Kindermusik Level 5-Kindermusik for the YoungChild

5 years to 7 years and 11 months

Our most advanced classes offer children the opportunity to use music notation to play a variety of instruments. As children grow musically throughout Level 5, they develop strong social-emotional, problem-solving, and pre-literacy skills that help boost school readiness and encourage a natural love of learning.

  • Listening to music and sound with an analytical ear and paying close attention to pitch variation and timbre between specific instruments
