a good beginning never ends

The benefits of Kindermusik not only last a few months or a few years—they last a lifetime. In every Kindermusik class, you'll witness your child's developmental evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem and musicality. It’s not about making little Motzarts. It’s about developing life-enhancing skills in the whole child. Click here to read more about why music is so important to child development.

Every day
is a Kindermusik day

Kindermusik is much more than a weekly class filled with fun and adventure. It’s an enriching journey that lasts all week long. When you enroll in a Kindermusik class, you receive a CD of beautifully arranged songs from class, interactive story books to develop early literacy skills, a family activity book, and an instrument for music-making at home. These unique At Home Materials provide a powerful way for nurturing your child’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical and musical development – all while promoting a natural love of music and learning.

WHAT WILL WE DO IN A KINDERMUSIK CLASS AND WHY?

Singing fosters the development of your child's most important instrument, the voice, through vocal exploration, songs, and chants.

Moving develops body awareness, coordination, and spatial relationships through synchronized movement, creative movement, and simple dances.

Playing introduces a variety of musical timbres with percussion instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingle bells, drums, resonator bars, and simple instruments your child creates at home.

Creating stimulates your child's imagination and encourages new exploration with sound and movement.

Patterning boosts your child's ability to think musically through the integration of basic rhythmic and tonal language.

Listening cultivates your child's heightened attentiveness to sound discrimination.

Exploring timbre, dynamics, tempo, and pitch lays the foundation for conceptualization of the elements of music.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN CLASS

Songs and activities to be repeated at least four times because children need familiarity and repetition to learn new skills.

Good musical literature comprised of traditional folk songs and rhymes passed down from generation to generation to form the basis of the curriculum because these selections are melodically expressive and provide an exposure to cultural heritage.

Attention to each individual child during class because children have differences in tempo preference that need to be expressed in order for them to develop beat competency.

Parents and guardians to be active participants in class, singing, rhyming and dancing with the child because parents are the first teachers and role models for their children.

Parents and guardians to learn the songs and activities because repeating them at home during receptive moments will enhance the development of musical potential while parent or guardian and child spend quality time together.

Seven to eight weeks of classes to pass before new skills become evident.
