Program Notes

Acopladitos is a Spanish immersion music program for young children. The word "acopladitos" in Spanish can be translated to mean "being together in complete harmony" and refers to much more than just music. The program is designed to cultivate your child's first musical encounters through singing, creative movement, music-making, games and dramatic play. This energetic and interactive "mommy & me" music class incorporates wonderfully original songs with a repertoire of popular Latin American children's songs.

Designed and led by composer Angelica Negrón and ethnomusicologist Noraliz Ruiz in collaboration with visual artist Tatiana Arocha, the program was created to fill a void in early childhood Spanish-language music education in New York City. The Brooklyn-based team of experienced educators and artists saw a demand for engaging children in a more collaborative and exciting musical experience that nurtures the child's artistic, intellectual, physical, and socio-emotional development, with appealing music that parents would enjoy as much as their children.

"Angélica and Nora are wonderful!

They have created a fun and educational music class that I wholeheartedly recommend to all of my friends who are parents. My son has learned so much about musical instruments, Spanish words and songs.

I am absolutely delighted!"
