A world of magic and playful adventure

Just as the young kangaroo bounds away then back to the security of the pouch, the toddler is eager to explore alone then rushes back to the parent for reassurance. Kindermusik Wiggle & Grow recognizes your toddler’s need for both the freedom to try and the assurance of your support. Wiggle & Grow promotes spontaneous music making at home, introduces basic musical concepts, and provides you as the parent with the opportunity to take the lead in playing, dancing, and singing with your child in your own special way. We will encourage the building of characteristics related to successful learning in school: self-confidence, curiosity, self-expression, social skills, and cooperation. Come enjoy this time with your child as you enter her world of wonder, actively and joyfully interacting with her in class and at home.

What you’ll experience in class:

Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development. Your child will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead her to discover her potential for beat, rhythm, and melodic ensemble playing.

Musical Variety and Singing. Activities include a mixture of musical genres and styles and provide a setting for your child to explore his many voices and to use a “singing voice.” Singing helps with memory and recall, physical development, creativity and socialization. Plus, we offer two years worth of different units and themes.

Vocal play. Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. In Kindermusik Wiggle & Grow, vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class.

Exploration Time. Your child will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds and movements.

Story time and early literacy. Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help your child learn to read a book also help her learn to read music.

Movement Activities. Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.

Together Time. Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing you to make the most of the fleeting toddler years and giving you the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.

Expert advice. A Kindermusik educator explains how our musically based activities enhance your child’s complete development.

Learning continues at home. Each class includes a set of Home Materials with music, books, and more activities to share together, so the learning continues at home with your child’s best teacher—you!
