Spanish Fun

Kindermusik is an early childhood music and movement program based on the beliefs that every child is musical; every parent is the child’s most important teacher; the home is the most important place for learning to take root and grow; and that based on research, music nurtures a child’s cognitive, emotional, social, language and physical development. From birth to five years of age, classes will guide your child to grow with Kindermusik. There is no pressure to perform, only encouragement to explore, express and discover. You’ll see a development evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skill, self-esteem and musicality!
