(Find descriptions of these different programs at the bottom of the page)

 

We have unique learning experiences in these programs that can be adapted for any age. So whether your baby is a just a few weeks old, a few months or 2 years of age, they’ll love the together time with their parent, grandparent, or caregiver.

Music is one of your baby’s favourite things – AND it’s one of the best things for your baby’s developing mind. Babies’ brains are filled with billions of neurons just waiting to be connected through sensory stimulation. That’s what we do when we’re in Kindermusik:  we offer a sensory rich environment, complete with music, movement and fun, to create and strengthen baby’s neural pathways. Each Kindermusik Village® class touches on every learning domain, creates special bonding moments, and begins to instill a lifelong love of music.

Bond and play together as you open the window to early music learning.

In Kindermusik Village® program, we start with that special connection between you and your baby, add in our unique blend of musical learning activities, and top it all off with the joy of shared experiences with the other adults and children in your class. All along the way, your International licensed
Kindermusik™
educator will share tips and ideas that will give your baby the best kind of musical head start and will help make your everyday routines a little bit easier and a whole lot more musical. Whether it’s dancing with your child around a maypole, cuddling together for Quiet Time, or exploring a gathering drum with the friends you’ve made in class,
Kindermusik Village
®
will be an experience like no other!

What you’ll experience in the Kindermusik™ Program for babies, Village
®

  • Instrument play. Age-appropriate experiences with child-safe instruments enhance a sense of rhythm and steady beat, develop a keen awareness of the distinguishing qualities of sound, and encourage 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.
  • Exploration Time.  Your child’s natural curiosity will be stimulated in our infant music classes, in  an inviting environment of discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, movements, interesting objects, and baby-safe props.
  • Musical concepts.  Even the littlest musicians and their parents benefit from early exposure to basic musical fundamentals like loud and quiet, musical form, tempo, timbre, steady beat, and more!
  • Together time. A Kindermusik class is truly the essence of “quality time,” offering you a place to create special memories with your child, gain new insights into your child’s development, and nurture your child’s natural love of music.
  • Expert advice. Consider these baby development classes, as Kindermusik educators explain “what-to-watch-for” every step of the way and how each activity enhances your child’s complete development.
  • Tools and inspiration for home. With your Kindermusik™ Home Materials, the learning continues all week long with your child’s best teacher—you!

Young children (newborn to 18 months) are primarily in a receptive mode of learning. With you there to nurture and engage your child, a Kindermusik baby’s music class gives your little one the perfect head start, musically and developmentally.

Language Development – You’ll hear lots of sweet coo’s and goo’s before your baby’s first words, and Kindermusik activities will help you develop your baby’s language skills through vocalization in response to music, hearing his name in songs, and exploring sounds with his own voice.

Vocal Development – Being immersed in a bath of musical sound becomes the precursor to actual singing.  Vocal play activities inspire your little one to begin to coo, babble, and hum – the beginning stages of learning to use the voice.

Cognitive Development – Little minds present a big window of opportunity, a window that’s actually only open for so long.  Simple musical play activities increase your baby’s brain development by locating sounds though instrument and object play and feeling a steady beat.

Gross Motor Skills – One thing will naturally lead to the next as you expand your baby’s movement repertoire through activities that support rolling, crawling, and kicking during music, as well as sitting and standing independently, and later learning to walk, march, and dance.
 

Fine Motor Skills – From discovering her hands to learning what her hands can do, your baby will thrive on playful activities with you that give her practice in visually tracking objects and teach her how to reach, grasp, and release those objects as well as to transfer them from hand-to-hand.

Social Emotional Development – At a time when your child is becoming attached to you and just beginning to make her first connections with other people, Kindermusik™ helps you strengthen the precious bond with your child through cuddling, playing, humming, and dancing and also heighten the benefits of social interaction with     others through side-by-side play and group dances.

Musical Development – Whether you are bouncing your child to the steady beat or she is doing a fledgling “bouncy” dance on her own, your baby is primed and ready to benefit from an early introduction to music through exploring instruments, listening to sounds, and moving to music.
