Variety of Music -Musical diversity promotes creativity and acceptance, and builds strong neural networks in a baby’s forming mind. In class you will listen, sing and move to songs, rhymes and sounds from all around the world.
Instrument Play – Exploration promotes intrigue and independence. In Village classes, children play with age appropriate, child-safe instruments that deepen their natural sense of rhythm. This helps develop a keen awareness of the distinguishing qualities of sounds, and encourages spontaneity and creativity.
Dance – A classroom full of babies and parents (or care givers) dancing together with their child, helps a little body develop the muscle strength needed to crawl and walk and helps a little heart to fall in love with the sheer joy of responding to music.
Together Time – A Kindermusik class is truly the essence of “quality time,” offering the parent a place to create special memories with their child, gain new insights into their child’s development and nurture their child’s natural love of music.
Story Time and Early Literacy – Listening to stories enhances language and speech development, fosters awareness of sounds, stimulates fantasy and imagination, and encourages a child’s natural love of stories.

All Adventure classes are presented in sessions, and each session focuses on a particular theme. Here is some information about the current session, as well as the next sessions you can enroll in.
Summer 2015: Zoo Train! – Welcome to Zoo Train! Children love to go to the zoo! What excitement to see the many animals, hear their sounds, ride the train or tram around the park, and maybe take a ride on the bright carousel before picnicking on a summer day. A trip to the zoo is a classic family activity, offering young children a memorable and in-depth, multi-sensory experience. Zoo Train was written to capture these delightful experiences at the zoo, drawing on the movements, sights, and sounds of the zoo animals to inspire musical experiences and the beginnings of imaginary play. Each lesson features a concept theme, developed in the context of the animals you will meet that day. The lessons are designed to offer just the right balance of structure and spontaneity, of group play and individual exploration, and to offer the stability and gentle guidance needed to nurture creativity in the very young. Home Materials: CD, Zoo Train storybook, Funky Chunky animal shaker – elephant, home activities poster.
