LEVEL 4
AGES 4 TO 6

Level 4 classes offer children exciting first experiences with musical symbols and more complex instruments, laying the groundwork for formal music instruction. You’ll join the fun for the final activities and watch as your child begins to master music terms and concepts, building a strong foundation for learning in other subjects like math, reading, and writing.

 

From the moment you became a parent, you wanted the best for your child. In class, we engage your child in music and movement activities that also promote language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Plus, your child will learn basic music vocabulary and notation—all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons. Parents join the fun for the final activities. The Kindermusik Online digital home materials extend the benefits all week long with music from class, activities for the whole family, and each month’s story.
