Welcome to Kindermusik

by Mini Music Makers

Meet Cathy

Cathy has been interested in music and dance for as long as she can remember.  She was always encouraged to sing, dance, play instruments and perform from the very beginning. She has been teaching Kindermusik now for 10 years. Cathy is thrilled that she can combine her passion and love of music, movement and dance and share this love with young babies and children. She believes every child and adult are musical and loves tapping into this in such a friendly, happy, fun and nurturing environment.

For a Child's Brain, Body, Heart, and Soul

About Kindermusik
Music is powerful. It can excite, energise, calm, and comfort. It can thrill you with its beauty or reduce you to tears. It can lift your mood after a bad day; invoke a memory from long ago; and get you tapping, swaying, and dancing when you least expect it. But music’s ability to conjure emotions is only part of why it’s so incredible. Music is a wonderful conduit for learning, especially in young children. When paired with movement and instrument play, it creates neurological magic, lighting up a child’s brain and positively impacting all areas of development. The benefits of music education are truly transformational.
In Kindermusik’s music-and-movement classes, children experience music of varying styles, genres, and cultures. They interact with other children and engage in movement, rhythm, and vocal activities that develop far more than just music skills. Our approach to early childhood education and award-winning, research-based, and developmentally appropriate curricula prime children for success in school and in life.

Classes

Village

 

Village | Newborn to 18 months

Class Length: 45 minute class each week

Class Size: Class with no more than 12 babies with parents

What a Parent/Carer and Child Will Experience in Class:

  • Variety of Music — Musical diversity builds strong neural pathways in a baby’s forming mind, which is why each Kindermusik semester contains an array of styles, sounds, and genres.
  • Instrument Play — Age-appropriate experiences with child-safe instruments enhance a sense of rhythm and steady beat, develops a keen awareness of the distinguishing qualities of sound, and encourages spontaneity and creativity.
  • Dance — A classroom full of baby and adult pairs dancing together helps a little body develop the muscle strength needed to crawl and walk and helps a little heart to fall in love with the sheer joy of responding to music.
  • Together Time — A Kindermusik class is truly the essence of “quality time,” offering the parent a place to create special memories with their child, gain new insights into their child’s development, and nurture their child’s natural love of music.
Our Time

 

Our Time! | Ages 18 months – 3 years

Class Length: 45 minute class each week

Class Size: Class with no more than 12 children with parent/carers

For the toddler, every day brings new discoveries and opportunities to explore the world.  Despite a display of independence, the 1.5 to 3 year old child still longs for the safety and security of parental/carer closeness. During this time, toddlers still relishes the comfort of the familiar while also seeking the challenge of something new.

Kindermusik Our Time encourages children to be creative, to initiate their own ideas and to respond in their own ways, while the parents/carers active participation gives the toddlers the security they need. Playing instruments, singing, moving, and exploring uncover an engaging musical world while building the toddlers confidence, self-control, and communications skills.

What a Parent/Carer and Child will experience in Class:

  • Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development — Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.
  • Vocal play — Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. In Kindermusik Our Time, vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class.
  • Exploration Time — Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements.
  • Story time and early literacy — Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help toddlers learn to read a book also help them learn to read music.
  • Movement Activities — Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.
  • Together Time — Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing parents/carers to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.

Imagine That! | Ages 3 to 5 years

Class Length: 45 minute class each week

Class Size:  Class with no more than 10 children

Parent/Carer Involvement: Last 10-15 minutes of class

What a Parent/Carer and Child Will Experience in Class:

  • Pretend Play — Pretend play activities are integrated with music, vocal development, storytelling, listening, movement, and literacy aspects of each class. When based upon a child’s real life experiences, pretend play helps develop language, sensory, motor, and cognitive skills.
  • Musical Variety and Singing — Activities include a mixture of musical genres and styles and provide a setting for children to explore their many voices and to use a “singing voice.” Singing helps with memory and recall, physical development, creativity, and socialisation.
  • Storytelling and Literacy — Each class is built on the development of a story, so you’ll hear preschoolers search for the word to say what they mean and try to keep up with their busy minds, emerging wants, needs, likes, and dislikes.
  • Parent/Carer Involvement — Preschoolers are learning to be self-sufficient in a group setting of peers, while many times still needing the emotional security provided by a parent. The preschooler experiences both in Imagine That! Caregivers participate in the last 10-15 minutes of class.

Young Child | Ages  5 to 7 years

Class Length: 45-60 minute class each week

Class Size: 8 children maximum

What A Parent And Child Will Experience In Class:

  • Singing and vocal development — It may sound like a foreign language when a child sings “ta” and “ti-ti,” but this is the language of professional musicians and composers and getting young children ready to read and write simple rhythm patterns.
  • Movement — See children dance expressively to music, giving them the practice they need to coordinate their body movements to the sound of music. This kind of musical play not only improves musicianship, but physical coordination as well.
  • Reading and writing — Young children will learn melodic notation and identify pitches such as the C, A, and D notes on the treble clef, plus rhythmic notation. Eventually even composing their own music.
  • Focused listening — Children will learn to identify a range of orchestra instruments and their sound qualities, while also gaining an early awareness and knowledge of composers and masterworks.
  • Exploring and playing musical instruments — Authentic percussion, string, pre-keyboard, and woodwind instruments expose children to the many choices for future musical study, and at the same time provide them with the opportunity to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction.
