Your 4 – 5 year old is ready to use a variety of concepts across multiple learning experiences. For example, exploring HIGH and LOW with our hands, with our bodies, with our voices, with props like scarves, with instruments that have high and low sounds, in stories with sound effects, and at the correct time in a piece of music. All of these skills are wrapped up in specifically designed activities that engage their mind through imaginative storytelling throughout the class. You would be amazed at the many stories about familiar activities in a park… playgrounds, nature walks, picnics… and the learning that is infused into these stories.
You’ll join the fun for the final activities and watch as your child begins to master music terms and concepts, building a strong foundation for learning in other subjects like math, reading, and writing.
Here in Lakeland, FL, we are offering this unique opportunity for your imaginative preschooler to engage in story telling and music making with their friends independently each week. Families share that their child often wakes up asking “Is music class today? Are we going to see Ms. Debbie?”
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, 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 using our fun magnets, classic toys, and 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.

There is no better place for little ones to learn about music than with Miss Debbie! We’ve been going to Kindermusik classes with her for over two years, and I am always amazed by her interactions with the children! I am a piano teacher, and I send students too young for private lessons to Mrs. Debbie. They will learn what they need to know to begin lessons on any instrument through the Kindermusik curriculum!
