Roots With Ruark brings you and your little one a music class full of energy and excitement with that one on one connection that is so vital for the 0-5 age group. With over 5,000 classes under his belt and over 1,000 parties and events, Ruark's musical repertoire and experience are second to none. You and your little one will rock out with egg shakers, dance with scarves and streamers and play with little instruments all while listening to an exciting mix of original music, kids classics and all of your favorite rock/pop tunes, from classic rock to top 40 hits of today. Want to hear a song that's not part of Ruark's repertoire? No problem, he's always eager to learn or write a new song for you and your little one! Each class ends with parachute and bubble time and some one on one contact with the guitar where your baby or toddler can strum, tap on and explore the instrument. Word of mouth has always been Ruark's biggest ally and hundreds of families can't be lying. Try a class today and show your little one what it's like to fall in love with music. We'll plant a song and watch it grow.
