Music Classes for Toddlers “Our Time”
When life gets especially busy, it’s a special way to connect with my kids.
– Corey M
Meet Jack. His adorable two-year-old dance moves begin the moment he gets out of bed, and he sings through his breakfast. “Is it Kindermusik today, Mama?”
You already know your child loves music, so let’s nurture that!
An “Our Time” classroom is a very special place where each child’s learning style is welcomed and helped to flourish.
We love our active wrigglers and our keen-eyed observers; the ones who stick close to their parent and the ones who plop themselves down in the teacher’s lap!
“Our Time” treasures the parent-child bond while seeking to engage the children directly in musical discovery. Your little one will feel so special. You will see their confidence grow, new skills develop, and you will share with them a deep joy in the act of musical creation.

What we’ll do
Toddlers need to explore. Each class focuses on a specific musical concept, which we will explore in many different ways: listening to sounds, moving our bodies, singing, and playing a variety of percussion instruments. Special extras like hoops, parachute and some clever surprises will keep you and your child giggling all day!
Benefits for Toddlers
Up until about age 3, toddlers are mostly learning by observing and imitating others. That’s why the magical combination of parent and child with other adults in a Kindermusik class becomes one of the best kinds of opportunities for using music to fuel a child’s learning and development.
Your child is on the edge of a verbal explosion, and Kindermusik gives her lots of opportunities to practice and develop those budding language skills. Singing and vocal play along with Story Time, chants, and finger plays all help stimulate language development in a fun and pressure-free way.
For toddlers, learning to use their voices starts with imitating sounds, playing with the many sounds our voices can make, singing short songs, and chanting simple rhymes – all with you as a model and inspiration.
You’ll be able to enhance your child’s growing comprehension and cognitive skills through happy classroom routines like coming to get instruments and putting them away, musical activities that invite clapping and tapping to music, and themes that engage the toddler’s delightful sense of curiosity and imagination.
Gross Motor Skills
Toddlers on the go love all their Kindermusik classes – we’re never still for very long! From holding and shaking instruments to running and jumping to stopping and going, you will enjoy being part of helping your child’s skills blossom through a wide variety of creative movement.
