Kindermusik Class for babies to 7 years old alphonsus music studio

Create memories and make learning fun in our music classes for babies and toddlers.

In Alpohonsus music classes for toddlers, babies, big kids, and families, we sing, dance, giggle, hop, travel on imaginative adventures, cuddle, play instruments, share ideas, read stories, celebrate the uniqueness of each child, and more! As a trained and licensed Kindermusik educator,  Alphonsus leads the class through music and movement activities with proven developmental benefits that include boosting early literacy and language abilities, social-emotional skills, cognitive development, and gives children many opportunities to practice fine- and gross-motor skills in a fun, loving community of families.

Apart from those ‘usual’ baby bonding activities such as rocking, infant massage, exercise, lullaby, our Educators do much MORE such as teaching families how sound exploration, listening activities, and dances help babies communicate, stimulate eye-tracking skills, and learn to move and coordinate new muscles.

In Kindermusik Musicians classes, we aim to create a  joyful, encouraging team environment that help your child build a true love for music. In addition, Kindermusik Musicians classes teach children how to read musical notation, play instruments such as the recorder and glockenspiel, providing opportunity for children to explore new genres, and providing the tools they need to succeed in future instrument-specific music lessons.
