Do you have a wiggly toddler? Great! Bring them to Kindermusik®!
For toddlers, every day brings new discoveries and opportunities to explore the world. Despite their growing independence, however, one- to three-year-olds still long for safety and security; they relish the comfort of the familiar while seeking the challenge of something new.
Kindermusik® toddler classes encourage your child to be creative, to initiate her own ideas, and to respond in her own ways, while your presence and participation offer needed reassurance and support.

What can I expect in a Level 2 class?
Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development: Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.
Vocal play: Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. In Kindermusik® Our Time, vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class.
Exploration Time: Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements.
Story time and early literacy: Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help toddlers learn to read a book also help them learn to read music.
Movement Activities: Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.
Together Time: Kindermusik® is the essence of quality time, allowing parents to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.
Expert advice: A Kindermusik educator explains how the musically based activities enhance a toddler’s complete development.
