Sing. Move. Bond. Grow.
Our Music & Play Studio is a licensed Kindermusik® studio in St. George, Utah offering family music classes for children and their parent or caregiver. The research-based curricula and interactive music experiences establish a foundation of early learning that supports sustained growth, confidence, and creativity throughout the life of a child. As a result, Kindermusik helps children acquire new vocabulary, improve memory and ability to learn new information, practice working with other children in a group, and much more.
In every Kindermusik class, your child is welcomed into a playful and nurturing environment where they will sing, move, play instruments, and hear stories—all while developing social skills, problem-solving skills, pre-math skills, and a foundation for reading.
Above all, the research-based curriculum focuses on whole-child development and helps you understand how your child is developing musically, cognitively, and socially.
Our Foundations (from birth to age 1) classes offer a sensory-rich yet caring and gentle environment where infants and young toddlers can explore and react to new sounds, sensations, objects, and movements.
Our Level 1 (from age 1 to age 2) classes provide toddlers with a stimulating setting to explore their new movement and language skills with a sense of security, comfort, and confidence.
Our Level 2 (from age 2 to age 3) classes encourage older toddlers to initiate their own ideas, nurturing social-emotional growth and cognitive development in a playful, exploratory environment.
Our Level 3 (from age 3 to age 5) classes engage preschoolers’ natural love of music and activate their imaginations. A wide range of learning opportunities boosts language skills, confidence, independence, social-emotional skills, and self-control.
Our Kindermusik Musicians (from age 3 to age 7) classes introduce music notation, new and complex instruments, and different genres of music. Children participate in ensembles while improving their problem-solving and pre-literacy skills.
