We firmly believe, and research supports, that a solid foundation of basic musical training is the best path for children. This is why we start with concepts like steady beat and fine and gross motor skills. Our Young Child program, for ages five to seven, introduces stringed instruments (the dulcimer), keyboard presentation instruments (the glockenspiel) and wind instruments (the recorder). Your child can experience these musical genres and decide which they prefer and want to persue. We feel strongly that this is the best approach to shaping the Mozarts and Bachs of tomorrow. Simply put, Kindermusik is the best place to start and provides young children with a foundation for formal music training.
