Bringing Out the Song in Every Young Child.

Our Time is designed for children 1˝ years to 3 years of age. Along with an accompanying parent or caregiver, children meet weekly for a 45-minute class and enjoy singing, moving, listening, interacting socially, and playing simple instruments. Exploration Time encourages a child’s discovery of specially designed instruments, textures, sounds and movements; language skills are fostered with singing, sound imitation and vocal play; Music & Movement Story Time encourages emergent literacy skills; and creative dancing affirms a child’s urge to move. Kindermusik Our Time uses music to encourage early creativity and learning in children 18 months to 3 years. Music is the means of Kindermusik, not the goal. The goal is a more alive, creative, and able child.

 

The Kindermusik Experience.

In a world of television, video games, and mechanical toys, how can you hope to nurture your child's freedom of self-expression? Stimulate the imagination? Promote self-esteem? Kindermusik Our Time does all this and more at the very time when positive experiences can have lifelong influence. Kindermusik Our Time is second in a four-stage curriculum that complements your child's own inner timetable for learning. Kindermusik Our Time brings together six to ten children, each with a parent or caregiver present, in weekly 45-minute classes of singing, chanting, moving, listening, and playing simple instruments. When a class is over, you go home prepared to keep the Kindermusik experience alive all week.

 

Unique Support Precisely When it Does the Most Good.

Ages 18 months to 3 years are crucial for your child's development on a sensory and feeling level. Your little one is hard at work acquiring emotional responses vital to a healthy, whole personality. Kindermusik Our Time provides musical tools to help your child accomplish this all-important task. Music and movement are the perfect means by which a young child can exercise and strengthen these vital inner capacities. Why? Because music evokes a powerful feeling response, and a child will truly resonate with feelings when presented with properly structured musical experiences. The carefully selected music and movement activities of a Kindermusik Our Time class become the perfect learning setting. Each class provides exactly the sort of playful work for which children hunger, and toward which their own guiding instincts unerringly lead them.

 

Your Child Learns that Making Music Can be as Natural as Breathing.

Where, in this age of 200-watt car stereos, does a young child ever learn that music is something created from within a person, not from a noisy box? In Kindermusik Our Time, the key is joyful participation that makes the creation of music a natural part of your child's life. Kindermusik Our Time encourages your child's musical instincts. Promotes rudimentary musical skills. And begins the process of learning to think musically, an integral part of musical development best learned in early childhood. That is why so many music educators have endorsed Kindermusik, and why, since its inception in 1976, the Kindermusik program has grown into an international movement in the US, Canada, and ten other countries.

Somewhere between 3 and 4 years of age, something happens to your child.

Kindermusik Imagine That! is designed for active, energetic, enthusiastic and imaginative 3- and 4-year-olds and encourages socialization, sharing, and participating in group activities. Singing becomes a focus for enhancing the preschooler’s vocal development as her expressive language is just beginning to emerge. Pretend play activities are integrated with music, vocal development, storytelling, movement and literature to capture your child’s immense potential to learn and to encourage her creativity and individuality. Parents are invited to participate in the last 15 minutes for Sharing Time.

 

Between the ages of 2 and 7 years, your child will pass through several distinct learning phases. At each stage along the way, the Kindermusik series uses a developmentally appropriate curriculum to promote language skills, symbolic thinking, coordination, social interaction and to awaken your child's imagination. And when class is over, your child goes home with materials to keep the Kindermusik experience alive all week. Imagine That! is the third in the four-stage Kindermusik curriculum that complements your child's own stages of learning. The first stage is the Kindermusik Village program which celebrates the development of children birth to 18 months. Kindermusik Our Time is the second program which enriches children 18 months to 3 years. Kindermusik Imagine That is for children ages 3 to 4 years. The final stage Kindermusik for the Young Child guides the development of children 4 through 7.

 

Pretend Play... Real Benefits...Imagine That!

Dramatic play is a key aspect of Imagine that! both in class and in the home activities. In Imagine that! pretend play activities are strategically integrated with music, vocal development, storytelling, listening, and movement. Imagine that allows children to draw on their own life experiences to build upon their own learning. Throughout all of the activities, children are allowed and encouraged to contribute to the  activity by using their imagination. 

Pretend play is at the heart of the child's learning and Imagine That! provides a unique opportunity for a child to grow, discover and learn through music and creative play.

 

Teaching children to be creators - not just consumers - of music.

Something vital is lost when sing-a-longs around the family piano are replaced by compact discs and music videos: participation. Many people today have never known the joy of creating music - rather they've just passively absorbed it. Kindermusik provides an antidote to this learned passivity by making music a natural part of you child's life. Because so much of you child's cognitive, sensory and physical development occurs by age 7, preschool exposure to music can have a profound and life-long influence on your child's innate musical ability. A Kindermusik child has experienced music making as an innate part of being human. A Kindermusik child has succeeded with music, performed comfortably in front of others and through rhythm and ensemble work already knows the fun of making music with other people. That's why so many educators have endorsed Kindermusik. And why, since its inception in 1976, the Kindermusik program has grown into an international movement with more than 2,100 teachers in the U.S., Canada and other countries.

Students explore many facets of the musical experience speaking, singing, moving, dancing, listening, creating and playing instruments, as well as learning about reading and writing music. As the capstone to the child’s Kindermusik journey, Young Child broadens and deepens the child’s introduction to the fulfillment and excitement of musicianship.

 

Programs in Step with your Child's Learning Stride.

Kindermusik for the Young Child is the final part of the four stage Kindermusik curriculum. Since each age and stage provides unique learning opportunities, enrollment in Kindermusik for the Young Child doesn't require prior Kindermusik experience. The first Kindermusik curriculum stimulates the lives of babies birth to 18 months of age. The second Kindermusik series enriches the lives of children 18 months to 3 years of age. The third Kindermusik program is for children 3 1/2 to 5 years. Kindermusik for the Young Child broadens and deepens the music experience for children ages 4 through 7. Meeting each week, up to 10 children explore many facets of the musical experience - speaking, singing, moving, listening, creating, playing percussion instruments and learning about writing and reading music notation. The objective of Kindermusik for the Young Child isn't necessarily to make your child a musician. Instead, Kindermusik begins the musical learning that will enrich your  child's life.

 

 

Why Kindermusik will Strike a Responsive Chord in Your Child...

Any parent will confirm that 5 and 6 year olds approach the world with a very definite mindset. Young children are highly impressionable, but hardly blank slates. Each child is guided by his or her own inner drives and learning instincts. One of the best ways to make a deep, positive impression on these young explorers is through music and movement. Why? Because no other learning vehicle so completely embraces the whole child. Your child's entire sensory, emotive and cognitive self responds positively to the Kindermusik for the Young Child experience. The results are profound. Watch any Kindermusik class and you'll see the process: Joyful learning that can influence the entire course of your child's early life. That's why Kindermusik provides unique support for your child's development.
