“As a child care provider for over 3 decades, I understand the need for high quality, children’s learning programs. The children at my daycare have enjoyed Kindermusik with Lynn Thompson for years.

Lynn allows children to learn at their own pace in a fun and interactive program. She has customized her programs to suit the needs of our autistic students, incorporating sign language that allows the children the freedom to explore music in their own way.

Her Kindermusik programs are beneficial to growth and development. Both parents and children love her, and thats why we continue to come back year after year.”

— Gail, Child Care Provider, Barrie

Foundations Themes

  • Bluebird, Bluebird

    Bluebird, Bluebird: Chirp! Tweet! Quack! Bluebird, Bluebird is a sound-rich flight (of fancy) into the sky, where you’ll explore birds, feathers, and the outdoors.

  • Nature Walk

    Nature Walk: Let’s explore the wonders and sensations of the outdoors!  We’ll use our eyes to look all around, and our ears to listen to all of the sounds we hear.  Plus, we’ll touch, and smell, and move, and play! There’s no feast for the senses quite like a Nature Walk.

Level 2 Themes

  • Up in the Sky

    Up in the Sky: Up, up , and away! In this unit, we’ll explore all the things that find their home in the sky through songs, instruments, vocal play, and listening activities. Get ready to fly kites, meet Mister Robin, pretend to be clouds, and reach for the stars. There’s so much fun and learning Up in the Sky!

  • Down on the Ground

    Down on the Ground: Look down and get grounded! In this unit, we explore the world of creatures found at our feet. We’ll engage a child’s natural curiosity as we hop like bunnies, crawl like caterpillars, and move high and low like squirrels. We’ll hear and imitate crickets chirping and dogs barking, perform a familiar spider fingerplay, and have fun with nonsense words, too. Through songs, listening activities, and vocal and instrument play, we’ll deepen the sense of wonder that children have about the world. With all the great music and learning, there’s no end to the fun Down on the Ground!

KINDERMUSIK Level 2

14 Months to 4 Years *With parent or caregiver

10:00 Am Thursdays – (2 themes) July 9 to 30 & Aug. 6 to 27

NOTE: for your safety and convenience, class participants will meet by Zoom video conferencing.

This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and her new friends and you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with the Kindermusik Home digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and each month’s story.

KINDERMUSIK Level 3

3 & 4 Years *Parents in at beginning and end

No class is currently available for this age group. Consider level 2 or private lessons instead.

Each week in class we combine your preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. We also connect you with other parents who share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler. Parents join class for the final activities. The Kindermusik home materials bring the music, activities, and each month’s story everywhere you go. The repetition enhances the learning—and the fun!

Themes change each semester.

Level 3 Themes

  • Home Sweet Home

    Get ready to spruce up the house in this home-themed unit. We’ll turn tasks such as cooking, cleaning, sawing, painting, and hammering into fun, pretend-play activities that make us move more creatively and use our imaginations. At the same time, we’ll explore the relationship between sounds and symbols, and build community as we sing and play together. Whether it’s a great big house (or a den, nest, or burrow!), there’s no place like Home Sweet Home!
