January Intake is starting soon … Enroll Now !!!

Listen and move. Play and grow. This is Kindermusik, the most trusted music and movement program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and young children.

Kindermusik® is about kids, parents, and teachers—coming together and having a great time! It’s about helping you grow closer to your child. Enriching her environment and her development. Giving him a lifelong love of music and a foundation for learning.

Theme of the new semester

Kindermusik Village (Newborn Babies - 18 months) ~~ A Bonding Experience

Dream Pillow — This title alone brings images of rocking, cuddling, singing, and lulling to sleep.  But leading up to sleepy time are many upbeat and playful activities.  Babies and Adults will swirl to a dreamy cloud dance “Meet Me Tonight in Dreamland.” They’ll also play baby appropriate instruments to “Aiken Drum,” and “Sarasponda.” Favorite nursery rhymes like “Wee Willie Winkie,” and “Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling,” are sprinkled throughout the classes. It’s easy to weave many of the class songs and activities into your families’ daily routines.

Home Materials: A board book that calms and relaxes—Dream Pillow Lullaby, Home CD of the songs heard in class, a set of Art Banners for the nursery wall that strengthens vision and promotes early literacy, and a Star baby instrument for music-making at home.

Kindermusik Our Time (18 months - 3 years) ~~ On the Go!

Milk & Cookies -- Make everyday home activities and chores easier and more fun with music! Cook and sing to “The Muffin Man”; dust and clean to the original song “In My House”; get ready to wash clothes to the delightful poem “Washing Machine”. Baking cookies, eating cupcakes, blowing on hot cross buns, wiggling like jelly, going grocery shopping and making tea are all represented in familiar as well as new songs. Move, play, and sing together in developmentally appropriate activities created just for 1 ½ to 3-year-olds. Capture the familiar and new moments of the day and learn how music can impact your toddler.

Home Materials: Double CD featuring songs from class; two books—At My House and Cookies, two Home CDs, stir xylophone instrument, and a Home Activity Book—all arriving in a durable lunch bag.

Kindermusik Adventures (3 years - 5 years) ~~ Music, movement, pretend play, stories, .....and fun.

On the Road —3 years to 5 years -- Re-live your childhood, with your child. Every song is likely to revive a memory from your summers’ past. Play “Eye Spy” and find shapes in the clouds to pass the time. Take imaginary trips in a bus named “Van Go” to fun-filled vacation destinations such as the carnival, a summer cottage, and the beach.

Home Materials: On the Road book, Home CD, frog guiro instrument, and poster.

Kindermusik for the Young Child (5 years - 7 years) ~~ Build a Musical Foundation

Semester One -- Everything your child learns later in semesters 2, 3, and 4 begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm. Through dances and games that focus on rhythmic development, we'll learn a keyboard instrument—the glockenspiel—which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes. Your At Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you'll hear about from class, so your child—and you!—can learn where you're most comfortable: at home.

Home Materials: Children’s Folder with stickers, games bag, and Music At Home Cards, Family Songbook, Home CD of music from class, glockenspiel, and canvas bag (during first semester).

Please contact us for a free trial class

Have You Heard Of Audiation?

Audiation is the ability to "hear" music when no musical sound is present. When you audiate, you have internalized music and are "thinking" music. For example, have you ever found yourself with a song "going through your head?" That is one demonstration that you're audiating. Being able to hear music in this way is an important part of musical literacy, just as thinking thoughts without speaking them aloud is an important feat in language and thought development.

Audiation First Steps

Music learning theorist Edwin Gordon, who coined the term audiation, identifies several stages of audiation typical for very young children from birth to age two to four. They are:

"1 ABSORBTION : hears and aurally collects the sounds of music in the environment.

2 RANDOM RESPONSE : moves and babbles in response to, but without relation to, sounds of music in the environment.

3 PURPOSEFUL RESPONSE : tries to relate movement and babble to the sounds of music in the environment."

~~A Music Learning Theory for Newborn and Young Children, by Edwin Gordon, p.38.

Perhaps you've noticed some of these behaviors in your child. You can enjoy observing your baby's responses to music and knowing that his musical growth is in evidence. Being able to audiate will benefit Baby as he grows and learns. Music can help him relax, cope with feelings, celebrate, create, and express. Audiation will allow him to carry these benefits and the gift of music with him wherever he goes!

An Invitation to Audiate

Omitting parts of familiar songs is one of the simplest ways to help children begin to "fill in the blanks" and hear music internally. Eg. In the "Sarasponda" activity, as the song grows familiar, add in an audiation twist. Leave off the final "oh!" of the song; then stop completely and observe and listen to Baby to note her reactions, Allow Baby several opportunities to offer the conclusion. Regardless of her response, you can be sure that this fun activity is engaging her listening and cognitive skills.

