Level 5

For kindergarten or elementary-age children

What should my child experience in an elementary music class?

A variety of music and instruments. Kindermusik’s Level 5 classes teach children how to read musical notation to play instruments such as the recorder and glockenspiel, provide an outlet to explore new genres, and give children what they need to succeed in future instrument-specific music lessons.
