FALL CLASSES (see calendar at bottom of page)
Weeks 1 – 8: Feathers—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. Engage in rituals and playful activities such as infant massage, lap bounces, exercise, and quiet time, along with instrument exploration, dancing, and flying through colorful scarves. Flying high and swooping low, we enjoy imagining feathered friends as your baby discovers that high and low are about both sound and movement. Our bird friends also accompany us as we explore steady beat in music, dance, and poetry. Our feathery, flying journey is an opportunity to explore the long, smooth swooping sounds of flight and the short, sharp sounds of birds hopping and pecking. We also move and groove to the syncopated rhythms of jazz and discover the delights of moving fast and slow.
Weeks 9 – 15: Do-Si-Do — Pick up your baby and dance. Dance the Charleston, the Tango, and the Cha-Cha and learn why dancing with your baby helps develop vital learning skills—from head-to-toe. In this class, play a variety of baby appropriate instruments, and dance with fun props. Inspired by the Do-Si-Do storybook, we explore how steady beat and rhythm fosters your baby’s developing mind. A variety of classical and folk music opens the door to an engaging world of dance and movement for you and your baby. It’s all about dance! We discover the tango, cha-cha, waltz, and others as we nurture our babies’ exploration through their ever-widening sense of the world.
SPRING CLASSES (see calendar at bottom of page)
Weeks 1 – 8: Cock-a-Doodle-Moo! — Hop on the hayride—it’s time to head for the farm! In this class, you will sing songs about the farm, including “Old MacDonald,” “Hayride,” and “Clever Cows.” You’ll engage in rituals and playful activities with your baby, including infant massage, lap bounces, exercise, and quiet time. We swoop up and we glide down; we stop and we go. Singing and moving to some childhood favorites as well as enjoying some new songs, we encourage and enjoy our little sunshines’ learning and development. We’re goin’ on a hayride visiting all kinds of places and animals on the farm. We listen for unique animals sounds, instrument sounds, and the sparkle and wonder of our children’s voices as they explore making their own of music.
Weeks 9 – 15: Dewdrops – Stop and smell the roses—and lily of the valley, and tulips, and pansies. In this class, parents and babies will play and move together to songs about flowers, such as “Jasmine Flower,” “How Does Your Garden Grow?,” and “White Coral Bells.” You’ll also hear traditional Irish music, dance a jig and move to the “Irish Trot.” Dancing and singing to the songs of Ireland and England, we move and sing to teach our babies about high and low in pitch and movement. Hand-in-hand, we continue our travels through far off lands discovering steady beat – the underlying, regular pulse in music. Follow-the-leader, partner dance, playing with instruments, and hide-and-go-seek all the way to Galway! We find all kinds of ways to experience duration (long and short), and tempo (slow and fast). When these babies are in Imagine That classes in a few years, these words become the musical terms of legato and staccato, lento and allegro.
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!
