Music Classes for Toddlers (approx 1.5 – 3 years old)
Each week, you can nurture your toddler’s energy and creativity in a Kindermusik class designed for your child on the move!
We understand that toddlers want to do it all, but really thrive most with your guidance and helping hand.
In each Kindermusik music and movement class, you will watch your busy toddlers explore and discover, be creative, initiate their own ideas, and respond in their own ways, while you actively participate and be present to provide the reassurance and support your child needs.
Together, you and your toddlers will play and explore instruments, sing and move to music, hear and act out simple stories and rhymes … You will be delighted to see your toddlers immerse in the musical world and at the same time build their self-confidence, self-control, and communication skills.
You will also learn through your Kindermusik teacher what and how your toddlers are learning and developing with each activity, and get tips for weaving music into your daily routines at home.
Your music experience doesn’t stop when your 45-minutes lesson finishes each week. You will be given anywhere-access to music, stories, developmentally appropriate activities, useful parenting information, and more with your Kindermusik@Home digital and physical materials.

How will my Toddler benefit from Kindermusik classes?
Up until about age 3, toddlers are mostly learning by observing and imitating others. That’s why the magical combination of parent and child with other adults in a Kindermusik class becomes one of the best kinds of opportunities for using music to fuel a child’s learning and development.
Musical Development – Toddlers are delighted by music, and there’s no better time than in these early years to inspire what will become a lifelong love for music. You’ll love how Kindermusik inspires your daily routines and strengthens the bond you share as you and your toddler drums and sings and dances together.
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’s comprehension and cognitive skills grow as they follow happy classroom routines like coming to get instruments and putting them away, clap and tap to music, and engage their sense of curiosity and imagination through interesting lesson themes.
Gross & Fine Motor Skills – Your toddler is never still for very long! You will enjoy being part of helping your child’s motor skills blossom through a wide variety of creative movement from holding and shaking instruments to running and jumping to stopping and going. You will also be amazed at how playing with smaller-sized instruments, finger plays, and turning pages in a book means that your toddler’s hand muscles learn to cooperate more and more with their brain.
Social Emotional Development – You will be assured that as your child enjoys predictable routines and special rituals, being around other children, practice with sharing, and best of all, play time with you, they are developing a healthy social and emotional mind.
