Kindermusik at Music Connections with Debbie Mondale

Children thrive on music!  The joy of music makes it one of the best processes to get your young child engaged, interacting, and learning.  Kindermusik makes it easy for you to enjoy music-making with your children from infancy through age 7, with guidance on how all of these musical activities help your child learn and gain important skills during the years most critical to their brain development.

In weekly classes, your child is caught up in the music with family and new friends, engaging in movement, rhythm, vocal activities, and creative play.  As the world’s leading provider of music-based education, Kindermusik’s curriculum, as well as the music, books, instruments and more you take home are designed to offer age-specific learning methods which lay a solid foundation for music education as well as whole child development at each unique stage in a young person’s life:

  • Absorbing infants, active exploring toddlers, engaging and amazing two year olds… all with their favorite partner (mom, dad, grandma, nanny…).
  • Students 3 – 6 years old participate independently with their peers as we integrate storytelling and imaginative play with musical concepts and skills to prepare them effectively for future music lessons.

Kindermusik programs at Music Connections in Lakeland are a great opportunity to connect with other moms and caregivers for meaningful relationships. With 20+ years experience, owner and lead educator Debbie Mondale guides you and your children through these group music making opportunities at a variety of times to fit your schedule.

LOCATION: VIRTUAL & OUTDOORS –  During this pandemic, you can participate in our Kindermusik classes VIRTUALLY from the comfort of your own home (read Parent Reviews to see why they LOVE it!)  OR, You may be able to participate in our limited OUTDOOR Kindermusik classes will be held on the DECK at 2700 S.
