TFAC to offer Kindermusik program in 2012
Published 7:42 am Tuesday, December 20, 2011
Tryon Fine Arts Center is taking registrations for Kindermusik, an international music and movement program for families with children ages newborn to age seven, starting Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012. Students will attend 30-minute weekly classes held at the Tryon Fine Arts Center and taught by Bryant Belin, owner and director of VP Music Studios in Hendersonville, N.C.
According to Belin, in a Kindermusik class, parents and their children play and learn through joyful activities, using age-appropriate music and movement.
“Parents learn more about their child’s unique developmental process, and the shared learning experience creates a unique bond as the child associates learning with fun, musical play,” Belin said. “The approach is research-based and research-proven, and it’s fun for kids and caregivers.”
The Kindermusik system is designed to improve coordination and balance, as well as critical and creative thinking skills. The one-on- one parent and child interaction nurtures self-esteem, program designers say, while the music-making and music listening activities develop self-discipline. The Kindermusik program continues the learning process at home, guided by specially designed books, CDs and games.
Tryon Fine Arts Center is currently taking registrations for classes for 2, 3, and 4-6 year olds. For more information on the Kindermusik Program, call TFAC at 828-859-8322 or visit www.kindermusik.com. To register for classes, call Marianne Carruth at 828-859-8322, ext. 213.
