The study, practice, and discipline of making music gives the brain a workout—it develops and expands neural pathways, forming stronger and more complex communication networks. Music education build’s listening and auditory processing skills; promote memory and recall; and strengthen executive function, the set of cognitive abilities that controls planning, organizing, goal formation, and more.
During our classes, your child is introduced to new concepts and topics that help them gain a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. They learn song lyrics and dance routines that test their memory and recall skills, practice focusing on and listening attentively to original stories and unique animal sounds, and learn about cause and effect through instrument and prop play. Our activities encourage problem solving, symbolic thinking, reasoning, and more—all in a musically engaging and developmentally appropriate way
Maybe it goes without saying, but our Kindermusik classes drive children’s musical development. Our activities are designed to develop vocal skills, foster music appreciation, and build a foundation for formal music instruction later on. In class, your child will learn to play all kinds of age-appropriate instruments and to appreciate music of varying styles and origin. They learn to recognize and decode musical symbols, and they’re introduced to musical concepts and terms as they play and move presto, largo, allegro, staccato, and legato to a variety of rhythms.
