60 minute drop off class & additional 10 minute play time before class.
Kindermusik Levels 4 & 5 provide a pressure-free class where your child can develop a strong musical foundation by learning music theory, music composition and reading music. The program is designed to prepare the young child who is eager for instrument discovery but is not yet ready for the rigor and discipline required for private lessons. We begin with learning and playing the glockenspiel, then the 2 stringed dulcimer and finally the recorder. If you plan on having your child study an instrument and your child is aged 5 or 6 years old, this is for you! Parents may “drop off” your child at class. Tuition includes a CD, a family songbook, activities folder, game bag and musical instrument each semester in a class briefcase bag.
