Bucktown Music
Why Kindermusik?

The Bucktown Music difference: 


Kindermusik is a music & movement program that uses a child-centered approach to enrich your child’s social, cognitive, language, emotional, physical, and musical development. We incorporate the teachings of early childhood experts such as Montessori & Piaget, the music expertise of Orff and Kodaly.  We start with sensory stimulation, exploration, vocal development, and patterns & sequencing skills to develop a strong learning foundation.  We teach parents how to teach their children, and how to support their child's unique learning skills. 

At Bucktown Music, our program is designed so that you will NEVER REPEAT a Kindermusik unit. Our curricula nurtures your budding musician while keeping things fresh from newborns to big kids (and their grownups)!  When your child completes the Kindermusik program, we offer private music lessons to continue the journey!

Kindermusik Makes Great Parenting EASY

Parents will learn songs, poems, games, and techniques for every aspect of your day, from baby’s diaper changes to toddler temper tantrums to preschool separation anxiety.  Easing these transitions throughout your day with a fun song helps foster communication and the parent-child connection while strengthening your child’s self esteem and independence.  Music is the perfect vehicle for learning!

Kindermusik Prepares your child for music lessons

Through games, instrument exploration, and vocal play, your child learns about tonal patterns, rhythm patterns, and music concepts & contrasts (forte/piano, lento/rapido, glissando, etc.), as well as develops their ear and singing voice.  Later, in our classes for 3-5 year olds, your child learns to read beginning music notation and is exposed to diverse genres such as Native American music, African music, opera, big band, and more.  We incorporate pre-piano skills on the keyboard, as well as having the children try the violin and guitar. This all-encompassing approach ensures that your child will be successful in lessons.  At Bucktown Music, you are taking an award-winning music class at a music school with degreed and licensed music educators.  It just makes sense...


Every Kindermusik theme includes an album of the class music, along with home activities and materials, geared specifically to your child's developmental level. Your child's educator will give you tips for using these materials and ideas for other activities you can do at home.  See some home activities HERE
