More Music ~ More Learning ~ More Fun!
COMPONENTS OF OUR MUSIC CLASSES FOR TODDLERS:
Our quality and
unique lessons facilitate musical, bodily-kinesthetic, linguistic,
interpersonal and intra-personal intelligence. Up until
about age 3-1/2 yrs, toddlers are mostly learning by observing and imitating
others. That's why the magical combination of parent and child with other
adults in a Kindermusik with Kathy & Friends class becomes one of the
best kinds of opportunities for using music to fuel a child's learning and
~Language Development - Your
child is on the edge of a verbal explosion, and Kindermusik gives them
lots of opportunities to practice and develop those budding language skills.
Singing and vocal play along with Story Time, chants, and finger plays all help
stimulate language development in a fun and pressure-free way.
Development - For toddlers, learning to use their voices starts with
imitating sounds, playing with the many sounds our voices can make, singing
short songs, and chanting simple rhymes - all with you as a model and
~Cognitive Development - You'll
be able to enhance your child's growing comprehension and cognitive skills
through happy classroom routines like coming to get instruments and putting
them away, musical activities that invite clapping and tapping to music, and
themes that engage the toddler's delightful sense of curiosity and imagination.
~Gross Motor Skills - Toddlers
on the GO love all their Kindermusik classes - we're never
sit still for very long! From holding and shaking instruments to walking,
running and jumping to stopping and going, you will enjoy being part of helping
your child's skills blossom through a wide variety of creative movement.
~Fine Motor Skills - At a
child when your child is becoming more and more independent, a little practice
with smaller-sized instruments, finger plays, and turning pages in a book means
that the hand muscles learn to cooperate more and more with the brain.
~Social Emotional Development - There's no doubt that your toddler is becoming his own
little person, but he still needs you as his anchor of security. Kindermusik
ensures your child's healthy social and emotional development through
predictable routines and special rituals, being around other children, practice
with sharing, and best of all, play time with you.
~Musical Development - Toddlers are delighted by music, and there's no better
time than in these early years to inspire what will become a lifelong GIFT and
LOVE FOR MUSIC! From drumming to singing to dancing together, you'll love
inspires your daily routines and strengthens the bond you share.

Testimonials from our Parents and Fans (Thank you!):
"When my daughter was a baby a friend in Canada suggested that we try out
Kindermusik, as she felt it was helping her two children to learn to
love music. We were very lucky to live here in Santa Barbara where
Kathy Hayden's Kindermusik program is one of the best in the world.
Kathy has built her program using her unique background in education and
musical talents so that it includes singing, dancing, and the playing
of instruments, so even the youngest children can become fully immersed
in the musical experience. Maria Montessori said, "A child learns best
through multi-sensory experiences. If a child can participate in a
concept with his touch, smell, hearing and sight, the concept will be
much more impacting and memorable." This proved to be the case! My
daughter completed the entire series of Kindermusik classes, and
participated in the additional Music Majors program that Kathy has
developed for older children. Every week for 8 years she looked forward
to her classes and they were the foundation for her continued interest
in musical exploration. Her current piano teacher says that her memory
for music is excellent, and I know that her previous experience with
Kindermusik is the reason! My daughter loves music, when she hears a
song she has to sing and dance along!
Thank you Kathy and Teachers, you have helped
make love of music something special that our whole family can share"
-Paige Miller, Santa Barbara
daughters have been attending SB Kindermusik for several years and it
has been an amazing program to be involved with. It has been a class
that we have consistently attended over the years as my children love
the classes. Kathy is so incredibly energetic and engaging with young
children that they always have a fun time and learn something from each
class. Kathy also offers fabulous birthday parties that are great value.
My daughter loved her 5th birthday party at Kindermusik. I would
recommend Kindermusik without hesitation to any parent of young
-Julie Barnes, SB
am discovering the joys of Kindermusik with my toddler granddaughter,
this is our special bonding time together. She is already "dancing" to
the music and showing a sense of rhythm. After raising my children with
Gymboree two decades ago, it is a real treat to reconnect with Kathy,
sharing her vibrant energy and love of children with my granddaughter! I
look forward to years of Kindermusik classes together!"
- Julie Wexler, SB
have been attending Kindermusik since our daughter was 1
years old. She absolutely loves it! Not only does she enjoy singing the
songs and reading the stories, but we feel she truly appreciates all
the different styles of music that come from this class! Whether it is a
country song, ballad, or lullaby, she is learning that music comes in
all shapes and sizes. As parents, we have seen our daughter get so
excited when a particular song comes on- and she demonstrates hand
movements or gestures that she learned in class. Kathy and her teachers do a
wonderful job of incorporating other aspects of fun and play- with an
air log, parachute, and towel rides...they keep the toddler-crowd
entertained and also plenty of variety so that each week it is something
different and new. We are always pleased with how clean everything is
kept, and how friendly and professional the entire staff is! Thank you,
Kathy!"- Dalina and Mike Klan, SB
