Through this nationally recognized award-winning program, activities go a step beyond other music programs with a blend of singing, movement, story-time and instrument play in joyful classes. Kindermusik is much more than a music class. Children play and explore musical instruments and experience the joy of music and movement that promotes musical skills, coordination, language development, problem solving and social interaction. From ages birth through 3-1/2 children attend a 40-minute once-a week class with an adult. At ages 3 up to 7 years children experience from 1/2 hour to 50 minutes on their own with peers and teacher, and adult attends the final portion of the class to do activities together. A wide variety of music increases your child’s musical repertoire. Kindermusik educators are trained by Kindermusik International and pass rigorous requirements for licensing.
