Can I try a class before I register?

A: Absolutely! Call or email to set up a day and time to visit a Kindermusik class where you can meet the educator, talk with the parents, and enjoy the Kindermusik experience with your child.

Can I register at anytime during the semester?

A: Yes! Tuition is prorated for late registrations.

What if my child does not participate?

A: Most children adore music and love to dance, sing, and play musical instruments. A group music experience may be new to your child and he/she may be shy in the group. That is okay! Some children are naturally hesitant and some become over-stimulated in a group. You may see a completely different child at home as you share your Kindermusik activities there. That is normal and to be expected as home is where children are the most comfortable. Much of what a child sees and hears in class will be demonstrated at home.  It is the norm for many children to attend four or five classes before they begin to be comfortable and participate. Many spend the first few classes observing and that is okay! As long as your child is in the classroom and observing, he/she is learning! Keep in mind that Kindermusik is about process, not performance.

Are the materials required?

A: Yes. In addition to attending classes with your child, you can continue the benefits of Kindermusik by using the activities at home where the entire family can participate and benefit. Children who use the home materials on a regular basis tend to participate and focus well in class. Music becomes a part of everyday life instead of just a once a week activity.
