Our Time

Our Time – ages 18 months to 3 years

In Kindermusik Our Time, the curriculum is designed for toddlers and focuses on the developing child in the earliest years with parents serving as a catalyst for that growth. With engaging musical activities, including instrument exploration,  creative movement, listening and Music & Movement Story Time, the Our Time studio curriculum focuses on the child’s healthy emotional development and recognizes his need for both independence and support. The Kindermusik Our Time curricula reflects the emotional foundations of school readiness and the latest research on music and early childhood development.

What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class:

Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development — Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.

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

Exploration Time — Children 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 toddlers learn to read a book also help them 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 parents to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.

Expert advice — A Kindermusik educator explains how the musically based activities enhance a toddler’s complete development.
