Frequently Asked Questions
When and how do I register?
Visit our Contact Our Studios page to find our individual studio e-mail and phone numbers. Since we are all independently operated, we do not have a centralized registration system and we only post our schedules on our own websites not on this website. Programs typically start in September and January, however, courses run for 4-16 weeks and take place at various times throughout the year. We recommend finding a studio that is close to home and checking out our schedules on our individual websites:
- Kindermusik at Donna's Studio (East)
- Tuneful Beginnings with Angelika Nixdorf (South)
- Conservatory of Performing Arts (Central)
How old does my child have to be?
No child is too young to start Kindermusik. We offer age-appropriate classes for children ages newborn to seven years.
What happens in a Kindermusik class?
There are games, songs, stories, dances, instrument play, and social time. Activities in a Kindermusik class are designed to develop and strengthen your child's physical and neural functions, social-emotional skills, early literacy and early math, and much, much more.
How is Kindermusik different from other music programs for children?
The majority of Kindermusik classes are geared to specific ages. This means your child experiences class with "peers" and the activities match your child's developmental stage. Kindermusik does not teach a specific instrument, but engages children and adults in the joy of experiencing and making music.
My child has special needs. Will he or she be able to participate?
We welcome special needs children and have found they thrive in the Kindermusik environment. We recommending contacting our Kindermusik educators directly to discuss your child's needs.
Do I have to attend the classes with my child?
Most of our classes require that a parent or caregiver accompany the child. Kindermusik classes are specifically designed to spark interaction between you and your child; you are your child's first and best teacher. As your child grows older, he or she will spend most of the class time with just the teacher, but parents are always included in a portion of every Kindermusik class.
What if my child doesn't participate in class?
Children learn in different ways and have different ways of engaging with new situations. Simply because a child appears shy or uninterested in class, that doesn't mean he or she is not learning. Parents often report that children who are quiet in class start singing the songs and doing the activities when they get home.
Why are the home materials required?
At the heart of the Kindermusik philosophy is the idea that the home is the most important learning environment and the parent is the child's best teacher. The home materials give you the tools needed to extend the learning from the classroom into your own home. Using the home materials is the best way to get the full Kindermusik experience.
Can I try a class first before I enroll?
Absolutely. All Kindermusik educators offer a free class preview to allow you to experience Kindermusik before you decide whether or not to enroll. In Regina, we ask that you Contact Our Studios to set up a preview class.
