Our mixed-age classes are perfect for families
who wish to bring one or more children of different ages to the same
class, or for parents who simply prefer a mixed-age setting for their
child. These classes allow infants through 3.5 year olds—and their
caregivers—to gather together for a fun-filled learning experience. We will help you modify movement activities, group
dances, and instrument-play activities for each of your children.
Mixed-age classes offer the perfect setting for
weekly family bonding time and inspire ideas for more music exploration,
play, and fun at home.

Additional information for our virtual classes:
- There is NO expectation that the children will pay attention to
the screen or stay still in front of it during the class. As you are
well aware, children LOVE to move! They may spend most of the class
moving and exploring rather than doing the activities with you. This is
normal and to be expected and movement is encouraged.
- Children learn in many different ways; some are exuberant
participants, others are quiet observers. Both are equally valid
responses in class. Kindermusik is process,
not performance, orientated and the Kindermusik philosophy accepts and
respects each child’s response.During class the most important thing you can do for your child is
to be an active and patient role model. Up until about age 3, children
are mostly learning by observing and imitating others.
There are a lot of movement activities in class, including lying and
rolling on the floor, so dress comfortably as you will both be
encouraged to participate.
