Kindermusik classes are group classes specially designed for children up to age 4. All Kindermusik classes are created to best stimulate physical, cognitive, social and musical growth for your child’s specific stage of development, all while fostering a creative love of music and making the most of those special parental bonding years.
Our Kindermusik classes meet each month from September through May, with a combined family class from June through August. Tuition is $75 per month, which includes a digital musical take-home kit.
Sing & Play: 6 months – 2 years
Wednesdays at 9:30 with Miss Jill
Sing & Play is an energetic and joyful celebration of each child’s growing movement and language skills. A mix of parent-child joint activities and child-focused activities provide parents a unique opportunity to participate in all the music and movement, but also to stand back, observe, and revel in how these older babies and toddlers are beginning to walk, talk, sing, play, clap, tap, and dance—all on their own!
Laugh & Learn: 3 – 4 years
Wednesdays at 3:30 with Miss Jill
Laugh & Learn is a continuation of all the wonderful skills your growing child has learned from our younger classes, but with new music and foundational skills in music! While your child has mastered steady beat, bonding with Mommy, and socialization, this next level focuses on honing their skills to learn basic rhythm concepts, matching pitch when singing, and musical vocabulary like high vs. low, loud vs. soft. This fun class has one unit per month focusing on themes like African drum music and so much more!
Wiggle & Grow: 2 – 3 years
Wednesdays at 10:30 with Miss Jill
At Wiggle & Grow, your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and their new friends, and you’ll love helping them practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. Through creative movement activities, your child will develop a strong sense of rhythm, an increased vocabulary, and a joyful outlet for self-expression. Don’t miss this wonderful class!
When the school year is over, the fun and learning doesn’t end! In June, July, and August, our Kindermusik Summer Session begins. During the summer months, we group all of our age ranges into a family-style class for a whole new kind of learning dynamic. Younger students will learn with our older student while also learning from them. We look forward to seeing some familiar families and some new friends as well this summer!

Here’s some feedback from one of our Kindermusik parents!
“The Kindermusik program at Valotta Studios has been a wonderful program for my daughter to be involved in. She has really developed a love of music and instruments through the different units; she loves to participate in class and we listen to the music at home to reinforce the lessons of the unit. I appreciate that the Kindermusik curriculum includes sign language and other learning tools, combined with the music, to make the program educational on multiple levels. Our teachers really do make learning fun! I see Kindermusik as the first step to a lifelong love of music.”
