FAQ:
What class should I enroll in if my baby is just about 12 months but isn’t walking yet?
Kindermusik classes are arranged more by developmental stage, not numerical age. If your baby isn’t walking yet, enroll in Kindermusik Foundations. As soon as the walking milestone happens, you’ll be invited to “walk on up” (or graduate) to the Level 1 class. The idea is for Level 1 to be all walkers and Foundations to be all non-walkers.


Kindermusik Level 2 – School Year

Age Range: 2 years – 3 1/2 years old
Class Length: 45 minute class with caregiver
Class Schedule: Held once a week with scheduled breaks (see calendar at bottom of page)

level 2
Kindermusik Level 2 is designed for children 2 years to 3.5 years of age, along with an accompanying parent or caregiver. Children and caregivers meet weekly for a 45-minute class. Level 2 classes encourage older toddlers to initiate their own ideas, nurturing social-emotional growth and cognitive development in a playful, exploratory environment. Playing instruments, singing, moving, and exploring uncover an engaging musical world while building the toddlers’ confidence, self-control, and communications skills. For the toddler, every day brings new discoveries and opportunities to explore the world.  Despite a display of independence, the toddler child still longs for the safety and security of parental closeness. During this time, toddlers still relish the comfort of the familiar while also seeking the challenge of something new.

Kindermusik Level 2 encourages children to be creative, to initiate their own ideas and to respond in their own ways, while the caregiver’s active participation gives the toddlers the security they need.

child with rhythm sticksWhat a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class:

Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development 
— Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.
Vocal play — Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. In Kindermusik Level 2, vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class.
Exploration Time — Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements.
Story time and early literacy — Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help toddlers learn to read a book also help them learn to read music.
Movement Activities — Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.
Together Time — Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing caregivers to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.
Expert advice — A Kindermusik educator explains how the musically based activities enhance a toddler’s complete development.

With older children ready to show the little one’s how it’s done and the younger ones eager to learn, Mixed Age Class becomes a multi-layered learning environment.
children playing with scarvesEach week, a Kindermusik Educator will introduce basic musical concepts and then give you the instruments, fun props, and the structured free time to put those concepts into play. Our mixed-age classes are perfect for families with children of any age between newborn and 7. These classes allow infants through seven-year-olds—and their caregivers—to gather together for a fun-filled learning experience. Your Kindermusik educators will help you modify movement activities, group dances, and instrument-play activities so all children can enjoy at their developmental stage.

A wide range of learning opportunities boosts language skills, confidence, independence, social-emotional skills, and self-control. Classes are interactive and encourage children to participate together.  Children will experience a variety of sounds and learn how sounds are produced by playing musical instruments, speaking or singing. Class will have an emphasis on steady beat, repeated rhythm patterns, graphic notation, and ensemble music as well as encouraging creative expression and language play, expressing feelings and ideas through movement and music. Musical skills include pre-reading music and learning to interpret graphic notation symbols, a precursor to learning traditional music symbols.
