Winner of the 2022 Philly Family Magazine "Family Favorite" and Main Line Parent "Best Music Class" awards, the 2021 Philly Family "Best Music Class" and Main Line Parent "Family Favorite" awards and the 2019 and 2018 Hulafrog "Best Music Class" awards, Roots With Ruark brings you and your little one a music class full of energy and excitement that is not to be missed for the 0-5 age group. With many thousands of classes, parties, concerts and events under his belt, 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 play with little instruments all while listening to an exciting mix of original music, kids classics, Disney hits 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 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 a decade worth 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.
