A Message from our Founder

We sometimes stop and ask ourselves, “Why are we doing this?” Through the journeys to Baumhaus and back, activity repetitions, and ups and downs of the infant and toddler life, we sometimes wonder what we’re moving towards.

Four Benefits of Music For Toddlers

Toddlers are well, busy. 

They love to go, move, do, and say “No!”  They also desperately crave predictability and routine.  Parents are challenged by near polar opposite behavior – one minute all is well; the next, there’s a meltdown.  A toddler will cling to mom as if he’ll never let go, and the next moment adamantly assert the independence of a teenager.  At the same time, toddlers are becoming very social, interested in other people and moving from parallel play where they play alongside other children to cooperative play where they start to play with the other children.

Ever Stop to Wonder How Important the Steady Beat is to your Baby?

If you’ve ever come to a Kindermusik class, you’ll notice that we will have a steady beat activity every week, in every age group. It might involve shakers, streamers, or drums. Or singing, chanting or lap bouncing. Or maybe moving our bodies or dancing. Or even stomping, gliding or tiptoeing.

A baby hears a constant steady beat (mom’s heartbeat!) by 22 weeks after conception. And every infant is born with the ability to keep a steady beat – his own internal beat. Sometimes in a Village class, a piece of music will match a baby’s own beat, and you’ll see him or her banging away in perfect rhythm!

Kindermusik is Therapeutic and Good for the Soul. 

Do you know that our accompanied classes aren’t just for your infants and toddlers? They are designed for the adults’ benefit too. We often delight in our children’s joy during class. Or we sometimes glance down at our phones and remember that stressful work email we received awhile ago. We even start talking to the person next to us during circle time about our challenges and difficulties as a parent or caregiver.

Fun and Meaningful Activities for Babies, 6-12 months!

Your baby may be halfway (or more!) through her first year of life, but she'll experience many more physical, mental, and social and emotional changes before that first birthday actually arrives. Not only is she more interested in the world around her, she'll soon be crawling, cruising, or walking around in it. There's no stopping her progress into toddlerhood, and with a little TLC, you can help her reach the next stage.

Baumhaus Talk Series: Teacher Miro On Two Year Olds, Helping Them Empathize and Adding Sense of Humor in the Classroom

While I enjoy teaching all Levels of the Kindermusik curriculum, Level 2 holds a special place in my heart. I started out my Kindermusik career teaching this Level first. The children at this Level have such a sense of wonder and joy as they discover the world around them. From striking the glockenspiel to howling at a drum in class, everything can be an adventure. I feel so privileged to be a facilitator to this wonderful world around them!

Baumhaus Talk Series: Teacher Vanessa on the Challenges of Teaching One Year Olds

One of the most challenging classes to teach is the classes for 1 year olds. Level 1 provide toddlers with a stimulating setting to explore their new movements and language skills with a sense of security, comfort and confidence. That being said, the one year olds are always moving, wanting to explore their bodies and surroundings, and they are also in a locomotor stage.

Baumhaus Talk Series: Teacher Bea and Teaching Babies

The first Kindermusik class I ever taught, was Cuddle and Bounce. Now called Foundations, this class is for babies, from 0-12 months. I remember how nervous I was when I entered the classroom. There were 4 babies, ready to learn, and here I was, fresh from my Kindermusik training, and unsure of myself as a Kindermusik Educator.
