2021 Summer Adventures: SPLASH!
Oh, the wonderous imaginative adventures that WATER brings out in our children. We’ll go fishing on the river, and play with penguins on the beach. Your backyard kiddie pool may be transformed into a river boat set out to explore the jungle creatures, or a pirate ship sailing the seven seas in search of treasure.
Your older 3 – 6 year old is likely eager to be more independent, have more desire to be a part of imaginative story telling adventures, and interact more freely with their friends. These inquiring minds are also ready for more complex musical play, like sound effects with story telling, and ensemble development. Students participate independently for 30 minutes, then parents and sibling join us for the last 15 minutes of class.
- $85 includes 5 lessons, physical book, Kindermusik beach ball & craft supplies, as well as access to new album online and in your Kindermusik APP.
- Separate Multi-age Events with Seasonal themes are also offered one Saturday each month for your family to enjoy together. (see PLAYDATES below)
- If your child is 4 – 5 years old and will be in Kindergarden during the next school year, you may be more interested in the next level of Kindermusik. Find out more by clicking on this button:

With the music, book and more resources as part of your home kit, you will have plenty of creative ideas to infuse your daily routines with music and meet the needs of these children, physically, mentally and emotionally… together… through music connections.
This program is right for you & your child if:
Your 3 year old child is becoming more independent and ready to engage more with peers than parents in a group learning situation. Some children may still need a parent in the room for a bit of reassurance, and that’s okay. Their confidence will grow and outgrow that need… gently. Your young student is gaining even more skills in their journey to become “school-ready” and develop into “young musicians”.
Enrollment in a Nutshell
During the school year, Enrollment remains $70 a month for a session subscription, and includes 34 lessons from end of Aug through mid- May. Our curriculum includes solid Core 15 week units Fall & Spring, each of which includes music, books, instruments & more. In January, you will love our unique 4 week unit, with digital music, story and online activities.
Enroll at any time, we’ll prorate your tuition to your start date.
If you have a child in this age range, you KNOW that their imaginations are in overdrive. This wonderful program allows us to delve into their imagination with them, shaping and reshaping familiar and delightful worlds where learning occurs as naturally as breathing, where singing comes as naturally as talking, and where children can explore being other people or animals, as easy as exploring being themselves. In the process, children gain valuable music skills, such as developing their singing voice, playing a steady beat, ensemble development, and much more that prepares them for success in further music opportunities, as well as for life.
Your young 3 year old may just be exploring the idea of participating without a parent in the room, and we lovingly nurture this growing independence, while recognizing the big emotions and need for support that may occur in this process.
Musically, you will often catch your child singing more as part of their day, as they stroll along in the rain (whether it is raining… or not), or sing a glissando as they glide down a slide (whether it exists… or not), or gather family and friends to be a part of a musical story with sound effects about a rain storm, followed by a rainbow song (even on a sunny day).
Here in Lakeland, FL, we are offering this unique opportunity for your imaginative preschooler to engage in story telling and music making with their peers independently for just a short time once a week. As a parent, you will appreciate how your child is met with consideration, respect and love for their unique personality and learning styles.
In the waiting room (for 30 min.), you may be listening in on the music making, sharing your own stories and problem solving with other parents, and/or enjoy playing with your younger child with our magnets, classic toys, and books… lots of books.
Through our private Facebook GROUP, specifically created for OUR enrolled local Kindermusik families , the PARENTS are also able to connect in a more interactive way. This is our happy online space where we can share our musical journey together, sharing pictures and stories from class, and home.
Together, we become a cozy support system for each other as we face the challenges and delights of this rapidly changing stage of life.
YOUR MUSIC AND HOME KIT
Have you downloaded the new Kindermusik APP on your phone or mobile device yet? This gives you access to a wonderful collection of music as a great start for your music library. AND…
For each new unit of Kindermusik you are enrolled, you will UNLOCK a new album of music with a new amazing set of songs and music to enjoy during our lessons together. Our 15 week sessions actually include TWO amazing extended albums of high quality recordings that are fully integrated with all of the physical materials.
For each new 15 week units, You will gain a full set of Physical materials, including an activity book with lyrics and engaging weekly “homework assignments” they will love, two literature books, and a high quality instrument, as well as a integrated play set that allows them to recreate many of the scenarios we initiate in class. If your child is new to this program, they will get a new Kindermusik backpack to carry it all, and bring homework assignments to class.
Our 2021-22 Session includes 34 weeks with a sequence of two 15 week units with unique themes and developmental focus.
Fall: August – December
- See What I Saw: Exploring Outdoor Park Play (15 week unit)
- Learning musical concepts through Movement & VOCAL development
- Feel the Music: Exploring Emotion in Music (4 week unit)
- Social-Emotional Development, exploring Dynamics and major/minor keys
Spring: February – May
- Toys I Make, Trips I Take: Expanding TOY Play (15 week unit)
- Development of Integrative Play & Ensemble development
Throughout ALL the weeks, Students are invited to follow through on interesting “homework” to continue to engage them through out the week, supported by emails and posts to our private FB group. We’ll also share tips, resources, and ideas for infusing music into your daily routines, and developing rituals for relationship building.
Through these multi-sensory music activities, your child can develop a wide variety of school readiness skills, such as turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. Repetition of these activities also promotes the ongoing development of their language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Plus, your child will learn basic music concepts, vocabulary and notation–all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons.
