Our baby music classes offer a sensory-rich yet caring and gentle environment. The activities and relationships you engage in will develop and strengthen your baby’s neural pathways, enhance your growing parent-child bond, and help you understand the how’s and why’s of your baby’s development. In class, babies and infants explore and react to new sounds, sensations, and environments. They begin to use developmentally appropriate instruments like shakers, rattles, drums, and tambourines in instrument-play activities that engage and develop both hemispheres of the brain. They benefit from both side-by-side play with other babies, and cuddling and rocking time with you. In baby class you’ll get to babble, hum, and dance together–all key ingredients in your baby’s development of early social skills.
Level 1 : 12-24 months
Kindermusik Level 1 class is an energetic and joyful celebration of the very young child’s growing new movement and language skills. A mix of parent-child joint activities and child-focused activities provide parents a unique opportunity to participate in all the music and movement fun, but also to stand back, observe, and revel in how these older babies and toddlers are beginning to walk, talk, sing, play, clap, tap, and dance—all on their own
Level 2: 2-3 Years
Kindermusik toddler classes encourage your child to be creative, to initiate her own ideas, and to respond in her own ways, while your presence and participation offer needed reassurance and support. You and your child will play and explore instruments together. You will sing and move to the music. And you’ll hear and act out simple stories and rhymes. Activities such as these will delight and engage your child, and at the same time build her self-confidence, self-control, and communication skills. Your Kindermusik teacher will help you understand what and how your toddler is learning and developing with each activity, and will share tips for weaving music into your daily routines at home.
Level 3: 3-5 years
Kindermusik classes for preschoolers offer children exciting first experiences with musical symbols and more complex instruments, laying the groundwork for formal music instruction. In class, your child will investigate a wide variety of musical concepts, such as notation; learn the basics of vocal development; play simple instruments; and explore music, games, and stories from other cultures. And as your child grows musically, she will be developing strong social-emotional, problem-solving, and pre-literacy skills that build school readiness and provide the perfect foundation for academic and social success later on.
