My 3 year old has taken Kindermusik classes with Miss Melinda since she was 8 months old. She loves the classes, and they have brought so much joy to our family. I have really seen her develop and gro...w skills as a direct result of Kindermusik, and she even plays Kindermusik at home. See More

Both my boys had a great experience taking these music lessons, they are much more than just music! My boys learned about music yes, but also social skills, coordination and sharing. Plus it's uninter...rupted parent/child time. See More

I have been taking my children to Kindermusik with Melinda Lise for over 2 years now. Both children started just before 3 months old. Watching their development during the class has been astonishing.... The exposure to different sounds, sights, other babies, the whole package has visibly helped my children with their development. I love to watch them interact and engage in the class. I watched both my children sit on their own at 4 months (just in that class!) because of all the stimulation they were getting visually and audibly, that triggered them to sit tall and strengthen their back muscles, and by 5 months they were both sitting on their own in class and at home. I have been to other music classes in other cities and states and what Melinda has created here in little TC is by far the best I have ever seen! I will be taking my children to Kindermusik with Melinda Lise for as long as they continue to enjoy it! See More

I wish I would've done this months ago! Ms Melinda is a kind, sweet woman who truly cares about kids and loves watching them learn. It's a fun, safe place to learn, grow and play. You'll be amazed at much your child learns each week! If you're on the fence, do it for you and your child! You won't be disappointed! See More

This class was fabulous, especially for boys! lots of opportunities to interact with safe instruments that make noise(!!) the big drums were a particular favorite. Hiding under scarfs and learning to ...catch them provided endless hours of joy. Best part is that there are take home instruments, books and CD's - Thank you Melinda. See More

We love Kindermusik with Melinda Lise! My 16-month-old has been in her classes for 8 months and I've seen him thrive developmentally, socially and musically. Miss Melinda, Miss Justine and Miss Sarah ...are patient, animated, and fun and genuinely love children. It's such a pleasure to have these classes in Traverse City - without them, my toddler's weeks would be a little less fun and a lot less musical! See More

My son likes the music, dancing, and various instruments. And he loves Mrs. Melinda, she is so upbeat. I like that there is some structure to begin to prepare him for a preschool type setting.

Yes!! Play is a Child’s work. Kindermusik incorporates playful and creative interactions and activities to support brain development. Our first week of Level 3 preschool classes were perfect examples of children at play, being musical, creative, interactive, imaginative and more. #moreplaymorekindermusik #kindermusikhelpswiththat

This is why our Kindermusik Level 3 and 4, processed based curriculum is focused on imagination, creativity, play, human connections/interactions, and social/em...otional development. The window is small for this type of learning and there will be plenty of time for the rest when the brain is ready.

Did you know that the right brain develops first? It does so by the time children are 3-4 years of age. The left brain, on the other hand, doesn't fully come online until children are approximately seven years old; hence the first seven years being recognized as such a critical period in child devel...
