Kindermusik at Music Connections with Debbie Mondale

When you see your young child dancing to any music in range, or hear them singing to themselves, or feel them tapping out a beat on your hands or a set of pots and pans, you’ve got to wonder, How can I nurture this love of music at this young age? It is absolutely possible¦ even for very young babies¦ to build a good foundation for music, as well as allow music to help them blossom personally at each of these ages and stages! Kindermusik classes are a great opportunity to meet other moms and enjoy a safe environment for making connections through music in so many ways.

Watching a classroom of children and families, it is easy to see the joy in making music together. Children are engaged in their own way, exploring their own abilities, connecting with a parent, and interacting with other children. And Kindermusik is so much more than that. At each age, there is an integrated curriculum carefully designed around the sensitive periods for learning specific concepts and skills, both musically and developmentally.

  • Foundations – Infants up to active walking
    Music for Nurturing through Together Time
  • Level 1 – Active Walking babies to 24 months
    Music for Active Exploring through Together Time
  • Level 2 – Almost Twos to Young Threes
    Music for Engaging Learners with Together Time
  • Level 3-4: Threes and Fours
    Music for Expanding and Preparing with Peers Independently
  • Level 5: Fives & Sixes
    Music for Developing Young Musicians with Music Theory, History & Culture
  • Mixed Age: Babies through Fives
    Music for Connecting Families and Friends

Let’s Talk: Take a quick moment to REQUEST a VISIT, so we can work together to schedule a chance for you and your child to join in the magic of making music together.
