About Us: An Overview music, movement, drama, and speech. Each instructor at Kindermusik with Miss Lindsay and Friends is dedicated to helping you, the parent, guide your Music is more than just notes on a page or a song that you sing. Music education can have a strong impact on the way a child learns. Scientific studies have shown that when a child plays a musical instrument (regardless of their skill level) they significantly enhance the brain stem's sensitivity to speech sounds. It has also been found when toddlers or preschoolers take music lessons, they demonstrate different levels of brain development and improved memory skills over young children who did not have a music education.
Feel the Music: Our Child-Centered Approach The teaching staff at Kindermusik with Miss Lindsay and Friends will engage you and your child in a musical journey with each and every class. Our classes encourage children to explore music through various sights, sounds, and movements. Our approach to music education is based on the works of Orff, Kodaly, Montessori, and Suzuki who each support the idea of a “child-centered” way of learning. The classroom experience mimics that of your child’s world of play. We break each activity down to its most basic form and build from there. We believe that parents are an integral part of education and actively encourage you to become involved in the process through participating in and supporting your child’s efforts. Together we will beat drums, sing songs, dance, and become the music.
