Kindermusik

School of Music

Welcome to Kindermusik!

Experience the power and joy of music-making with your child

Kindermusik is an experience for parents & guardians to share with their children, creating and absorbing music in a fun and nurturing environment. Classes are organized into five stages, beginning with the earliest of infants through to young children of 5-7 years old.

Our programs focus on process rather than performance, thus nurturing the total development of children. This child-centered approach is carefully structured to reflect your child’s age and developmental stage. Kindermusik is an inclusion program, and instructors are happy to work with you to provide any accommodations your child may need. By encouraging children’s creative and musical development, Kindermusik builds a foundation for further music study.

Kindermusik is practiced internationally, with curricula designed by experts in the fields of Early Childhood Music Education and Child Development with an aim to recognize and celebrate the potential in every child, working to enhance knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm for learning through the power of music-making.

Register today to secure a spot for your child in one of our many Kindermusik programs, and scroll down to find full program descriptions for the coming year!
