Kindermusik Camp
Kindermusik is a music and movement program with curriculum for children ages birth through seven-years old. Kindermusik classes provide a holistic musical and learning experience in the critical first years of young children and their families. This developmental program, guided by a proven methodology combining music and childhood development, provides opportunities to foster child-parent relationships and gain a lifelong love of music and learning. This program is great preparation for future Suzuki students, as well! It is taught by a trained and licensed Kindermusik educator.

The SIUE Suzuki Program presents “Kindermusik with Ellen Singh” which provides you with this program!

Let’s take a trip to the Wild Animal Park! We’ll slither like snakes and pounce like leopards, encounter tiny tree frogs and enormous elephants, and visit amazing habitats that are high and low, hot and cold, dry and rainy. Then, it’s time for the animals’ favorite activity, which they all do together. It’s the jungle hokey-pokey!
