Level 2: 2 years to 3.5 years
This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and her new friends and you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with the Kindermusik CD and physical and digital home materials, including music from class, activities, crafts, games, videos, printable's and each month’s story.
Your 2 to 3.5 year old's developing ability to feel, cope with and express emotions is so very important at this age. You'll see how the activities we do in class address the emotional characteristics and tendencies of this stage that we sometimes call the "rubber band" stage. We'll honor your child's desire for freedom and the chance to explore and experiment while we also make sure she feels safe and supported. The activities will encourage her to be creative, to initiate her own ideas and to respond in her own ways, while your active participation will give her the security she needs.
Our "Exploration Time" with musical instruments facilitates her discovery of opposites, dynamics, tempo, steady beat, rhythmic notation and playing music with others. Language skills are fostered with singing and vocal play. Creative dancing to different musical "moods" affirms her urge to move and improves balance and coordination. American Sign Language improves fine motor skills and cognitive abilities. The anticipation and rewards of listening are introduced, while turn-taking & inhibitory control activities improve social skills.
