Frequently Asked Questions

How old should my child be to attend Sign-a-Song?

As with speaking, there is no need to wait to start signing with your child. At Sign-a-Song children typically range in age from 3 months to 3 years.  The youngest babies are fascinated by the animation of the signs combined with the music, while at about 6 months and beyond, children begin to have the capability to retain and eventually produce the signs in class and at home.

Do you use American Sign Language at Sign-a-Song?

Yes, at Sign-a-Song only American Sign Language vocabulary is used.

Will signing interfere with my child’s speech development?

Not at all.  Studies indicate that babies who sign develop a strong command of language and are motivated to speak.  The power of language is instilled early on, and the benefits of signing and learning a second language continue for years to come.

Wha t will be taught at Sign-a-Song?

Each week we will focus on a theme that relates to the lives of young children (for example, food, animals, nighttime, and play).  Songs, stories, and activities that help clarify these themes will be highlighted. Regular r epetition will also be emphasized to reinforce the vocabulary from prior weeks.

What type of music do you sing at Sign-a-Song?

We place a tremendous effort in selecting and writing songs that appeal to both children and parents alike, from quiet folk songs to bopping rock and roll.  Of course, live guitar music is central to the Sign-a-Song experience.

Is each 10 week session the same?

During each 10 week session we introduce new songs and new themes, with some overlap for our more popular tunes. As a new or returning family, you would feel equally comfortable in any of our classes.

If I miss a class, can I make it up?

Yes. We offer a flexible schedule. So if you are unable to attend a class, you are invited to make it up at any of our other time slots or locations during the same ten-week session.

Do you offer a discount for twins?

Yes. For twins we do not apply the sibling rate.  Two for the price of one!
