Expecting Parents

How exciting! You’re going to have a baby!

Rockness Music offers wonderful classes for babies and their parents.  Our classes target multiple areas of mental and physical stimulation for your baby! Shakers, dancing props and drums allow babies to hone in on their fine motor skills. Our songs and sing-a-longs offer a chance for the children to engage in verbal expression and exploration with their parents or caregivers.

We highly suggest coming in to try our class first. There are so many classes to choose from, and although we hope you join us, perhaps trying the class first will give you an idea of what you are looking for in your child’s first music class.

Our class exists for the modern parent looking for a different, upbeat, and engaging approach to baby music classes. Come and try a class with us today. We’re here, full of care and ready to rock

Play Music for Your Child

We highly suggest playing music for your baby in utero. What music should you play for your baby? Classical music of course! We suggest playing a variety of soft classical music for your child. Vivaldi is always a great option! Then, when you’re ready, we have just the class for you!

"As a mother to a VERY active 2 year old, I confess we have struck out at many music classes. It takes a lot to get her into a group activity like this. She enjoyed Rockness Music at her daycare and would sing the songs at home so when I saw they had classes in Montclair, I decided to see what it was that got her so into it. Well...now I know. These classes are so incredibly enjoyable and Mr. Michael is the perfect person for my 2 year old to rock out with. She gets SO excited and is on her feet the entire time, engaging with the class. I'm so glad we signed up!"

"I absolutely love this class! This is the only music class that my 18 month old son enjoys because he can run and dance in the center of the room. Most classes require children to sit in a circle and sing baby songs. This class has instructors with real instruments, singing well written music. I love how we are not singing along to a cd during class... Who wants to pay for that? "

"Best music class!!!! It is so entertaining, interactive and also educational. I love that the teacher introduces different musical instruments in each class and lets the kids play with them. My daughter loves the class and I am very happy with the quality of the class. The teachers do a fantastic job! I totally recommend Rockness Music classes."

"My daughter and I absolutely love this class! My husband and mother think it’s great too! All of the songs are original and fun. The instructors are talented and professional. My daughter loves dancing with her shakers along to the songs as well as participating in the dance party with streamers. She also loves exploring different musical instruments now and playing them at home. She has already learned so much in the class, and I look forward to continuing to see her progress. I highly recommend Rockness Music."

"We love Rockness Music!! My son will use anything he can to sit on and drum like the teacher. He's learned new instruments as well as how to count and say colors in Spanish. The class is also fun for the adults, which is important too! Our biggest takeaway is that my shy little toddler has really come out of his shell. The teacher has never pushed him and he SLOWLY got comfortable. Now he's dancing and singing in class and, at home when you're not looking, he does a great Rockness Music teacher impression!!"

"This is not your typical music class-- it's so much better! Live (catchy!) music, mystery discovery instruments, shakers, ribbon dancing, drumming, and so much more. The teacher brings an infectious energy to every class and he understands that every child will engage with the music in his/her own way. It's one of the only classes I've made sure to do with all three of my children. Highly recommend! Come prepared to rock!"

"We’ve been going to Rockness Music for a couple of years now! We love it so much and look forward to our Friday classes in Maplewood every week. Sometimes she’s not in a great mood but the class always transforms her into a happy dancing kid. We also enjoy the cds they give out so we can rock out whenever we want! "
