Village – Full Program Information
The classic world of mother goose, as well as time-honored songs, fingerplays, lap bounces and circle dances from around the world are celebrated in this fun semester. The book is a favorite among Kindermusik families, and features a little mouse who plays around the clock in such a way as to teach spatial concepts.
A child’s day is filled with routines that help that child feel safe, allowing them to turn their focus to learning from their environment. This semester celebrates the rhythmic nature of these routines, and notably creates and/or enhances the special rituals that occur between the parent and the child during these routines. The music on this CD is Jammin’, full of island style calypso and complex rhythmic beats from many cultures – it is a Favorite of Kindermusik families.

Imagine That! – Full Program Information
“Cities! Busy Places, Friendly Faces” allows children to musically explore and celebrate many of the aspects of living in a city, all of the wonderful sights and sounds, including silent statues as well as the complexities of the wonderful timbres that can be heard on the busy thoroughfares. In our story telling, we follow the adventures of a little boy and his dog, as they take walks through the city, and even what happens when the dog gets lost. Many types of people are found in the city, artists, musicians, and even mime artists, and we enjoy taking “photos” of all the people we meet.
The children use their beautiful sounding resonator bars to reflect the sounds they hear from Steeple Bells, and practice steady beat and ensemble development. And the very creative cards and puzzle board can be used to play an incredible amount of different games and activities.
The class structure is very much the same as the Imagine That! program, students participate independently and parents join for the final activities. The special component is the Kindermusik@Home materials are offered ONLINE, so that you and your child can access the music, the stories, as well as fun musical games and enhancement for each unit theme on your computer, tablet, or phone.
Carnival of Music is a fun unit exploring the wonder filled world of the Carnival.
