Listen to Music Outside!

Grab your bluetooth speaker, pick out your favorite playlist, head outside to your backyard, balcony, or stoop, and blast your music as loud as you can! Dance! Sing! BBQ! Enjoy time spent with your family and friends! Check out our playlist of inspiring songs to get ya started.

Create Your Own Soundtrack Using the Sounds of (Urban) Nature!

The beeps of car horns, the sound of children playing on the street, the animals at the zoo. Music is all around us! 

Take a day trip to the zoo (virtual or in-person).  What sounds are the animals making?

Spend the day at the park. Listen to the bells on the bicycles passing by: what patterns and rhythms do you hear? 

Go to a baseball game and sing the “YMCA” with the Yankees field crew! 

Enjoy listening to the wonderful sounds nature (and the city) has to offer!
