About J. Feierabend
A tidbit about FSiM
This is an early music education program for the Northern New Jersey communities for children ages 0-5 years old and their parents. Parental or Caregiver participation is required! This program was created to help bring back the tradition of music-making in families. It uses American folk song and rhymes as the base for its music-making, and holds to the belief that quality music creates community through this passing on of our own traditional songs and rhymes.
