Establishing a Lifelong Love of Music
Kindermusik classes for five 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.
For 5 – 7 year olds
Watch your child’s confidence soar as we encourage their creativity in a warm and supportive musical environment. Not only will your child’s musical passion be ignited, but they’ll learn the foundation of music that will help them in their future pursuit of musical training AND in their future academic success. We meet your child where they are at and with a little guidance and a bit of practice help them to flourish in social situations. We want to help you raise your child to be a critical thinker, an uninhibited creator, a self aware and self confident individual!
Kindermusik for the Young Child is the perfect place for your budding musician to develop a strong musical foundation by learning the concepts, language, notation, and vocabulary of music, as well as the history and works of its greatest composers. Over the course of our 30 week session, your child will explore rhythm and musical symbols, engage in activities that focus on singing and vocal development, and practice playing instruments like the glockenspiel, dulcimer, and recorder. Classes are 60 minutes in length, and parents are invited to participate in the final activities. Kindermusik home materials allow your family to continue the learning and fun at home with books, CDs, instruments, and more.
What A Parent And Child Will Experience In Class…
Singing and vocal development — It may sound like a foreign language when a child sings “ta” and “ti-ti,” but this is the language of professional musicians and composers and getting young children ready to read and write simple rhythm patterns.
Movement — See children dance expressively to music, giving them the practice they needs to coordinate their body movements to the sound of music. This kind of musical play not only improves musicianship, but physical coordination as well.
Reading and writing — Young children will learn melodic notation and identify pitches such as the C, A, and D notes on the treble clef, plus rhythmic notation. Eventually even composing their own music.
Focused listening — Children will learn to identify a range of orchestra instruments and their sound qualities, while also gaining an early awareness and knowledge of composers and masterworks in Western arts tradition.
Exploring and playing musical instruments — Authentic percussion, string, pre-keyboard, and woodwind instruments expose children to the many choices for future musical study, and and at the same time provide them with the opportunity to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction.

What parents are saying about our program…
My daughter absolutely LOVES attending Kindermusik By Kaelie. She looks for things around the house that she can use to make music or relate to the topic/theme of the class. Since attending Kindermusik Amelia has become aware of all the different types of music…her favorite it Scat! She refers to quarter rest, quarter notes (walking notes) and eight notes (running notes) on a regular basis! Amelia now writes her own patterns with the notes/rests and than claps them out herself!! She is very excited to be moving onto the next level of Kindermusik By Kaelie.
Kaelie is one of the nicest, sweetest people I’ve ever met. Her classes are always well prepared, fun and knowledgeable. She makes every child and parent feel comfortable during every class and is very encouraging and respectful. She also puts on special events like Halloween and Christmas parties with fun activities and prizes which everyone really loves
