Music class for families with multiple children ages newborn and up
In ten weeks, you'll play instruments together, dance together, share, and take turns, and see how music can bring you closer as a family.
A one-room schoolhouse approach to music. With older children ready to show the little ones how it's done and the younger ones eager to learn, Family Time becomes a multi-layered learning environment. Each week, a Kindermusik Educator will introduce basic musical concepts and then give you the instruments, and the structured free time to put those concepts into play.
Your children will listen to instruments and to each other, learn from their peers and older children, and enjoy music and movement with hoops, scarves and tumble-around play. Story time and family jams, puppet play and happy singing—all the Family Time activities encourage discovery and exploration and foster sharing and social skills too. In this special place for musical, social and emotional learning, your children will strengthen their ties with each other and with you—and they'll start developing the skills they'll need in school and on the neighborhood playground.

Enjoy the Journey All Week Long
Each family receives a set of At Home Materials designed to integrate the classroom learning experience with the fun, Friday night activities you do together as a family. With music from class, story books, and creative play ideas and trivia, At Home Materials help your children associate learning with the unique time you spend together, bonding as a family. Repetition and family involvement in a child's learning is a fundamental cornerstone of the Kindermusik philosophy because we believe the parent is the child's most important teacher and the home is the most important place for a child's learning to take root and grow.
Family Time At Home Materials are designed for two children:
- One hand puppet and finger puppet
- Two instruments
- Two literature books
- Two CDs
