“There is really something special about
Miss Susan’s quiet warmth,
and how that translates into a children’s
class that is engaging while still feeling peaceful.”

enjoy a carefully chosen balance of activities each week that will be fun for everyone !
There are four independent Level Two units, so your family will
always have new songs to love! This winter features the
transportation theme, “Away We Go!” with songs, creative
movement, dances, bounces, stories, finger plays, and instrument play alongs that build your relationship with your child or grandchild, as well as music and life skills!
Each week children will learn from their peers and older children, enjoying music and movement with percussion instruments, hoops, scarves, and more! Story time, family jams, dancing, musical play, happy singing – every activity encourages discovery and exploration, and fosters sharing and social skills too!

Benefits for Toddlers
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.
- Language Development – Your child is on the edge of a verbal
explosion, and Kindermusik gives her lots of opportunities to
practice and develop those budding language skills. Singing and
vocal play along with Story Time, chants, and finger plays all help
stimulate language development in a fun and pressure-free way.
- Vocal Development– For toddlers, learning to use their voices starts with imitating sounds, playing with the many sounds our voices can make, singing short songs, and chanting simple rhymes – all with you as a model and
- Cognitive Development – You’ll be able to enhance your child’s growing comprehension and
cognitive skills through happy
classroom routines like coming to
get instruments and putting them
away, musical activities that invite
clapping and tapping to music,
and themes that engage the
toddler’s delightful sense of
curiosity and imagination.
- Gross Motor Skills – Toddlers on the go love all their
Kindermusik classes – we’re never still for very long! From
holding and shaking instruments to running and jumping to
stopping and going, you will enjoy being part of helping your
child’s skills blossom through a wide variety of creative
- Fine Motor Skills – At a child when your child is becoming more
and more independent, a little practice with smaller-sized
instruments, finger plays, and turning pages in a book means that
the hand muscles learn to cooperate more and more with the
- Social Emotional Development – There’s no doubt that your
toddler is becoming his own little person, but he still needs you as
his anchor of security. Kindermusik ensures your child’s healthy
social and emotional development through predictable routines
and special rituals, being around other children, practice with
sharing, and best of all, play time with you.
- 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. From drumming to singing to dancing together, you’ll love how Kindermusik inspires your daily routines and strengthens the bond you share.
- Brain Development – “Miss Susan” is also your guide into how
each activity contributes to your child’s development.
Kindermusik engages in ongoing research about music and brain
development that keep us in the forefront of early childhood
