Kindermusik Returning to Highland

Kindermusik is returning to the schedule of summer activities at the Walters Wellness Center at Highland Community College.  This series of Kindermusik sessions focuses on alternative methods of communication, particularly signing.  Each session costs $80, which includes 5 one-hour classes, and instruction materials.

This is a great way to use the summer season with musical activities adapted for each age group, including the Tell Me a Tale, Sign and Sing, and Peekaboo I Love You.  A good beginning never ends.

Limited space in these playdates is available, so interested parents are encouraged to contact instructor Sheila Hennigan at 785-741-4579 or shemeg1992@yahoo.com as soon as possible.

Kindermusik classes give both parent(s) and child(ren) the opportunity to interact and meet other families during a unique musical experience. During these sessions, parents have the opportunity to learn more about their child’s unique developmental process, and share a learning experience which creates a unique bond as their child learns with fun, musical play. Activities during the classes vary, including experimenting with various musical instruments, relaxation techniques, dancing to a steady beat, and much more. A Kindermusik session includes five 60 minute classes, with the exposure to music, stories, crafts, and snacks. These sessions are designed to nurture a child’s natural curiosity, one that eventually draws them towards learning new words, new numbers, and new big ideas.
