NEW! For the WHOLE FAMILY… A family-style version of WIGGLE & GROW
This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of childhood. Each week your children will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with each other and with the others in class. During class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with our all-new Kindermusik@Home digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and the story from each unit.
For BABIES newborn to 1.5 yrs… ZOOM BUGGY and DREAM PILLOW
How many ways can you and your Baby ZOOM? Hop in the ZOOM BUGGY and find out! Get ready to experience the rumbling of a baby buggy, the squeaky stroller, the bumpa bumpa bumpa of the wagon, the train chugging up the track, and much more.
Your child is the star in DREAM PILLOW, with each activity carefully planned to stimulate his developing brain, thereby promoting physical, social, cognitive, emotional, and language development. But it is the parent who is watching and guiding this little star on the rise, and Dream Pillow, like all Village units, is written with the parent very much in mind.
Home Materials with each unit: A literature book, baby-safe instrument, Home CD, and Art Banners
For TODDLERS 1.5 to 3 yrs… MILK & COOKIES
You never knew how fun it could be to stir, wash, dust, hammer and saw until you added a song! It’s all about helping at home, and what better place than a cozy kitchen or Dad’s workshop to nurture a toddler’s need for security balanced with his need for independence. Delightfully captured in Milk & Cookies, these special moments at home are times to be shared and treasured through the joy of music.
Home Materials: Literature books, stir xylophone, Home CDs, Home Activity Book, and Carry Bag
For PRESCHOOLERS 3 to 5 yrs… HELLO, WEATHER! LET’S PLAY TOGETHER
Cloudy with a chance of musical fun! It’s time to turn your attention to the sky as you pretend to jump in mud puddles, make a musical storm, sled in snow, slide around in the wind, and whistle with Mr. Sun. Children will be surrounded in a creative musical environment that integrates music, pretend play, story telling, movement, and more. Children will explore a variety of musical concepts, like fast and slow and loud and soft. Adding to the thrill are at home projects such as making wind chimes, rain hats, sleigh bells and snow boots!
Home Materials: Literature books, ankle bells and rain shaker, Home CDs, Home Activity Book, Story Play Cubes, and a Backpack (free for all first-time IT students!)
For BIG KIDS to 7 yrs… YOUNG CHILD SEMESTER 1 or SEMESTER 2
Semester 1: Is your child ready to read and write music? We’ll get you there with age-appropriate dances and games. And a keyboard instrument – the glockenspiel – which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes to get ready for piano lessons. Themes include “Music is Everywhere”, “Meet the Mallets”, and “Discovering Melody and Mozart.”
Semester 2: Your child will continue to build on skills introduced in Semester 1 with new call and response songs, dances, and games. Children will learn to play new songs on the glockenspiel while practicing musical concepts and notation. Special focus is given to the instrument sounds of strings and woodwinds. You’ll also delight in Peter and the Wolf and an excerpt from Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
Home Materials: Song book, glockenspiel (semester 1), Home CD, Music at Home cards, Folder, Activity Pages, Games Bag, and carry bag (free for all Sem. 1 students!)
