You get the same Kindermusik excitement and learning in the classroom… and the same high-quality take-home materials – including music and an instrument . . . but it’s just a one-day class so you can try it out! Enrolled families* are also invited for the fun!

$20*/child (includes a 30 minute Kindermusik class, 15 minutes of arts and crafts, one instrument, one 10 song downloadable music card). Please purchase one ticket per child, parents and caregivers are FREE. * Currently enrolled families receive $5 off.
