FALL CLASSES (see calendar at bottom of page)
Weeks 1 – 8: Zoom Buggy — Swoosh, vroom, and clickety-clack your way through this delightful unit. Babies and adults will dance, sing, and play instruments to the theme of being on the go. Chug around the room to the song “Little Red Caboose,” hold on tightly while “Riding in the Buggy,” and dance your way to “Zoom-e-oh!” Engage in rituals and playful activities such as infant massage, lap bounces, exercise, and quiet time. Chug along in a train, glide on a rocking horse, zoom in a fire engine, and bump along in a stroller to help your baby experience fast and slow movement and music. Through playful songs and activities, your baby will find delight in stopping suddenly and the anticipation of starting up again. Introduce your baby to the music of many cultures from Russia, to Indonesia, to Israel and more. Dances, lap bounces, and instrument play focus on the long and short sounds of music as well as the thrill of riding in a rocket ship and a canoe.
Weeks 9 – 15: Dream Pillow — This title alone brings images of rocking, cuddling, singing, and lulling to sleep. But leading up to sleepy time are many upbeat and playful activities. Babies and Adults will swirl to a dreamy cloud dance “Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland.” They’ll also play baby appropriate instruments to “Aiken Drum,” and “Sarasponda.” Favorite nursery rhymes like “Wee Willie Winkie,” and “Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling,” are sprinkled throughout the classes. It’s easy to weave many of the class songs and activities into your families’ daily routines. Dance, play instruments, manipulate humongous scarves, and rock with your baby to discover the delightful contrast between sound and silence. Familiar tunes and rhymes, as well as some new songs, will help your baby discover his or her very own musical instrument – the voice. Join in a musical ensemble of singing, movement, and instrument play as we sing, speak and dance to favorite nursery rhymes and other songs, from the lively to the dreamy. Our ensemble will range from one part (unison) to several parts (harmony), all sure to open your baby’s eyes, ears, and mind to the many contrasts and moods of music.
SPRING CLASSES (see calendar at bottom of page)
Weeks 1 – 8: Hickory, Dickory, Tickle, and Bounce — Research shows the more you expose your baby to nursery rhymes and songs, the stronger those emerging language-learning skills will be. That’s why these Mother Goose-like stories and rhymes are the main theme of this class. Plus, you’ll develop research-proven communication strategies with your child through listening activities, speaking “parentese,” and sign language.
Weeks 9 – 15: The Rhythm of my Day – his class will help you bring more rhythm and routine to your baby’s day, as well as help develop lasting learning skills. We’ll show you how and tell you why music can help your little one soothe into the day’s schedule and help build a strong body and mind network for learning. You can bring home those same stress-free play and relaxation techniques from class, and incorporate them into your daily routines.
What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class:
Variety of Music — Musical diversity builds strong neural 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.
Expert Advice — A Kindermusik Educator explains “what-to-watch-for” every step of the way and how each activity enhances a child’s complete development.
Learning Continues at Home — With the home materials, the learning continues at home with the child’s best teacher—the parent!
