What is HooteNanny?

HooteNanny is a program of music classes for families, created and taught by Nerissa and Katryna Nields.

Classes include:

Nerissa and Katryna NeildsHooteNanny is about music, family and community, and the ways in which learning to sing, play and dance can enhance all three. Music is hand selected by nationally renowned folk-rock musicians, Nerissa and Katryna, better known as The Nields.  The music is chosen for its accessibility, but also for its musicality and ability to bear repeated listening and singing.  Classes are aimed equally at fostering musical children and at encouraging family connections. HooteNanny is all about singing, dancing, playing small instruments and most importantly, indulging the imagination and creativity of the families who participate.  Learn more here.

Winter Hoot starts in January!

A new session of the popular HooteNanny music classes will begin January 9th and 10th and will run or 9 weeks. The songs for this winter will remind you of your own childhood (The Hammer song, The Fox, La Bamba) and will gee you new tunes to sing with your child (Nerissa’s song about Animal families- Did you know that a family of rabbits is called a warren? Or Unicorns, a blessing? Or hummingbirds, a charm?) We have a lot of fun. Grown ups find wonderful new friendships at HooteNanny; babies and children develop musical understanding; but best of all, parents and children get an uninterrupted, laid back, 45 minutes of beautiful connection which is hard to come by these days.

Give yourself the gift of time with your babe and music will carry you both throughout the week!

Classes will be at Studio Helix on the third floor of Thorne’s Marketplace in Northampton, MA
Wednesdays 9:30
Wednesdays 4:00
Thursdays 9:30

All classes are taught by Katryna Nields.
