Music for Babies and Toddlers:

Kindermusik is an award winning programme that effectively combines Music & Movement in a fun and dynamic way, to stimulate learning and the brain development of the child.

We all know children thrive on music and babies are notably soothed by the sound of our voice when we sing to them.

Kindermusik takes musical learning for babies to the next level and our curriculum is proven to improve a child’s brain development in many ways. It’s also great fun for parents to get involved in the classes and to continue the musical learning at home.

Music For Babies: 0 - 18 months

Make baby’s first class musical! Our Foundations classes offer a sensory-rich yet caring and gentle environment where infants can explore and react to new sounds, sensations, and objects. Shared activities for babies and their parents provide the opportunity to strengthen your connection with your child through joyful music-making experiences.

Benefits of music for Babies 

  • Heightened body awareness and beginning competence in self-regulation of movement
  • Development of various basic gross-motor skills, fine-motor control, and coordination
  • Growing ability to recognise and follow patterns in music and move to a steady beat, fundamental skills that have been linked to maths and language

Music For Toddlers: 18 months - age 3

This class offers young toddlers a stimulating environment to explore their new movement and language skills with a sense of security, comfort, and confidence. As your child thrives in a music and movement-driven environment, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other parents and learn to use music to create and simplify routines at home.

For the older toddlers, they will initiate their own ideas and explore their creativity. Each class offers plenty of fun outlets for toddler-style energy, promoting cognitive development through singing, dancing, and instrument play.

Benefits of music for Toddlers

  • Increased alertness, self-control, and ability to regulate their own movements
  • Stabilisation of muscles necessary for healthy posture and overall balance
  • Improved coordination and locomotor skills, fine motor skills, and finger and hand strength
  • Strengthened ability to memorise, sequence, and predict patterns
  • Development of early pre-literacy and number skills
