The ULTIMATE Music Class for Kids!
This is the pinnacle of our Kindermusik journey. We’ll combine the award-winning Kindermusik Move & Groove curriculum with hands-on instrument exploration: KEYBOARD, VIOLIN, UKULELE, SINGING, DRUMMING, RECORDER and XYLOPHONE. This class is the perfect step between early childhood music classes and private lessons!

In every Mighty Musicians Class, you’ll get to…..

  • Learn How to Play Instruments. Every 5 weeks we’ll focus on a new instrument: Keyboard, Violin, Ukulele, Drums, Singing, Recorder and Xylophones. We’ll learn the fundamentals of each instrument and begin playing some simple tunes.
  • Singing. In this class, your preschooler will increase pitch accuracy, expand vocal range, improve sequencing and memory recall through singing. Children will also begin singing songs in other languages.
  • Learn about Music History, Composers, Music Genres and Instrument Families.Your preschooler will learn basic music history including learning about the various genres of music, composers and cultures. Music history and cultural topics include: opera, marching bands, the orchestra, instrument families, American folk music and drumming around the world.
  • Read and Write Music. Your musician will learn basic music notation on the staff, rhythm reading, and music and vocabulary. This will led to an excellence foundation for future music lessons.
  • Gallop, Skip, Hop and Dance. There will be plenty of opportunities to get those little feet dancing. Movement is crucial to improving large motor skills and to help your child feel the beat in the music. Preschoolers will participate in various group dances and games which will help them learn social cues and expression.
  • Listen to Stories. The stories in this older class will frequently help to reinforce the featured musical genre, musical concepts and musical vocabulary from class. This skillfully provides children with different learning styles the opportunity to absorb the new information presented in the lesson.
  • Socialize. Preschoolers are learning to be self-sufficient in a group setting of peers and are learning to take direction from a teacher. By providing both a peer group during the first 30 minutes of class, and Family Sharing Time during the last 15 minutes, your child gets a balance of his drive for independence, and the still needed emotional security of having a caregiver there. In addition, your little one will gain social skills as they learn to take turns, empathize, build friendships, resolve conflicts and share.
  • Pretend. Pretend play activities are integrated with music, vocal development, storytelling, listening and movement. When based upon a child’s real life experiences, pretend play helps develop language, sensory, motor and cognitive skills.

After your Mighty Musicians Class, your learning continues with Kindermusik@home.

  • Every 5 weeks, you’ll receive a new downloadable music album with 15-20 songs, featuring the same awesome music from class. By playing the music at home and in the car, your preschooler will get the repetition needed to acceleration their language development!
  • The Kindermusik@home website includes fun and interactive stories, games and family activities to compliment the learning we do in class further enhancing your child’s growth and development.

Mighty Musicians Unit Descriptions

 ki_mg_drums_unitlogo_1880w Drums, Drums, Drums: Just say the word drum and any child within earshot will be ready to play. In Drums, Drums, Drums, we’ll focus on drums, percussion instruments, and music from Africa and South America. We’ll clap, tap, move, play, and echo different rhythms and learn how to identify and play quarter notes, quarter rests and eighth notes. Kids will get to play in an actual drum circle.
Kindermusik Sounds Abound Sounds Abound: Music was born from creativity—people using their voices, bodies, and objects they found, assembled, or invented to make new sounds. We’ll learn about the science behind music making while we invent our own instruments. Join us as we explore rhythm patterns, creative sound-finding and sound-making and graphic notation. We’ll use music to accompany storytelling as we explore Xylophones and other Orff instruments.
Kindermusik Move & Groove All Keyed Up All Keyed Up: There is magic to be found in those 88 keys! Immerse yourself in the magic of keyboards of all kinds. Listen to and learn about pianos, organs, synthesizers, and harpsichords. We’ll explore staccato and legato sounds, get to know the sounds of a few famous composers, and even experiment with composition. We’ll then discover the fundamentals of Keyboard playing through hands-on learning.
ki_mg_giggles_unitlogo_1880w Giggles: Nothing is better than small children with big senses of humor. Word play, tongue twisters, and silly songs are great for our bellies (belly laughs, that is), and great for cognition and vocabulary development, too! We draw on the rich tradition of humorous folk songs and even accompany ourselves on the Ukulele! 
Kindermusik Move & Groove Feel the Music Feel the Music: Music is a powerful trigger for emotions, and emotions can powerfully inspire the creation of music, too. In this unit, we explore how music can elicit feelings, as well as how to express feeling through music. We start with facial expressions as they relate to music and build up to listening to and engaging with the music of one of the great masters of emotion, Ludwig Van Beethoven. We’ll also explore the wonderful instruments found in Beethoven’s orchestra and we’ll get hands-on experience with it’s principle instrument: the violin!
ki_mg_jtp_unitlogo_1880w Join the Parade: In Join the Parade, everyone gets to be in the band! Move to parade and march music, learn to identify woodwind instruments, learn about music concepts piano (quiet) and forte (loud), and meet Henry, who accidentally creates his own musical parade with his Recorder! We’ll create one, too as we learn fundamental Recorder technique.
Kindermusik, Move & Groove Sing a Story Sing a Story: We’re off to the opera—it’s time to Sing a Story! You will meet some colorful characters from a Mozart opera called The Magic Flute, check out the hustle and bustle that happens backstage before a show, and learn more about Mozart, too. You’ll even explore the musical staff, and how notes a composer puts on a page become beautiful music!
