Kindermusik is an international music and movement program for children newborn to six. Each minute of class facilitates your child’s musical, language, cognitive, physical, social and emotional development. We provide amazing online home materials – music, stories, educational games and crafts to continue the fun and learning at home. Our 45-minute classes meet weekly and are led by Anne Hendrix, a licensed Kindermusik educator since 1998. Children and their parents will sing, dance, play rhythm instruments, and enjoy story time and quiet time together. Classes are divided into four levels and provide developmentally appropriate learning at each level.
Level 1: newborn to 18 months
Get ready to sing, play, and move with your little one in this high-energy music class designed to be just right for children under 18 months of age. This new Kindermusik curriculum focuses on your child’s beginning movement, helping to build the muscles your baby needs to walk, and vocal development, helping to nurture your child’s speaking and singing voice. With a mix of both parent-child joint activities and child-focused activities, you’ll be able to join right in on all the singing and dancing while also getting the chance to observe how your older baby or toddler learns on her own. Embark on Kindermusik’s fun new exploration of singing, swaying, laughing, and playing through Level 1, a just-right mix of early-childhood vocal play and language development, together time, and music and movement activities!
Level 2: 1 ½ to 3 years
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!) continues with the Kindermusik Online digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and each month’s story.
Level 3: 3 ½ to 5 years
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 Online digital home materials bring the music, activities, and each month’s story everywhere you go. The repetition enhances the learning—and the fun!
Level 4: 5-6 years
From the moment you became a parent, you wanted the best for your child. In class, 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 and notation — all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons. Parents join the fun for the final activities. The Kindermusik Online digital home materials extend the benefits all week long with music from class, activities for the whole family, and each month’s story. Ideal for homeschooling!
Kindermusik curricula are written by experts in early childhood music and development. They are thematic and change monthly.
