The Jewish Museum will present Dirty Socks Music Romps, a weekly music class for toddlers on ten Tuesdays from September 20 through November 22, 2011. This hip and original class is being taught by Mike Messer, lead singer of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band. Two sessions are offered, the first from 10:00 to 10:45 am, and the second from to 11:00 to 11:45 am. Toddlers ages 6 months to 4 years will play on a series of kid-sized instruments, learn to keep beats, and have a chance to dance, jump, clap, sing, and laugh. The songs used in the class are an upbeat mix of Dirty Sock hits, kid friendly rock songs, children's classics, and tunes from Sock-A-Delic, the new Dirty Sock Funtime Band album. Each song is an invitation to participate through call-back lyrics, interactive dances, and hands-on jamming. All families will receive a Dirty Sock Funtime Band CD..
