Throughout the Kindermusik process, your child has been learning the beat, rhythm, rhyme, and the appreciation of music. Now that your 5-7 year old is learning to read, he or she will be interested in learning to play the glockenspiel, reading notes, and learning about composers in an engaging way. Through games, stories, and dances, young children can gain a solid musical foundation that prepares them for private music lessons.
Kindermusik Level 4: Move and Groove: Build a Musical Foundation
Using a small-group approach to music education, Kindermusik Move and Groove provides a pressure-free class where your child can develop a strong musical foundation by learning the concepts, language, notation, and vocabulary of music and its greatest composers. The program prepares the young child who is eager for first experiences with musical symbols and instrument discovery but is not yet ready for formal lessons and traditional music reading with an instrument. Parents or caregivers attend the last 10-15 minutes of class.

What A Parent And Child Will Experience In Class
Singing and vocal development — It may sound like a foreign language when a child sings “ta” and “ti-ti,” but this is the language of professional musicians and composers and getting young children ready to read and write simple rhythm patterns.
Movement — See children dance expressively to music, giving them the practice they needs to coordinate their body movements to the sound of music. This kind of musical play not only improves musicianship, but physical coordination as well.
Reading and writing — Young children will learn melodic notation and identify pitches such as the C, A, and D notes on the treble clef, plus rhythmic notation. Eventually even composing their own music.
Focused listening — Children will learn to identify a range of orchestra instruments and their sound qualities, while also gaining an early awareness and knowledge of composers and masterworks in Western arts tradition.
Exploring and playing musical instruments — Authentic percussion, string, pre-keyboard, and woodwind instruments expose children to the many choices for future musical study, and at the same time provide them with the opportunity to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction.
