    Comment:  I just wanted to shout out Debbie Brukman's music class that is happening in Prospect Park or Zoom when the weather is below 40 degrees. Debbie was teaching amazing 0-5 year old music classes at Da Nonna Rosa Restaurant before the pandemic and has since moved to Zoom or Prospect Park. She has a brand new website and still has availability in her weekly classes but they are selling out!https://debbiebrukman.com/Highly recommended!

    Comment:  Welcome to the neighborhood. My neighbor Debbie Brukman does music classes for babies and toddlers in the park and on zoom when weather keeps us inside. The classes are really fun with participation from grown ups and kids. It’s socially distant and masked too. Closest to the GAP entrance.

    Comment:  Debbie's singalongs in the park (near GAP) are really sweet. It's $20 a class, about 30mins, and aimed at a mixed age group (although it's mostly 2s and under that turn up). I go with my 2 and 4 year old (siblings are free) on Tuesdays but she is there multiple times a week. Email her for availability if interested: debbiebrukman@gmail.com

    Comment:  Debbie Brukman has been offering her music classes in prospect park. I used to take my son as a baby when she had classes indoors and we recently rejoined with the outdoor classes. It’s a nice mix of babies and toddlers. She has classes at different times and days through the week.

    Comment:  This is Debbie Brukman's amazing class. Debbie's class is now called "QuaranTUNES with Debbie." We love it! It is a Facebook live class from Brooklyn for Babies, Toddlers, and Pre-K humans, she also does weekly pop up socially distant classes in the park . We've been part of it since my son was months, now he'd 2.5 and listening to Debbie is the first thing he asks for every morning. If you're interested you can email Debbie at debbiebrukman@gmail.com

    Comment:  Fine, I'll chime in too! My son Bruce has also been going to Debbie's class for a year and is musically obsessed. Drums everywhere and on everything, sings all the time, dances up a storm. Signing up for this music class was the one thing my nanny asked for when we hired her, and we're so glad she did!

    Comment:  Another endorsement here for Debbie’s music class. My girls look forward to it every week. We’ve been attendees for the past 2+ years, and it’s hands down the best singalong in the Slope. Debbie energetically leads the group with a giant repertoire of kid standards, and on occasion she sprinkles the set list with popular songs more familiar to parents and caregivers to accompany a good baby and toddler dance party. We can’t recommend it enough, and we can’t wait to come back for the fall.

    Comment:  My daughter and I have done this class for almost a year. We started when she was only a few months old and it has been such a highlight of each week. Debbie has created such a warm and welcoming environment in which the babies can explore music, instruments and movement. I really appreciate how much care Debbie takes with my daughter and also her boundless energy in our class!! We both leave happy every week! It’s also been wonderful because Debbie was very flexible with make ups which was super helpful due to my daughter’s ever changing schedule! I highly recommend this class!!

    Comment:  Big shout out for Debbie’s class! My son started her class when he was 2 and I’m excited for my daughter, who is 7 months, to start this fall. Debbie’s class is great for all ages. She has lots of fun instruments for the older kids to shake and the babies to chew on :) We have tried a bunch of music classes (some have been totally weird) and this is by far the best and most reasonably priced. You and your kids will be singing the ‘what’s your name’ song all the time. Plus it’s at a pizza shop, so easy lunch that day!

    Comment:  My son Liam and I have been a part of Debbie’s music community for the past year and are excited to continue with more classes this fall. Debbie creates a wonderful and nurturing musical atmosphere and she truly gets to know all of the kids, babies, parents and nannies alike. I only wish we would have found Debbie years ago when my older son was around for classes - but! Debbie is so cool to let older siblings join in if they are off from school for a holiday, so he has gotten to enjoy a couple of classes, too! Everyone wins!

    Comment:  I have to chime in on this thread as well. I have been taking Debbie's class since my 4 year old was a baby - and I now go with my almost 2 year old. I have made great friends in the class - and to echo what Noa said, it IS a real community. My not so shy 4 year old literally throws himself at Debbie when he sees her - and my very shy baby has chosen Debbie as one of the few adults she will actually go to and hug. The songs we sing in class are mostly ones you already know - so you don't have to learn a ton of random songs in order to participate - and while every class follows the same general pattern, each class is different and fun! This class is a park slope MUST!

    Comment:  Another voice from a parent who adores Debbie almost as much as her son does! Not only is it a terrific, fun, not-syrupy-sweet but often hip (without having to wear cool clothes) music class, Debbie has created real community in these 45 minutes. Moms, dads, grandparents and beloved babysitters rock out with the kids--it's unlike any music class I've been to. We keep coming...

My older son has been going to Debbie's class since he was one and it's just terrific. She's super engaging and my son would talk about Debbie and sing the music all week long. She's very flexible about make ups and bringing along siblings. We're looking forward to attending again this winter with my little one!

    Comment:  We have been taking debbie brukman's music class at da nonna rosa (7th between carroll and Garfield) for the past year or so and its wonderful. It's good for babies up through 5 year olds and when older siblings are off school for the day and come to class, they even have fun! You don't have to learn new songs (some classes have their own music). There were definitely songs I learned in class - but the majority are the classic kids songs we grew up with. The best part is, it's reasonably priced [...] We have no affiliation other than being huge fans of Debbie and her class.

    Comment:  Not really sure how much more I can add, except that Debbie's class is one of the few classes I think is actually underpriced. They are literally cheaper on a price per class basis than other music classes…and definitely superior.Debbie taught my older 2 children music at CBE's preschool and when she decided run toddler classes at da Nonna Rosa I was thrilled. I also love supporting both Debbie and a local restaurant that has always been welcoming to families with crazy kids.All in Debbie's classes are fun, low key and a great value. And she is a wonderful person. What more could we ask for in the neighborhood?

    Comment:  Indeed, Debbie is a household name... It is amazing how a 45-minute music class with Debbie can last an entire week. My two year old daughter speaks about her all the time, singing songs that Debbie introduced her to.... Debbie is magnetic and children both love and learn from her. We are so fortunate that she is part of our community.
