shows to audiences of all ages. Jukebox Radio uses shadow puppets, projections and music in collaboration with museums and cultural institutions to develop programming to highlight and engage visitors with work on view.
