Music Classes for Big Kids (4.5 – 7 years old)
Give Your Big Kid an Advantage in School and in Music Lessons!
Prepare your big kid for that next big step… musically, academically, socially, and developmentally. Your budding musician will develop a strong musical foundation in an exciting, pressure-free Kindermusik for the Young Child class.
Your child will be delighted to astonish you as they:
- learn the concepts, language, notation, and vocabulary of music and its greatest composers.
- explore steady beat, metre, and rhythm;
- play the glockenspiel, dulcimer and recorder;
- develop their speaking and singing voice;
- develop an analytical ear;
- participate in a variety of ensemble experiences;
- create musical compositions.
You are invited* to join the fun for a portion of each class, sharing in the joy of music-making and learning through your Kindermusik teacher how your child is developing, all while strengthening your relationship with your child.
* for non-school based classes
Your music experience doesn’t stop when your lesson finishes each week. You will have access to music, developmentally appropriate activities, useful parenting information, and more with your physical home materials.

How will my big kid benefit from Kindermusik classes?
Between the ages of 4 1/2 to 7, the young child learns best when they are actively engaged in making music. While the need for more concrete information and skill development is at hand, play remains the primary way the young child learns. You’ll love the many ways our big kids music classes prepare your young musician for a successful future in school and in music lessons.
Musical Development – Kindermusik taps into your child’s natural musicianship and developing musical skills. Be prepared to be amazed at your child’s knowledge of musical structures and expressive qualities, as they continue to experience music through listening, moving, singing, game-playing, instrument playing and ensemble works.
Language Development – Your child is on the edge of a verbal explosion – as they sing and vocal play along with story time, chants, and finger plays, their vocal and language development is stimulated in a fun and pressure-free way.
Cognitive Development – Your child will develop their ability to extend what has been learned in one context to a new context through musical games.
Gross & Fine Motor Skills – Your bid kid will be able to use expressive movement to experience and convey musical concepts; and increase fine motor control through instrument playing, writing, and drawing.
Social Emotional Development – Every child is a contributor in our Kindermusik classes! Your child will cooperate with their partners and class in dances, games, and musical ensembles. Your Kindermusik teacher’s respect for each child and a knowledge of age-appropriate expectations also means that each of your child has a secure environment to explore, learn, grow, and contribute.
