Benefits of Kindermusik
This is our favorite benefit of all. Each class is time chiseled out of your schedule to spend one-on-one with your child and building that beautiful relationship.
Early Literacy and Language Development
Active music-making and activities that emphasize steady beat, rhythm, and pitch increase phonological awareness due to similarities in brain functioning between music and language. Plus, stories, nursery rhymes, fingerplays, and songs increase vocabulary acquisition and support early language development.
Music classes for children cultivate sharing, turn-taking, active listening, cooperation, paying attention, and healthy social interaction with peers and adults. Kindermusik supports the key abilities needed for children to grow into socially confident and capable people.
Musical learning provides gains in abstract reasoning, spatial and temporal reasoning, and self-control.
Playing developmentally appropriate instruments and moving around the room to music provides children opportunities to practice both fine- and gross-motor skills each week in class and at home with you.
Kindermusik prepares children for traditional music lessons, including piano, violin, and voice. In class, children may experience steady beat during lap bounces or clapping games, play instruments together to support early ensemble development, learn to tap basic rhythm patterns, sing age-appropriate songs to support vocal development, or even learn to read and write music.
