Why Does Age or Developmental Level Matter in Music Classes?

From vocal range to instrument safety to attention span, every age is different. That’s why each Kindermusik class is designed to help children truly enjoy the activities and meet appropriate developmental milestones. All Kindermusik classes are pressure free so that each child can learn at their own pace.

Foundation Level 1

(0 – 18 months) Offered year-round.

Did you know sound recognition begins in the womb? Foundation classes are all about exploring and reacting to new sounds, objects, and movements. Plus, parents and caregivers heighten connections with their babies by learning bonding techniques. Give your little one extra confidence to move, groove, and speak!

Level 1 classes allow young toddlers to explore new movements, objects, and words, while learning basic music concepts. Families also discover how to create better daily routines with music.

Level 2

(18 months – 3 years) Offered year-round.

Toddlers have tons of energy and curiosity. Level 2 classes are all about exploring creativity and enhancing cognitive development through singing, dancing, and instrument play, while grownups learn how to help unpack big emotions with music.

Level 3

(3-5 years) Offered year-round.

Did you know that preschoolers have a natural love of music? Level 3 classes use music to boost language skills, confidence, social-emotional skills, self-control, and more. Parents and caregivers join a portion of each class to participate in music-making.

Parent Comments

We love kindermusik!!! I first started taking my now 14 month old at 9 months and she loves every second of it. Giselle is such a wonderful teacher and connects so well with the kids. My daughter has so much fun every week and also learns so much. I can really see how this has helped with her social skills and basic development. I couldn’t be happier with the kindermusik program and recommend it to anyone who wants to do something fun with their baby/toddler.

I’ve had all three of my children in the Kindermusik program with Ms. Giselle.  It is a terrific music program for little ones, and Ms. Giselle is absolutely wonderful!  She actively engages the kids and makes it so much fun for them!

I wanted to tell you what a great experience we had with our daughter, Nora, in Miss Ivy’s Kindermusik class. Nora truly had a blast each week, and learned a lot from the class. On the last day of class, she finally helped put things away in the basket (at the start of class, she used to take items out…lol). Ivy is such a sweet and enthusiastic teacher; she has a real way with the kids. Each class had something different to offer but also reinforced the themes Ivy was teaching, like patience or helping. We loved coming to class each week. 
 
Just wanted to pass along my thanks for this program and my praise of Ivy! We’ll be back in the winter.
 
Happy Holidays!

I can’t say enough great things about the Kindermusik program!  I have 4 kids that have all participated in the program at various ages. They’ve all loved it and I love watching them grow. It’s a great activity for any personality. My shy kids open up, my outgoing ones actually sit and take it all in, and they all STILL listen to the CDs and read the books!  The programs and the instructors have been amazing and I am forever grateful I found this program!  Wouldn’t change it for the world!  Hands down a must for kids of all ages!

A great music related class for your kiddos! The teacher, Giselle, has such a wonderful passion and a natural way of connecting with children. A fun, brain-developing way to help your kiddos to come out of their shells! My daughter and I love it!
