Kindermusik® grows with your child, with classes for every age and every stage. You can enjoy classes year-round and move your child up to the next class level when he or she is ready. Our Family Class for all ages (0-7 years) offers families the convenience of one class for everyone in the family.
“We love Kindermusik at PCS! Because of Kindermusik, my son has developed a strong love of music and singing from a very early age. I know we did the right thing signing up for classes every time I see his face light up when he hears music and whenever I hear him start singing spontaneously.” – Angela
0s, 1s, and 2s
NURTURING. The first years are all about connections and learning. A lullaby will become a beautiful ritual before nap time. A sweet little finger play makes bath time extra fun. A quick dance around the kitchen provides a needed distraction around supper time. And all of these delightful musical activities stimulate your child’s developing brain and help your child thrive.
In class, we’ll teach you all of the songs, fingerplays, and dances you need, but we’ll also give you the time to settle in and savor the moment. The window for learning is open the widest in these early years, and there’s nothing more powerful than music and movement for you and your child.
2s and 3s
We’ll help you add plenty of social activity and together time to your week, both in class and at home. And we’ll give you the music to dance to, the songs to sing, and the lullabies to hum-along with the insights you need to better understand the precious little person that is your child.
3s and 4s
PREPARING. Using the power of music, Kindermusik® classes for preschoolers tap into your child’s creative spirit, boundless energy, and natural love of music. With listening, singing, storytelling, literacy, instruments, and pretend play, we’ll expand on the essential musical concepts, responses, and foundations that set the stage for readiness in school and in Kindermusik for the Young Child.
Activities focus on developing learning strengths and self-confidence, so your preschooler will be ready for school and music lessons. We’ll help foster your child’s independence as class begins with learning with peers and teacher, followed by an invitation for caregivers and siblings to join in the last 10-15 minutes of class for a special Sharing Time.

DISCOVERING. In Kindermusik® for the Young Child, your budding musician will blossom, developing skills in singing and vocal development, focused listening, playing instruments, and reading and composing music. Creative movement or dances are combined with music fundamentals for the perfect pressure-free preparation for piano, violin, or voice classes.
The curriculum introduces the glockenspiel (a pre-keyboard instrument) and string and woodwind instruments (including the dulcimer and recorder) as well as encouraging your child to explore his own instrument—the voice.
Through a variety of interactive, fun, and engaging activities, students explore many facets of the musical experience, including speaking, singing, moving, dancing, listening, creating and playing instruments as well as learning basic musical notation.
Kindermusik believes that you are your child’s first and most important teacher. We also know that children learn best through repetition, and that often they learn best where they’re most comfortable – at home. Your Home Materials empower you to take Kindermusik from class to home where the games, songs, dances, books, and quiet times make it easy for you to infuse music, joy, learning, and togetherness into your daily routine.
Just like a Kindermusik class, your Kindermusik Home Materials provide stepping stones for growth, building on the learning from one class to the next. Everything in your Home Materials are thoughtfully and creatively designed to help you and your child receive the full developmental benefits of music and movement.
BONDING. With older children ready to show the little ones how it’s done and the younger children eager to learn, Kindermusik® family classes are a multi-layered learning environment. Your children will listen to instruments and to each other, and will enjoy music and movement with hoops, scarves, and tumble-around play.
It’s hard to find time for things you can all do together as a family, so that’s why Kindermusik® is so special. See how music can help your family laugh and play together, learn from each other, and enjoy music together.
For Children with Special Needs
BLOSSOMING. The focus of Kindermusik® on the different developmental needs of each stage of childhood makes it an effective way to augment occupational, physical, or speech therapy.
Every child has her own developmental pattern of growth, and the special needs child is no exception. Instead of rushing ahead, Kindermusik® celebrates and explores each stage, fostering the joy and creativity in each individual child and respecting her unique pattern and pace of growth. As a result, Kindermusik® classes provide a unique place where the child with special needs can actively participate with peers of all abilities without pressure to perform in any way.
