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.

If you want a taste of Hoot but can’t make it to a weekly class, you could join us for Nields Family HooteNanny. It is a sing along, a jam along, a musical chorus and a HooteNanny class all rolled into one. We meet about once a month on a Sunday afternoon from 4pm-5pm at First Churches on the corner of Main and Center St in Northampton. The next two meetings are May 18th and June 1st.
