No. of Classes :   8-week semester

In a Kindermusik Village class, we take those special bonding moments between you and your baby and add in a unique blend of musical learning activities that stimulate and engage all of the senses. We will teach you how to encourage your baby’s learning through vocal play, object exploration, instruments, and creative movement.


What you’ll experience in class:

  • Variety of music. Musical diversity builds strong neural networks 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 enhances 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 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. We explain “what-to-watch-for” every step of the way and how each activity enhances your child’s complete development.
  • Learning continues at home. With the home materials, the learning continues at home with your child’s best teacher—you!

 


Enrollment includes:

  • Developmentally appropriate curriculum for parents and babies, ages newborn to 18 months
  • 8-week with different themes
  • Weekly 45-minute class that includes new and unique parent and baby activities
  • At Home Materials—one for each mini-theme—each including a CD of music from class, literature board book, age-appropriate instrument, and art banner
  • You’ll learn over 30 songs, lullabies, and nursery rhymes and play over 100 activities together by the semester’s end.

FEATHERS HCDFeathers

Feathers introduces you and your baby to a delightful range of songs, movement activities, object play, and vocal play relating to our feathered friends. The Australian Kookaburra, the African Ostrich, and many more birds from across the world are featured in songs, dances, and poems. Jazz and classical selections, a Yiddish folk song, a Muskogean melody, and Mother Goose rhymes set to music are just a few of the colorful and exciting pieces introduced in this curriculum. The musical poems of Woody Guthrie, bird songs, and the naturally occurring sounds in nature help babies develop an early appreciation—and accelerated aptitude—for language, movement, and music in this class.
