Not Just a Class – an Adventure
Musicologie Junior is a group class for toddlers and their parents, guardians or caretakers. At each 40 minute class, we’ll sing songs, move our bodies, dance to different styles of music, read sing-along books, and play lots of musical instruments while your child reinforces her naturally-developing senses of rhythm, melody, rhyme, speech, and movement! We’ll incorporate methods from Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Orff. Ages 0-5.

My son LOVES Musicologie’s toddler class! Miss Kay and Miss Cindy have great energy and the lessons are diverse, well-paced, and lots of fun! We’re looking forward to the next session
Meet the Teacher
Musicologie Junior was created by Kay Barker. Kay studied piano, voice and psychology at Hope College. She co-owns Musicologie and has more than 10 years of teaching experience. Junior classes are led by Kay.
Musicologie Junior takes place in our Grandview studio, a large window-filled room filled with exciting instruments including a grand piano, an organ, an accordion, drums, percussion, toy pianos, violins, guitars, and more.
Musicologie is at 1400 W 3rd Ave, across the street from Snap Fitness
The Methods Behind the Experience
It’s important to us that your child’s musical education is built on tried-and-true methods of musical learning. By blending concepts and curriculum of all of these approaches, our Musicologie Junior classes build each child’s innate sense of rhythm and melody and encourages future musical experimentation and exploration.
Musicologie Junior was developed specifically for very young children using the concepts and music of the three major approaches to children’s music learning: Dalcroze Eurhythmics, the Kodaly method, and the Orff Approach.
