Kindermusik for the Young Child
5 years and 7 months to 6 1/2 years
Listen as your child astonishes you with her newfound ability to create musical compositions. Kindermusik for the Young Child provides a pressure-free, developmentally appropriate transition to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction. Kindermusik provides the opportunity to explore voice development, rhythm, notation, musical symbols and authentic pre-keyboard, string and woodwind instruments.
Young Child helps every child develop a confident, joyful voice for singing and speaking as well as essential building blocks for a future of learning. Designed for children ages 4½ through 7 years, classes meet once a week for 70 minutes. Students explore many facets of the musical experience-speaking, singing, moving, dancing, listening, creating and playing instruments, as well as learning about reading and writing music. As the capstone to the child's Kindermusik journey, Young Child broadens and deepens the child's introduction to the fulfillment and excitement of musicianship. Classes are 70 minutes in total length with adults (sibling welcome) joining in for the last 10-15 minutes.
Year One (Semester 1/2) is for children 4 1/2 through 5. You may join at anytime.
Year Two (Semester 3/4) is for children 5 1/2 and up. It is possible to start with Year Two without taking Year One. We do not take new students after October 15 for this level. The 30 class session includes the end of the year Fiesta!
