Infants to age 1-1/2 are primarily in a receptive mode of learning. With you there to nurture and engage your child, Kindermusik with Kathy & Friends'' Baby Music Class gives your little one the perfect head start, musically and developmentally.
~Language Development - You'll hear lots of sweet coo's and goo's before your baby's first words, and Kindermusik
activities will help you develop your baby's language skills through
vocalization in response to music, hearing his name in songs, and
exploring sounds with his own voice.
~Vocal Development -
Being immersed in a bath of musical sound becomes the precursor to
actual singing. Vocal play activities inspire your little one to begin
to coo, babble, and hum the beginning stages of learning to use the

the next as you expand your baby's movement repertoire through
activities that support rolling, crawling, and kicking during music, as
well as sitting and standing independently, and later learning to walk,

hands to learning what her hands can do, your baby will thrive on
playful activities with you that give her practice in visually tracking
objects and teach her how to reach, grasp, and release those objects as
well as to transfer them from hand-to-hand.
~Social Emotional Development - At a time when your child is becoming attached to you and just beginning to make her first connections with other people, Kindermusik
helps you strengthen the precious bond with your child through
cuddling, playing, humming, and dancing and also heighten the benefits
of social interaction with others through side-by-side play and group

her own, your baby is primed and ready to benefit from an early

Testimonials from our Parents and Fans (Thank You!):
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!"

"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, you have helped
make love of music something special that our whole family can share" -Paige Miller, Santa Barbara
have been attending Kindermusik with Kathy 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 team 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,

have been attending Kindermusik with Kathy 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 with Kathy without hesitation to any parent of
