Sing & Play with your young toddler

This music class for younger toddlers provides a warm and welcoming introduction to music, immersing your toddler in rhythm, song, rhymes, instrument play, movement and steady beat activities to nurture his growth and development.

With you there to nurture and engage your child, a Kindermusik class gives your little one the perfect head start, musically and developmentally. 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 unit theme’s story.

level 2Toddlers (2-3 years)
Love, Laugh & Learn

Creativity and Confidence

For your toddler, every day brings new discoveries and opportunities to explore the
world. Despite a display of independence, your 2 & 3 year old still longs for the safety and security of parental closeness. During this time, toddlers relish the comfort of the familiar while also seeking the challenge of something new.

Kindermusik Level Two encourages children to be creative, to initiate their own ideas and to respond in their own ways, while your active participation gives them the security they need to join in on all the musical fun.

Individuality and Independence

Kindermusik Level Three is for your imaginative and curious preschooler (3-5 years). Each term combines 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 development and self-

control. Engaging unit themes such as Out and About, Make Believe and Around the Farm, keep your pre-schooler on their toes learning to love the world around them and the music in it.

Each class is 45-minutes of creative, musical play that is guided in a very specific, sequential way. Musical concepts and skills needed to succeed in learning an instrument are gradually developed and reinforced. Caregivers and siblings attend the last 15 minutes for a special Sharing Time where you do an activity together and are given information and tools to continue the learning at home with your Kindermusik@Home online materials.

Kindermusik for the Young Child: Building a Musical Foundation

Using a small-group approach to music education, Young Child provides a pressure-free developmentally appropriate transition where children can musically succeed before taking on specific instrumental or vocal instruction. Children develop a strong musical foundation as they are introduced to fundamental music concepts, musical vocabulary, notation, and the basics of vocal development.

In small, movement-oriented classes, 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. Children will gain hands-on experience with a range of musical instruments, including the glockenspiel, dulcimer and recorder during the course of this 4-semester programme. Parents or caregivers are encouraged to attend the last 10-15 minutes of class.

Young Child Semester 1 & 2 introduce the glockenspiel, a beautiful hand-crafted instrument with individually hand-drilled keys for accurate pitch. Children love creating melodies on this delightful sounding instrument. Young Child 3 features Appalachian music and the 2-string dulcimer and Young Child 4 introduces the recorder.

Young children who continue Kindermusik class into early school age will develop a greater capacity for learning and a lifelong love of music. These classes are a musical learning experience that set the stage for future school success and the transition into formal music lessons.
