Bilingual Birdies

New York

Children have been learning languages with us though live music, dance and puppetry since 2006. Our fun curriculum-based program teaches Spanish, French, Mandarin and English to children up to age six. Each class is an unforgettable, educational and joyful experience.

How Bilingual Birdies Works

Our mission is to encourage cross-cultural awareness through our language and music curriculum to nurture children into becoming more open-minded adults.

Caregiver-and-Child Classes

Super fun 30-minute online classes are lead by native speakers who are outstanding bilingual musicians! Kids sing and dance as they increase vocabulary and celebrate diversity in each class. Spanish, French and Mandarin group classes are available in the morning and afternoon.


School Programs

Calling all School Directors! Give your students the bilingual advantage by partnering with us. We serve private preschools, Head Start, Early Head Start, Pre-K, TK, and afterschool programs.

We’ll set up your students with one of our Bilingual Birdies Teachers who are native speakers and trained musicians. We are available for online and in-person classes.

Do you have any bilingual teachers on staff? Support them in the classroom by licensing our curriculum to maximize their skill set and teach Spanish, French, or Mandarin to the children.

Empower your teachers with our PDs that will show them how to use music and movement to embrace diversity online and in person. Teachers do not need to be bilingual to benefit from our PDs.


Private Lessons & Birthday Parties

Want weekly classes with your own group of friends? Getting ready for your little one’s big day? We tailor the perfect private lessons and epic birthday parties to meet your specific needs. You select the day, time, language and place. We’ll bring the educational fun! Online options are available.
