Kindermusik Classes

Sing & Play

Sing & Play (for infants through 2-year-olds)

Sing & Play is an energetic and joyful celebration of the very young child’s growing new movement and developing language (and pre-language) skills. As parents and children play, dance and explore together, parent-child bonds are strengthened and little ones learn and grow before our eyes.  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 babies and toddlers are beginning to crawl, walk, babble, talk, sing, play, clap, tap, and dance—all on their own!

Upcoming Units:

September “I Can Do That”   

October  Big Red Barn”   

November  “On the Town with Bear”

Wiggle Grow

Wiggle & Grow (for toddlers age 2 & 3)

This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and her new friends and you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with the Kindermusik@Home digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and each month’s story.

Upcoming Units:

Laugh & Learn

Laugh & Learn (for preschoolers age 3 & 4)

Each week in class we combine your preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. We also connect you with other parents who share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler. Parents join class for the final activities. The Kindermusik@Home digital home materials bring the music, activities, and each month’s story everywhere you go. The repetition enhances the learning—and the fun!

Young Child

Young Child (for 5 to 7-year-olds)

From the moment you became a parent, you wanted the best for your child. In all 4 semesters of Young Child classes, we engage your child in music and movement activities that also promote language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Plus, your child will learn basic music vocabulary, notation and ensemble skills—all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons. Parents are encouraged to join the fun for the final activities. The Kindermusik@Home digital home materials extend the benefits all week long with music from class, activities, and more.

Cuddle & Bounce (for babies and 1-year-olds)

In Cuddle & Bounce, a joyful first Kindermusik experience, parents and their newborns, infants, and crawlers engage in instrument play, dance, exploration time, and together time. As they do so, they strengthen critically important early parent-child bonds; learn about their babies’ early development, fine-tune their baby-communication skills, and receive expert advice and parenting resources based on the most recent research in early childhood development. Welcome to the magic time of life, that all-too-fleeting first chapter of life when miracles happen daily!

Which class works for you?

We love that Kindermusik has never been a “one size fits all” program.  This has never been more true than with our new curricula.

While Kindermusik is generally divided up into several core levels, you have choices, depending on your child’s developmental stage and chronological age, your goals for your child, what scheduling you might need, and the experience you want.

Kindermusik is all about the right experience at the right time.  Since those early years of childhood go by so quickly, we encourage parents to linger and enjoy each level, since each one provides such a rich foundation of learning that is exactly what your child needs at this exact moment.  That’s what being developmentally appropriate means.  And don’t worry, our new curricula offer you maximum flexibility to move up to the next class level when you – or your child! – are ready.

For BABIES (0s and 1s) … Cuddle & Bounce
This class is just right for our newborns, lap babies, and crawlers – the younger ones who aren’t yet walking – along with their special adult.

With age-appropriate activities for newborns, infants and crawlers, this parent-child music and movement class will help you strengthen those early parent-child bonds, understand your baby’s development, and heavily focus on child development and communication with your baby. You and your baby will enjoy instrument play, dance, exploration time, and together time-and you’ll get expert advice and parenting resources based on the most recent research in baby development.

For BABIES and YOUNG TODDLERS (0s, 1s and 2s)… Sing & Play
This class is designed for newborns, lap babies, crawlers and young walkers – along with their special adult.

With age-appropriate activities, this parent-child music and movement class will help you strengthen those early parent-child bonds, understand your child’s development, and heavily focus on child development and communication with your baby or young toddler. You and your child will enjoy instrument play, dance, exploration time, and together time-and you’ll get expert advice and parenting resources based on the most recent research in baby and young toddler development.

For OLDER TODDLERS (2s and 3s)… Wiggle & Grow
Your child changes a lot in the toddler years, and this class is just perfect for your toddler who is learning to be independent and yet still loves – and needs! – special time with you.

This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and her new friends and you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening.

For PRESCHOOLERS (3s and 4s)… Laugh & Learn
If your preschool-aged child is developing a longer attention span, loves to share ideas, and is learning to wait his turn, this class will support and encourage his blossoming independence.

Each week in class we combine your preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. We also connect you with other parents who share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler, especially when it’s time for everyone to join with us for our weekly Sharing Time at the end of class.

For BIG KIDS (5 to 7 yrs)… Kindermusik for the Young Child
If your child is ready for that next big step, Kindermusik for the Young Child is the next right choice to help prepare your child for success in music lessons and in school.

In Kindermusik for the Young Child, your budding musician will be introduced to fundamental musical concepts, notation, and the basics of vocal development. Children explore a wide variety of musical styles and the instruments of the orchestra through group ensemble play, music, games, and stories from many cultures. These classes provide a rich musical foundation that sets the stage for future academic success and the transition into formal music lessons.

For FAMILIES (0 – 7 yrs)… Wiggle & Grow Family Style
For families who love to be together, our family style classes give you the music, the time, and the inspiration to enjoy and learn from each other.
Each Kindermusik family class is a happy shared experience full of singing, moving, cuddling, family jams, and more.  You’ll love the time to explore, discover, share, make friends, and just be together as you learn and play together.  From newborn to Grandpa and everyone in between, there’s room in a family class for everyone!