Audiating Activities at Home

Fill your child's day with music!

Whether you're a shower time singer or a trained musician, there is much that you can do at home to support and encourage your baby's musical development.

- Sing to your baby. When Baby is distressed sing a soothing song. Baby will begin to internalize the song, and someday she may be able to think about or hum the song on her own to comfort herself when she is distressed.

- Play music often. Put Kindermusik Home Cd in to play at every opportunity. You may begin to see some of the stages of audiation as Baby becomes familiar with the songs.

- While playing with Baby, sing a familiar song and leave out a key word or sound. Pause and watch for Baby's reaction. As Baby begins to audiate and learns to react this can become a fun game and the source of lots of giggles!

- While riding in the car, participate in family sing-alongs. Perhaps the adults can leave out some words that the children can fill in. Baby will want to be part of the fun, too!

Kindermusik Offers Unique Learning For Young Children

Kindermusik at Lirico Music School announces the launch of its year-end semester classes of Kindermusik, the world's leading music and movement program for children from birth to seven years of age.

(Press Release) November 16, 2011 - Kindermusik fosters the total development of young children through a combination of music and movement. Parents with newborns, toddlers, and 4 through 7-year-old children can participate in Kindermusik activities -- jingling bells, pounding drums, floating scarves, "hooting" owl sounds and little feet moving in time go music -- for a valuable learning experience for both the child and the parent or caregiver.

And it happens within a nurturing environment-full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight," explains Eliz. "By adding new concepts and challenges along the way, each age-appropriate programme acts as a stepping stone to the next-paving the way to a musical journey that can last seven magnificent, musical years."

Classes being offered this session are Kindermusik Village, newborns to 11/2 years; Kindermusik Our Time, 18 months to 3 years; Kindermusik Imagine That!, 3 to 5 years; and Kindermusik Young Child, 5 to 7 years old. All classes are 15 week sessions except for the Village class, which is eight weeks.

Issues & Insights Regarding Your Baby ~ Nov' 2011

Babies and Music

"Musical awareness is observable very early in life. [Howard Gardner, educational theorist who developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences] states that it emerges the earliest of all the different kinds of intelligence. The Papouseks, highly respected developmental researchers from West Germany, report that infants as young as two months can match the pitch, intensity, and melodic contour of the mother's songs, and at four months infants can match the rhythmic structures as well. These researchers feel that infants are even more predisposed to these aspects of music than to speech (Papousek, 1982)."

---"Theories of Child Development and Musical Ability," by Sally Rogers from Music and Child Development, ed. Franz L. Roehmann and Frank R. Wilson, pp. 2-3.

Your Baby's Musical Life

You may have already noticed that your baby is listening attentively to music. He may react to different types of music in different ways. He may become alert, move excitedly, relax, or even doze off depending on the nature of the music. By filling the spaces of Baby's day with music we are teaching him the many roles that music can play throughout his life. Music can help him relax, cope with feelings, celebrate, create, and express beyond verbal capabilities.

Musical Variety in Kindermusik Village
( newborn to 18mths )

Kindermusik Village introduces a great variety of music, representing diverse cultures, styles, and tonalities, as well as varied instrumentation and voice types. Cock-a-doodle-MOO! features Cantonese Lullaby, a soothing, traditional Chinese song; Hey Diddle Diddle, a simple, traditional English rhyme and song; Ritsch, Ratsch, a lively Swedish folk song, and Armenian Lullaby, a relaxing song in the minor mode. Not only will your baby enjoy reacting to these different styles of music emotionally and physically, but intellectually it is important that your baby experience this music. We tend to appreciate and enjoy listening to music that is familiar. By exposing your baby to a broad selection of music at an early age, you will help him have a rich "repertoire" of familiar sounds and styles that will make more music accessilbe and interesting to him throughout his life.

Music at Home

Allegro! Andante! Adagio...
Choose your favorite tempi for you and Baby. Pick a song from Kindermusik Home CD and sing it to baby slowly and then quickly. See if you can tell from Baby's response which tempo he prefers. Which do you prefer?

Play a track from your Kindermusik Home CD and dance with Baby using fast, pointed movements. Then play another track and slow dance with her. Try continuous, sweeping motions.

What Time Is It?
Play different types of music for different times of the day. Perhaps you could play a track when it is time for a nap, and play another track when it is time for active play.

A Musical Treasure Hunt
Explore everyday objects with Baby to see what sounds they make when you strike them with a spoon or shake them. Does there seem to be an object or sound that Baby is particularly interested in or finds humorous? Did you find something that you never expected to be musical?

"Children must receive musical instruction as naturally as food and withas much pleasure as they derive from a ball game... and this must happen from the beginning of their lives."
---Leonard Bernstein
