“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

KINDERMUSIK Foundations

Newborn to 14 months (approx.), with parent or caregiver

COVID-19: due to physical distancing requirements and in-door singing restrictions, Kindermusik classes will be conducted by live-stream. Fees have been reduced to reflect the less social aspect of virtual classes, and because families need to provide their own props and musical instruments.

Thursdays at 11:15 am – October 15 to Dec. 3 – two themes

Cuddle, bounce, and bop with your baby in Kindermusik’s newest curriculum. Whether your baby is five weeks or five months, this class will be perfect for you! Each activity is adaptable for lap babies, crawlers and new walkers. Our licensed educator, Lynn, will guide you in real time over Zoom as you engage your baby through instrument play-alongs, singing, chanting, dance, object exploration and relaxation time.  Along the way you’ll get expert advice based on the most recent research in baby development.

Continue the Kindermusik experience between lessons with your choice of the digital home kit (story, recorded music, suggested home activities and parenting tips) or the physical version (board book, CD and age-appropriate instrument or prop) for each theme.

Themes change each semester and repeat every 12 months.

Foundations Themes

  • Music Makes My Day

    Music Makes My Day: If you think about it, your day-to-day routine is a lot like a piece of music. Ups, downs, repetitions, patterns, fast parts, slow parts, and lots (and lots) of improvising! Music Makes My Day focuses on daily rituals and parts of the day, and gets you thinking about anticipation, improvisation, singing, instruments, new rituals, and other ways to make your same-old routine fun and musical.

  • Peas & Carrots

    Yum, yum, yum. Are you hungry? In Peas & Carrots, you’ll have fun moving, singing, and playing as you explore snacks, meals, cooking, and mm, mm, eating!

Level 2 Themes

  • How Do You Feel?

    How Do You Feel? Everyone has feelings, and children are no exception. A young child can go from happy to sad and back again in the blink of an eye. Navigating their changing emotions can be complicated for children, but the music, dances, and activities in How Do You Feel? provide a fun way for them to explore and identify different feelings, learn how to express and manage their emotions, and understand themselves better. What better way to develop these important social-emotional skills?

Colors & Shapes on the Farm is loaded with songs, dances, instrument play-alongs, as well as listening activities that provde lots of play and lots of learning. So come on down to the farm!

Saturdays at 10:45 am – Sept. 19 to Dec. 12 (no class Thanksgiving weekend)

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 are included in the hello song and the final activities of each lesson. Kindermusik home kits (digital or physical) give you ready access to the music, suggested activities, and story for each theme. The repetition enhances the learning—and the fun!

Themes change each semester and repeat every two years.

Level 3 Themes

  • Sounds Abound

    In a world without instruments, could you still make music? Of course you could! Music was born from creativity—people using their voices, bodies, and objects they found, assembled, or invented to make new sounds. Join us as we explore rhythm patterns, creative sound-finding and sound-making, graphic notation, and storytelling—because the creative brain is where Sounds Abound!

  • Jumping Beans

    Jump into the rhythms of Latin America with Jumping Beans! Peek into the rain forest, explore expressive movement, investigate quarter notes and quarter rests, sing and learn some words and phrases in Spanish, and—you guessed it—jump, jump, jump!

  • Dance With Me

    Put on your dancing shoes, it’s time to twirl, tap, leap, bow, and turn! Music makes people move in many different ways—and we get to find our own way, too.  You’ll learn dance steps, move expressively, explore instruments, and learn to play together in an ensemble. Come on in and Dance With Me!
