LEARN MUSIC BY PLAYING MUSIC!
Part of being a kid in Chicago is rocking out with kindie-folk favorite Electric Neil Firstenleit a.k.a Mr. Singer. Electric Neil leads the wildly popular bi-weekly sing-alongs at Lincoln Park Zoo, he taught Wiggleworms for 12 years at the Old Town School of Folk Music, and now city kids can jam with Electric Neil in a whole new personalized way at his own musical funHaus: LeitHaus Studios Chicago!
Electric Neil is known for his colorful getups, warm personality and upbeat original music. He shares it all here at the LeitHaus. Group music lessons introduce kids to the essentials and get them excited about expressing themselves through music-making with their folks and friends. Expect an energetic whirlwind of call-and-response sing-alongs, movement and hands-on instrument time. Kids can select an instrument from the LeitHaus Wall Of Sound —acoustic guitar, ukulele, banjo, or synthesizer —and create their own World Of Sound! Sometimes there’s even an added bonus: our beloved Kerry Appleberry, who joins the fun and sweetens the sounds.
