A variety of materials are used in my classes. Materials in the class/studio/activity like craft supplies, tools, manipulatives, props, equipment, instruments, and live & recorded music. Materials for you and your child to use/access at home include literature books (physical or download), music download/CD, and instruments. Also occasionally there are crafts/props, playsets/games, tote bag/backpack, lesson books/sheets (depending on the curricula, theme, & age),
Materials usage depends on the theme and curricula changes throughout the year. Exactly what materials go home also depends on the theme & curricula but you will receive a minimum of one music CD or download, one literature book physical or download, one instrument every 10 weeks.
If/when a child transitions to a small group or personalized lesson (usually 4 or older) they will start to receive home assignments and eventually there own instrument (sticks/mallets, drum, resbars, glockenspiel, dulcimer, recorder); a reusable tote bag or backpack is also available so they can keep track of activities done at home to be brought back to class.
**There are also extras that are available for an extra fee... books, instruments, totes, activity or game sets.
The Kindermusik materials that are included for use at home are high quality. Their safety standards are above those federally mandated. Their books & music & at home materials are available on line or in the physical. Kindermusik understands our world (especially tech) is in constant change so they work to provide options for the modern family. Kindermusik also recognizes the need and developmental need for the physical for children's learning so they offer well designed and made physical books, instruments, even some playsets. Books for babies are board books. Instruments are focused for both safety and development needs. And Kindermusik regularly updates their curricula, music, books, and instruments to not only for quality but also based on current science & society need.
