Music Classes for Big Kids: Ages 4-7

Girl In Classroom

Establishing a Lifelong Love of Music

Kindermusik classes for four- to seven-year-olds offer children exciting first experiences with musical symbols and more complex instruments, laying the groundwork for formal music instruction. In class, your child will investigate a wide variety of musical concepts, such as notation; learn the basics of vocal development; play simple instruments; and explore music, games, and stories from other cultures. And as your child grows musically, she will be developing strong social-emotional, problem-solving, and pre-literacy skills that build school readiness and provide the perfect foundation for academic and social success later on.

Move & Groove | Ages 4-6

Move & Groove classes engage your growing child in music-and-movement activities that also promote language, social-emotional skills, early math and literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. In each 45-minute class, your child will learn basic music vocabulary and notation, and will be introduced to influential composers and their work. You’ll join the fun for the final activities to watch firsthand as your child begins to master musical terms and concepts, building a solid foundation for formal music instruction. Move & Groove classes offer monthly enrollment and a year’s worth of exciting 4-week sessions, each with its own child-friendly theme.
