Rocky Mountain Aardvarks

Rocky Mountain Aardvarks (RMA) is the Colorado branch of a groovy tree with roots in Brooklyn, NY.  RMA founder, Janet Casson, taught Music For Aardvarks and Other Mammals in New York. When she moved out West in May 2011, she brought the wacky and wonderful program to share with families of the Mile High City. Since its first session in the summer of 2011, RMA has grown to include Music for Aardvarks classes for infants, toddlers and preschool-aged kids.

When Janet moved from Denver in the summer of 2015, Hank Williams was brought in with a new crop of teachers to carry the torch that Janet had lit. Hank became the Director of Awesomeness in 2019 and will continue to play hard for all the front range families at classes, parties, and concerts!

This program brings a smart and silly, educational and entertaining, insightful and playful alternative to the Denver/Boulder kids’ music scene.  A vibrant music selection helps instill an appreciation and understanding of melody and rhythm that will linger long after the last note is played.  We make it fun—not only for children, but adults as well—by sharing original songs about the trials and tribulations of being a kid, getting to know the world around us and looking at the familiar in a new way.  We’re not just about entertaining, though that will help the learning sink in deeper.  And we’re not just about the education, though learning is fun!  The songs are original, the vibe is funky, and the time you’ll have is rockin’ good one!

Don't Take Our Word For It

"You will listen to the music... even when your kids are not around. And unlike some other children's selections, it will not make you angry."
Jon Stewart
"My daughter loves these songs..."
Helen Hunt
"It's real music - the songs are so good!"
Page McConnell (of the band Phish)
"It's no exaggeration to say that Weinstone has changed the musical geography of kids music. As creator of the MFA classes that take place all over the country, his music has gotten thousands of tiny toes tapping."
