Kindermusik at Suzuki Music School of Lincoln Park is an exciting curriculum that enhances your child’s natural curiosity, creativity, and imagination.

Zoo Train

(18 months – 3½ years) 45 minutes with parent/caregiver

Your toddler and the train make a natural match—always on the move. Bring your own stuffed animals for the petting zoo.  Pretend to be a polar bear.  Sing songs for clapping time and use music to help children regulate emotions.  

Home materials include a hardcover book, animal shaped shaker, CD with lyrics and home activities poster. (Sibling kit includes a hardcover book and animal shaped shaker.)

On the Road

(3½ – 5 years) 60 minutes, adults join the last 10 – 15 minutes

Relive your childhood, with your child. Every song is likely to revive a memory from your summers’ past. Play Eye Spy and find shapes in the clouds to pass the time. Take imaginary trips to vacation destinations in a bus named "Van Go”. Parents will learn more about how music improves a preschooler's ability to think, reason, create and express. Each class will include an art activity. 

Home materials include hardcover book, frog guiro instrument, home CD, and home activities poster. (Sibling kit includes hardcover book and frog instrument.)
