Kindermusik

Cascade School of Music utilizes the Kindermusik curriculum for ages newborn through 5 years old. Kindermusik is an internationally-acclaimed program for early childhood music. Led by our certified educators, Kindermusik's research-based programs will enhance your child's development and instill a lifelong love of music. We offer the full range of Kindermusik classes so you can engage when the time is right for your family. 

Bond with your child as you play, sing (no talent required!), dance, and giggle together. Your child will learn and grow through activities that stimulate brain growth, build motor skills, enhance social-emotional development, and much more. A trained, licensed Kindermusik educator seamlessly guides the class from one activity to the next and helps you understand what your child is learning. Your educator will also show you how to continue the fun—and the learning—beyond the classroom.

Each class meets once a week for 45 minutes. We ask for parent or guardian participation in our Kindermusik classes.
