WHAT: FunikiJam is part class and part live show - with kids in the starring roles! Starting with a high-energy warm up and hello song, they play instruments, sing, dance, and laugh their way through seasonal celebrations from global destinations giving students the chance to solo on featured instruments, jam with the group and sing into a microphone.
ABOUT: Built on the original rhymes, chants, songs and stories of founder Brian Barrentine, FunikiJam started with a Nashville playgroup in 1999. Now, FunikiJam has evolved into a landmark early childhood education and entertainment organization with an annual reach of over 70,000 patrons. From NYC headquarters, FunikiJam delivers its trademark "music exploration for the next generation" across the globe through classes, live shows, musical recordings, video production and teacher training.
