Introducing Kindermusik with Kathy & Friends's Classes with Seniors, Families and Children together!! Now, we've taken Kindermusik with Kathy's supreme
curriculum a step further - by bringing this magical, musical classroom
into local senior centers and retirement communities. This is you and
your families chance to enjoy a unique, multi-generational class where
you'll foster valuable musical learning experiences with your children
while building personal relationships with loving and caring friends,
our elders. Many of the seniors claim this is their favorite day of the
week...when they get to see and experience the exuberant JOY of musical,
moving children, smile and touch hands with them...some seniors may
even dance with us! While the teacher, children and families sing and
play instruments, our elder friends join in by singing and playing
instruments with us. Children love passing out the instruments....and
getting those smiles back!
It's a whole multi-generational, multi-level ensemble of Music, Movement, Rhythm, Song and Dance... and LOVE!
KINDERMUSIK WITH KATHY & FRIENDS
is a music education
for the whole Body, Brain, Heart n Soul of A Child!
Creativity through the child's natural responses to music.
COMPONENTS OF OUR FAMILY TIME MUSIC CLASSES:
quality and unique lessons facilitate musical, bodily-kinesthetic,
linguistic, interpersonal and intra-personal intelligence. Up
until about age 3-1/2 yrs, infants and toddlers are mostly learning by observing
and imitating others. That's why the magical combination of parent and
child with other adults in a SBC Kindermusik class becomes one of the best kinds of opportunities for using music to fuel a child's learning and development.
~Language Development - Your child is on the edge of a verbal explosion, and SBC 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
~Vocal Development - For infants and 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 inspiration.
~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 your child's
delightful sense of curiosity and imagination.
~Gross Motor Skills - Young children on the GO love all their SBC Kindermusik
classes - we're never sit still for very long! From holding and
shaking instruments to crawling, 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 baby and toddler is becoming his own little person,
but he still needs you as his anchor of security. SBC 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 - ALL CHILDREN 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 how SBC Kindermusik inspires your daily routines and strengthens the bond you share.

been an amazing program to be involved with. It has been a class that we
