Class Description

In Cuddle & Bounce, a joyful first Kindermusik experience, parents and their newborns, infants, and crawlers engage in instrument play, dance, exploration time, and together time. As they do so, they strengthen critically important early parent-child bonds; learn about their babies’ early development, fine-tune their baby-communication skills, and receive expert advice and parenting resources based on the most recent research in early childhood development. Welcome to the magic time of life, that all-too-fleeting first chapter of life when miracles happen daily!

What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class

Language Development

You’ll hear lots of sweet coo’s and goo’s before your baby’s first words, and Kindermusik activities will help you develop your baby’s language skills through vocalization in response to music, hearing his name in songs, and exploring sounds with his own voice.

Vocal Development

Being immersed in a bath of musical sound becomes the precursor to actual singing.  Vocal play activities inspire your little one to begin to coo, babble, and hum – the beginning stages of learning to use the voice.

Cognitive Development

Little minds present a big window of opportunity, a window that’s actually only open for so long.  Simple musical play activities increase your baby’s brain development by locating sounds though instrument and object play and feeling a steady beat.

Gross Motor Skills

One thing will naturally lead to the next as you expand your baby’s movement repertoire through activities that support rolling, crawling, and kicking during music, as well as sitting and standing independently, and later learning to walk, march, and dance.

Fine Motor Skills

From discovering her hands to learning what her hands can do, your baby will thrive on playful activities with you that give her practice in visually tracking objects and teach her how to reach, grasp, and release those objects as well as to transfer them from hand-to-hand.

Social Emotional Development

At a time when your child is becoming attached to you and just beginning to make her first connections with other people, Kindermusik helps you strengthen the precious bond with your child through cuddling, playing, humming, and dancing and also heighten the benefits of social interaction with others through side-by-side play and group dances.

Musical Development

Whether you are bouncing your child to the steady beat or she is doing a fledgling “bouncy” dance on her own, your baby is primed and ready to benefit from an early introduction to music through exploring instruments, listening to sounds, and moving to music.
