Kindermusik

In every Kindermusik class, your child is welcomed into a playful and nurturing environment where they will sing, move, play instruments, and hear stories—all while developing social skills, problem-solving skills, pre-math skills, and a foundation for reading.

Our research-based curriculum focuses on whole-child development and helps you understand how your child is developing musically, cognitively, and socially.

Kindermusik foundations

Babies 0 – 18 months

Foundations For Babies 0-18 mo Music is one of your baby’s favorite things – AND it’s one of the best things for your baby’s developing mind. Babies’ brains are filled with billions of neurons just waiting to be connected through sensory stimulation. That’s what we do when we’re in Kindermusik: we offer a sensory rich environment, complete with music, movement and fun, to create and strengthen baby’s neural pathways. Each Kindermusik class touches on every learning domain, creates special bonding moments, and begins to instill a lifelong love of music.

Level 2 for Toddlers 18mo – 3 y Kindermusik for Toddlers encourages children at this stage to uncover an engaging musical world while building confidence, self-control, and communications skills. Singing, imitating sounds, rhyming, and object identification foster language skills, while creative movement to various musical “moods” develops a sense of balance, timing, and spatial awareness. Listening and turn-taking encourage blossoming social skills. This special class is a unique opportunity for parent and child to interact and learn together in an unhurried and joyful manner.

Kindermusik Level 3

3 – 5 years

Our Level 3 Imagine That! courses embrace the exuberance of the 3 and 4 year old in a musical learning curriculum that integrates music, expressive language, peer interaction and pretend play. Current research confirms that pre-schooled age children thrive on participatory, expressive learning. We integrates carefully planned thematic activities, diversity of music, and involve both children and parents in purposeful learning during Sharing Time and at home. You as a parent or caregiver will be present for the last fifteen minutes of each class. For children with some English experience, either at home, in the Kindergarten or having lived abroad.

For English Learners:

Kindermusik Laugh & Learn is an exciting mix of music and movement activities proven to help young children learn English while at play! This course is ideal for children who are learning English as a second language and who maybe don’t speak English at home or in the Kindergarten.

Using music, which stimulates and enhances language acquisition, and whole-body physical expression, which improves retention, each lesson is effective and enjoyable for all. Themed lessons build on each other so children can move from learning target words to using them successfully. Students will enjoy exploring kid-friendly topics like farm animals, vehicles and daily activities. Family style class with parent and younger siblings present.

Kindermusik for mixed ages

0 – 6 years

With older children ready to show the little ones how it’s done and the younger ones eager to learn, this class becomes a multi-layered learning environment. Each week, we will introduce basic musical concepts and then give you the instruments, and the structured free time to put those concepts into play.

Your children will listen to instruments and to each other, learn from their peers and older children, and enjoy music and movement with hoops, scarves and tumble-around play. Story time and family jams, puppet play and happy singing – all the activities that encourage discovery and exploration and foster sharing and social skills too. In this special place for musical, social and emotional learning, your children will strengthen their ties with each other and with you – and they’ll start developing the skills they’ll need in school and on the neighbourhood playground.
