Developing A Child’s Natural Musicianship
For toddlers, every day brings new discoveries and opportunities to explore the world. Despite their growing independence, however, one- to three-year-olds still long for safety and security; they relish the comfort of the familiar while seeking the challenge of something new.
Kindermusik toddler classes encourage your child to be creative, to initiate her own ideas, and to respond in her own ways, while your presence and participation offer needed reassurance and support. You and your child will play and explore instruments together. You will sing and move to the music. And you’ll hear and act out simple stories and rhymes. Activities such as these will delight and engage your child, and at the same time build her self-confidence, self-control, and communication skills. Your Kindermusik teacher will help you understand what and how your toddler is learning and developing with each activity, and will share tips for weaving music into your daily routines at home.
