Class Descriptions for Winter/Spring 2017:
Village: Infants up to 18 months
Kindermusik Village classes provide a special place where you can connect with your baby and other families through music and movement. Each week you’ll dance with your baby, share songs, lullabies and nursery rhymes. Joyful musical play stimulates your baby’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development and engages her senses. Hickroy Dickory Tickle & Bounce feeds baby’s language development through the rhythmic nature of nursery rhymes and songs while The Rhythm of My Day helps parents incorporate music into many of the routines throughout baby’s daily life.
Home Materials: 2 home CDs, 2 board books, 2 art banners, 2 age appropriate instruments

Our Time: 18th months to 3 years
Fiddle-dee-dee takes its name from the beloved folk song about the fly who married the bumblebee. Creatures from the animal kingdom, whether furry, web-footed, winged or whiskered are explored in this unit. This joyful, fun-filled class promotes interaction between parent and child while focusing on the toddler’s need for security balanced with his need for independence. Singing, dancing, story time and instrument play are a part of each class.
Home Materials: 2 CDs, 2 story books, home activity book, fiddlesticks and Rover dog house carry box
Caregiver attends with child.
Imagine That!: 3 to 5 years
In this unit, sidewalks, elevators, skyscrapers, and worldtraveling photographers are the theme. Learning through the pretend play that preschoolers adore, we’ll be rhythmically busy playing storytelling games and handcrafting city “buildings” at home so we can make a cityscape in class! Your preschooler will embark on a musical journey of discovery and exploration limited only by the power of imagination.
Home Materials: 2 CDs, 2 literature books, game board set, family activity book and resonator bars and mallets (backpack for children new to this age group)

Young Child 1, 2, 3 & 4: 5-7 years
The Young Child program is the capstone of the Kindermusik program. It is a 4 semester (2 year) program. Young Child students learn to read notes from the treble clef staff, read rhythms, learn musical terms and learn to play 3 instruments During the fall and spring semester of the first year, the children learn to play songs on the glockenspiel (a barred instrument). In the fall of the second year, the dulcimer (a string instrument) is added then in the final semester, the recorder (a wind instrument) is added. When children complete the program, they are prepared for success in private music instruction. Young Child 1 and 3 are only offered in the Fall semester. Young Child 2 & 4 are only offered in the Winter/Spring semester.
