Kindermusik Village
(newborns – 18 months with adult)
1 units cover 7 weeks / 45 minutes


Meet other newborns and families in the community and learn how music improves the child development process. In “Feathers” we use the musical poems of Woody Guthrie, bird songs, and the naturally occurring sounds in nature to help babies develop an early appreciation—and accelerated aptitude—for language, movement, and music.

In “Do-Si-Do” we dance! Pick up your baby or hold hands and move! Dance the Charleston, the Tango, and the Cha-Cha and learn why dancing with your baby helps develop vital learning skills—from head-to-toe. Play a variety of baby appropriate instruments, and dance with fun props.

Tuition $185

$70 Materials Fee Includes:
2 Home CD's, 2 Literature Book's and 4 Art Banners and 2 Instrument

Kindermusik "Our Time"
(18 months-3 1/2 years)
14 weeks / 35 minutes


First, we’re on the sea in boats and under the sea pretending to be fish! We’re splishing and splashing to help us explore steady beat - the underlying, regular pulse in music. Friendly water activities will bring the learning home from hand washing to bath time, and Kindermusik lasts all week long.

In the meadow, we’re moving fast - we’re moving slow! We explore tempo with our friends frog and

squirrel down in the meadow, hopping, singing, dancing, and playing. When we ride here and there, we say, “Whoa Horsey!” We are riding all around the countryside with lap bounces, instrument play along, dances and quiet snuggles. Join us as we explore tempos and patterns in music and everywhere!

Tuition $180

Two Home CD's, Two Literature Books, Home Activity Book, Zig Zag Blocks and Carrying Case

Imagine That!
3 1/2-5 years
14 weeks / 45 minutes


In this class, children use their real experience of playing in the park to create imaginative, storytelling scenarios with music—go on an imaginary trip to Grasshopper Park where they sail down the park slide and then recreate the sound of that experience with a loooong vocal glissando. Each week provides one uninterrupted session of imaginative play that's guided in a very specific, sequential way—with a special sharing time with adults in the last ten minutes of class.

Tuition $185

$70 Materials fee includes:
Two Home CD's, Two Literature Books, Family Activity Book, Play Set, a slide whistle and lummi sticks and Child-sized Back Pack.

Young Child 1

Everything your child learns later in semesters 2, 3, and 4 begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm. Through dances and games that focus on rhythmic development, we'll learn a keyboard instrument—the glockenspiel—which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes. Your At Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you'll hear about from class, so your child—and you!—can learn where you're most comfortable at home.

14 weeks / 60 minutes

Tuition $210

$75 Materials fee includes:
Home CD, Family Songbook, Binder Games Bag, Folder & Stickers,

Young Child 2

Appalachian music is a featured musical style this semester. First, you and your child will build a two-stringed dulcimer instrument with materials that we'll provide. Then in class we'll learn to play chords and simple melodies on the instrument you built together. We'll also explore rhythm concepts through dance with an introduction to the basic steps in jazz, ballet, and tap dances. Your Home Materials include dulcimer-making materials, activity cards, and music that features recordings from Appalachia, African-America, and Native American music, as well as the Western Art music of the Nutcracker Suite.
