kindermusik Classes

Since 2003 I’ve been licensed to lead Kindermusik Music and Movement Classes, which are offered by educators all over the world. Each lesson includes rhythm instruments, singing, chanting, and moving to music, with each activity designed to enhance every area of children’s development. Parents and children form deeper bonds while learning to appreciate music from various genres and cultures. In addition to that, my weekday classes take place at local retirement residences where seniors have the opportunity to participate too!

Contact me to register, arrange a free trial class, or to have questions answered.

Skip to an age group:

Birth To 18 Months

5- 8 classes per theme, 45maximum 12 babies per class with up to 2 adults each. *NOTE: siblings over 18 months may attend at no charge! Babies 6 months or older may also attend Family Time classes.

Cock-a-doodle-Moo (8 classes) January to March (Thursdays or Fridays)

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.

Home Materials: A picture board book with charming farm animals and the sounds they make—Cock-a-doodle-Moo, a CD of the songs heard in class, a cage bell instrument for music-making at home, and a set of Art Banners for the nursery wall.

**If you miss the opportunity to register for this class, another theme will be offered following it. Get in touch if you’d like to try out a class before committing.

 

18 Months to 3 Years

4 - 12 classes per theme, 45 minutes each, maximum 12 children per class with up to 2 adults each.

Children this age may also attend Family Time classes. Scroll down for details.

On the Go, then Home Sweet Home (8 classes) January to March (Thurs., Fri. or Sat.)

This course combines two mini-themes, each with their own home materials kit (with your choice of physical or digital):

On the Go!: Children always seem to be on the go, which makes this unit just their speed! You’ll use locomotor skills and active imaginations to drive in cars, chug along in trains, and bounce on pogo sticks. You’ll bumpity-bump, zippity-zoom, and stop-and-go-and-stop-and-go, because it’s non-stop learning when you’re On the Go!

Home Sweet Home: Up and at ‘em, there’s work up to be done all around this great big house (or den, or nest, or burrow)! Turn everyday tasks around your Home Sweet Home—like painting, hammering, cooking and cleaning up—into musical teamwork fun.

**If you miss registration for this class, you’re still welcome to attend a free trial class. Please contact me to reserve your space. The next opportunity to register will be after March Break.
