More Music ~ More Learning ~ More Fun!
COMPONENTS OF IMAGINE THAT! CLASSES:
3 thru 5
year olds are actively expanding their base of knowledge through trial and
error, talking, moving, and yes, even being a little silly at times!
There's no limit as to how far a little imagination, a lot of music, the joy of
being with friends, and some Sharing Time with family can take these eager
learners who are also on their way to becoming promising musicians in their own
~Singing/Vocal Development (the KEY component of
this class!)- Now that the speaking voice is more fully developed, we'll
turn our attention to finding the song that's in every heart. The singing
we do in class will expand the children's song repertoire, help them begin to
match pitch, and teach them to use their voices expressively.
~Language Development - your
child has a lot to say, and he loves to tell stories and share information.
gives your child an outlet for self-expression by capitalizing on his
capacity for imaginary play, his ability to follow 3-step directions, and his
interest in making up stories and rhymes.
~Cognitive Development - These
concrete thinkers are also curious learners who have an increasing ability to
think about ideas and things that are not immediately visible. Our Kindermusik
activities give lots of opportunities for stretching those cognitive abilities
through labeling, repetition, sequencing, and participating in pretend play.
~Gross Motor Skills - Skills
like hopping, skipping, running, and walking are refined as we add the
challenge of moving to a musical cue. Kindermusik helps your active
preschooler become more expressive in his movement, giving her lots of
opportunities to benefit from the strong connection between moving and
~Fine Motor Skills - Drawing
simple objects on paper or building a tower with blocks show that your child is
ready to take on the challenge of using a mallet and playing instruments with
greater variety and skill. Kindermusik provides a critical
bridge of musical learning and experience.
Emotional Development - Every child is a contributor in our Kindermusik
classes! Respect for each child and a knowledge of age-appropriate
expectations means that your child's teacher provides a secure environment for
each child to explore, learn, grow, and contribute.
~Musical Development - We tap
into your child's natural musicianship and developing musical skills.
We'll help your child find and develop his singing voice, explore the keyboard
and teach him a beginning vocabulary of music theory and terms.

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 SB Kindermusik 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 Taechers, you have helped
make love of music something special that our whole family can share."
-Paige Miller, Santa Barbara
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
