Popular local kids' music program Music for Sprouts is offering a subscription-based video series for families, with new videos released every Saturday for six weeks, starting on November 14.

The class-style videos are hosted by Chris Dorman and Emma Cook — known to young fans as Mister Chris and Miss Emma. Pre-pandemic, the musicians hosted interactive classes for toddlers and preschoolers and their caregivers at Bread & Butter Farm in Shelburne. Since the spring, they have been offering livestreams via social media five mornings a week. Dorman also hosts a musical children's program on Vermont PBS, Mister Chris and Friends, which won a regional Emmy award in June.

The series will be offered on a sliding scale, from free to $50. Each session will run 40 minutes and feature a warm-up for voices and bodies, seasonal tunes and sing-alongs with ABC Caterpillar. Each class will also include downloadable lyrics and chord sheets so families can play and sing along at home.

"Connection is so important right now," said Dorman "and it pains us not to be in the classroom with families at this time. That is why we made this series."
