Read More About Larchmont Music Academy
Our goal is to provide the highest standard of quality and excellence in music education. Music should be an integral part of every life and accessible to all ages and levels of proficiency. As each student masters the skills and discipline of their chosen instruments, he or she will also gain confidence, poise, and a sense of accomplishment that will pervade all aspects of their lives.
Each Kindermusik class is a world of discovery and adventure. In every class, you'll witness your child's developmental evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem, and musicality. And it happens within a nurturing environment full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight.
Kindermusik provides the time and tools to help bring the power of music into your home and your child's life forever. An integral part of every Kindermusik program, your Kindermusik At-Home Materials include the highest-quality music CDs, creative activities, beautifully illustrated children's books, and specially designed instruments created to complement the music and Kindermusik classroom experience.
By adding new concepts and challenges along the way, each age-appropriate program acts as a stepping stone to the next—paving the way to a musical journey that can last seven magnificent, musical years.

Kindermusik Village invites you and your baby to be a part of a very special music class created to stimulate Baby’s total development and nurture the remarkable bond the two of you share. Connect with your baby and with other parents as you experience together what the latest brain research confirms: purposeful musical activities stimulate the cognitive, emotional, language, social, and physical development that all begin in the very first days of your baby’s life. Each week we will dance, explore instruments, share songs and chants, and celebrate together all of the magical milestones that are a part of Baby’s first 18 months. Lap babies, crawlers, and walkers are all welcome!
Kindermusik is much more than a weekly class. Your At Home materials you receive from your educator are just the tools you need to continue that one-of-a-kind experience together as a family. While we plant the seeds of learning through music in the classroom, you will use the At Home materials at home to cultivate lifelong learning.
Family involvement in your child's learning is a fundamental cornerstone of the Kindermusik philosophy because we believe the parent is the child’s most important teacher and the home is the most important place for a child’s learning to take root and grow. After all, there’s no better way to nurture your child’s development—and you’ll love doing it together—every day!
We give our students access to the wide world of music — from private music lessons to ensemble playing, Mozart to Metallica, there is a program here for any child or adult who is interested in music.
