Kindermusik Program Now Registering at Mount Union
August 24, 2012
ALLIANCE, Ohio — Kindermusik, a music and movement program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and young children, is now registering for classes at the University of Mount Union.
Increasingly, the focus of the research community turns to music as a vehicle to deliver a learning experience to children. Early, positive and age-appropriate experiences with music, such as a Kindermusik program, can have an impact on a child’s language and literacy skills, social and emotional development, mathematics and pattern-recognition skills, ability to plan, guide and self-regulate behavior and overall music and vocal development.
The Kindermusik program is being offered by Deborah Garren, music specialist and Kindermusik educator.
Moms, dads, caregivers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and kids are encouraged to be involved in classes.
Classes, open to children ages birth through seven years, will begin on September 10. Class times are as follows:
- 9:30 a.m., Village (birth-18 months), Presser Recital Hall, Cope Music Hall
- 10:30 a.m., Our Time (18 months-three years old), Presser Recital Hall, Cope Music Hall
- 5:30 p.m., Imagine That (3-5 years), Room 167, Cope Music Hall
- 6:30 p.m., Young Child Level I (5-7 years), Room 167, Cope Music Hall
Cost for the program is $275 per child for a 15-week session and includes supplies. Each class is 45 minutes in length. Up to 15 reservations per class session will be accepted.
To register for the class, call (330) 823-2180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
