WHAT IS KINDERMUSIK?
Kindermusik is a music and movement program with curriculum for children ages birth through seven years old.  More specifically, Kindermusik classes provide a holistic musical and learning experience in the critical first years of young children and their families.  This developmental program, guided by a proven methodology combining music and childhood development, provides opportunities to foster child-parent relationships and gain a lifelong love of music and learning.  It is taught by a trained and licensed Kindermusik educator.

KINDERMUSIK SAMPLER CLASSES
at 
THE CHILDREN'S MUSEUM in Edwardsville


In each "Laugh & Learn" Unit 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.

Classes are 45 minutes for ages 2-5 
Fees: TBA
Enrollment Process: TBA (via The Children's Museum)



 

Wednesday, April 15    9:30AM

Out & About is a trip into the world of imagination, and all you’ll need to pack is a sense of adventure! We’ll ride bikes, hike in the mountains, scuttle like crabs, and fly like seagulls. Singing, instrument play, creativity, and movement all bring the learning to life.

 


Wednesday, May 13    1:30PM

The sun is shining, birds are singing, insects are buzzing and critters are sniffing, wriggling, chirping, hopping, and burrowing. We’ll buzz like bees, fly like butterflies, and sing like birds to discover the hidden delights of our backyards through listening, singing, movement, and pretend play. Come along—it’s a beautiful day In My Garden

 

Wednesday, May 20    9:30AM

Put on your overalls and boots—it’s off to the barnyard for some farm-time fun! You’ll discover farm plants, farm animals, and farmyard songs, sounds, and games, as you have fun exploring all there is to do Around the Farm.

Kindermusik One-Time Activities

I offer Kindermusik activities for children’s groups and have met up with play groups, preschools, and libraries to have some great musical fun with their children. Having a one-time activity is a great way to get a sampling of the Kindermusik experience before committing to a semester of classes!

 Kindermusik Parent Talk and Sampler Class

I also offer educational talks to parent groups about music and childhood development as they relate to the benefits of the Kindermusik experience. I then follow-up with a sampler class for the whole family. Your school or church may want to consider scheduling Kindermusik for their next PTO meeting or special activity.
