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 BIRTHDAY PARTIES!!

Kindermusik Birthday Party Activity is great musical fun that your child will LOVE and you don’t have to plan! It’s approximately 30 minutes of a “mini-Kindermusik” class (i.e. music & movement with samplings of class activities) specially designed to be age-appropriate to your child. The party activity includes such fun as singing, moving, listening, dancing, circle songs, story time (a birthday book!), playing instruments, parachute play, etc. All music, instruments, props, etc used are provided for the activity.

Fees: $50 for up to six children ($7 per each additional child)  Deposit ($40) due to secure your date/time w/ balance due day of the party   (There may be a time/travel fee for parties booked outside the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area.)   Please Note:  I do not schedule parties on Sunday.

* Kindermusik Birthday Parties available at Happy Up Inc. (formerly Once Upon A Toy Store) too!   Contact the store for details.
  

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.
