Foundations


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 caregivers provide the opportunity to strengthen your connection with your child through joyful music-making experiences.

Activities

Listening to and experiencing songs and rhymes
Back-and-forth vocal plays and other parent-child interactions that build neural pathways in a baby’s developing brain
Exploring baby-safe instruments and other object play
Baby-caregiver bonding exercises, including story time, massage, and relaxation activities

Skills & Benefits

Increased balance and control over movements and strengthened core muscles
Ability to embrace both familiar and unfamiliar social experiences
Development of listening and back-and-forth communication skills
Introduction to a variety of spoken sounds and rhythms that will support language and literacy development



Level 2


No terrible twos here! Our Level 2 classes encourage older toddlers to 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. Better still, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other parents and caregivers who are also experiencing the joys and complexities of these busy years, while learning to use music to create and simplify routines at home.

We are excited to introduce our Kindermusik Instructor, Marlen Lane!


Marlen will be teaching classes for newborn to age 3 at both our Ballantyne and Indian Land locations!


We will soon be enrolling our Foundations class (ages newborn to 18 months) and our Level 2 (18 months to age 3).  We have decided that schedules for families will be more stable after Labor Day, so our classes will begin mid September.  Tuition is $72 for each of these 4-week classes. Price includes Kindermusik at Home materials.


We will have a FREE Preview Mixed Ages class at both locations in early September and will post details to this page, Facebook and Instagram by the end of this week.


Please complete the interest form below, and we will follow up with details on the FREE Preview and start dates for our classes.  We look forward to making music with you and your little one soon!
