About Kids’ MusicRound (KMR) Music Classes
KMR classes are designed to guide children through the stages of early childhood music development to achievement of basic music competence. The highly researched music class curriculum sparks the inner musician in everyone, while also stimulating your child’s physical, intellectual, linguistic, and social development, promoting strong attachment between you and your child, and introducing you to other families in your community. We offer Infant-Only (calmer, less physically demanding) classes and Mixed Age classes to best suit you and your child. With each semester, your family receives a CD and a digital download full of that semester's music so you can take the fun of music class back home with you.
Each class is approximately 45 minutes long. Registration occurs towards the beginning of the semester, and our various package options allow you to choose how often you’d like to attend.
Our music classes are committed to inclusivity. Everyone is welcome and celebrated.
During our music classes, you and your child will:
Sing along to original, traditional and multi-cultural musical selections that introduce your child to a variety of different tonal and rhythmic meters.
Learn to keep and follow a beat through drumming, stomping, dancing and musical play.
Enjoy a bonding experience that will create memories and make a lasting impression on both you and your child.
Participate in music activities that help develop your child's motor skills - such as dancing, clapping and bouncing.
Experience the touch and feel of rhythm instruments specifically designed for tiny hands.
Your role as an adult in class is to participate enthusiastically and to set a good example. We request that you refrain from using your cell phone and that you keep conversation to a minimum while class in session. Remember: every child is watching you.
No food is permitted in class at any time. Drinks, bottles, and breast feeding are allowed.
When you accept semester materials, you accept the terms of enrollment. Withdrawal from the program is allowed after one class with return of unopened materials in unused condition.
By indicating your class choices on your registration form, you are committing yourself to that class time. Please make every effort to attend that class.
No refunds will be given for missed classes. Requests for make-up classes will be happily accommodated. (Refunds are not offered because so many classes are run in a semester, and we are happy to work with your schedule to arrange a makeup class. Our policy is very flexible, so we ask that you are, too!)
Older siblings not enrolled in the program are welcome to attend 2 classes each semester at no additional charge.
