Kindermusik introduces music to children (newborn to seven years old) and their families. This unique studio program offers group instruction to provide music learning and enjoyment to nurture a child’s total development. The teacher creates an environment in which children explore the world through music. Whether listening or moving, vocalizing or playing an instrument, creating or reading music, the focus is on a process, not on performance. When the environment speaks to the children, they respond with an enthusiastic and creative spontaneity. The benefits of early music education are seen throughout a child’s development in the form of increased self-confidence, enhanced reasoning, the ability to make distinctions between details, and a general sense of balance.
The Kindermusik curriculum involves the teacher, the children, and caregivers. Each semester combines a curriculum that offers listening, singing, movement, and reading. Children can continue their learning at home by participating in weekly activities, games, reading, and music.
