  • Recommendation for Young Children

    To lay the most solid foundation for future musical study, it is strongly suggested that your child participate fully in Kindermusik through age 6 or 7 to develop the fine and gross motor skills, aural discernment, pitch recognition, visual tracking and reading ability, creative interpretation of style, and discipline required for instrumental study. Kindermusik for the Young Child, the jewel in the crown of Kindermusik, is highly recommended for a young child before embarking on any instrumental journey. In a social setting, the students learn to sing on pitch, reproduce rhythmic patterns with their whole body, read music, work together, play in an ensemble, and compose, while also being purposefully exposed to a variety of styles of music. In the first year, children learn to play the glockenspiel, a keyed instrument, and in the second year they learn the 4-string dulcimer, a stringed instrument, and the recorder, a wind instrument. At the completion of this course, your child will be much better equipped to choose the instrument they would like to study and have a better understanding of what instrumental study involves.

    Kindermusik for the Young Child is a weekly, 1-hour class, and will be available Fall 2018. Please see the Kindermusik page for music & movement classes for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and KPrep-K.
