In class, you’ll play, listen, sing (encouraged, but optional!), move, dance, and giggle with your child. It’s fun. Lots of fun. But the best part – your child will be learning and developing skills along the way.Each of our activities is designed to stimulate your child’s brain, strengthen developing neurons, build gross and fine motor skills, enhance social-emotional development, and much more. The research about music and children’s development is truly stunning. More and more, the eyes of the research community turn to music as a vehicle to deliver a learning experience to children. There is no doubt that research shows music helps children become better learners. Infants respond to music by cooing, smiling, and even swinging their arms or kicking their legs to the beat. Toddlers love to dance, swing, and sing as they develop their motor and aural skills. Preschoolers strengthen neural pathways by making up songs and rhymes as their imaginations run wild. But what’s more? All the research in the world can’t capture the pure joy and delight your child will experience in Kindermusik, both in the classroom and at home. We’ll help you foster a bond with your child that will last a lifetime. Parents tell us every day that they look forward to Kindermusik because they can really stop, breathe, center, and focus all their attention on their child. In our frantically paced lives, this time is becoming harder and harder to come by. Along with the classroom experience, you’ll also get our fantastic at-home materials. Depending on your chosen class, they may be digital or physical, or some combination. These materials help you bring the Kindermusik experience home, not only to continue the learning, but to continue all the fun! This includes Kindermusik’s outstanding recordings of diverse musical selections used in the class, with extra songs for listening enrichment. Selections draw from traditional folk material from around the world, jazz, bluegrass, classical repertoire and more. Plus: age-appropriate musical instruments, stories, parent resources and more!
