We are thrilled to launch Kindermusik with Grandfriends – an inter-generational music-making experience!

Age is no barrier to music. Babies and senior citizens both experience joy from music making, so why not make music together?

Thank you to fellow Kindermusik Educator Lucy Calvo for allowing us to use this photo from her Kindermusik with Grandfriends class!

Kindermusik with Grandfriends brings the joy of a Kindermusik class into a senior center.

Seniors join in the fun by shaking instruments along with their younger music-making peers, sharing high-fives during circle dances, and partaking in our hello- and good-bye song rituals.

Children reap the same benefits they do in any other Kindermusik class, and the seniors experience extra laughs and shed a few years. In fact, research has shown that involvement in children’s musical activities like Kindermusik can be beneficial to seniors with dementia.

What is a Kindermusik Playdate?

Playdates are stand-alone classes are centered around a fun theme or holiday, and serve as a great way for families not enrolled in weekly classes to enjoy music time together. Structured like any other Kindermusik classes, Playdate classes are about 45 minutes in length and include lots of singing and instrument play, creative and expressive movement, organized and free dancing, pretend play, and special treats like our big parachute or beach balls to play with. Plus, each child class music and a special instrument to take home!
