When you bring children of all ages together you get a dynamic and integrated learning experience for everyone. So we took favorite Kindermusik songs and activities like “Shake, Shake the Apple Tree” and “hammocking” and rolled them into a fun,energetic family class where every child is welcome and a family’s “together time” is celebrated and cherished.

What you’ll experience in class

  • Singing. From the first “Hello” song to the last “Goodbye,” exploring a variety of musical styles and genres leads children to find their own voice. Plus singing helps with memory and recall,physical development, creativity, and socialization.
  • Assorted Movement.Whether moving as a family, as a class, or as individuals, Family Time movement activities enhance coordination skills, create opportunities for imitation and exploration, and give everyone something to smile, rock, bounce, or dance about.
  • Story Time. Reading aloud to children stimulates their curiosity, expands their knowledge, and broadens their understanding of language.
  • Family Jam Children (and adults) will love selecting a unique instrument and joining in one big class jam session each week.
  • Musical Concepts. Fun engaging activities bring out the musicality in everyone, from the youngest member of the family to the oldest. Together you’ll learn more about music as you learn more about each other.
  • Expert advice. A Kindermusik educator explains how our musically based activities enhance your child’s complete development.• Learning continues at home. With the home materials, the learning continues at home with your child’s best teacher—you!

Enrollment includes

  • 4 week theme (can vary by location)
  • Weekly 45-minute class (can vary by location)
  • A set of At Home Materials that includes a download: of music from class, story book and games/activities 


“I am so grateful for the Dinky Drum Kindermusik program! Finally something that merges learning with a joyful musical experience. Today my daughter, Riley (4 years old) read out loud in her class! And how did she learn…listening to the Kindermusik CDs. Dinky Drum makes learning fun! ”
