"You'll find that your musical journey at Gymboree will be among the most stimulating, exciting and beneficial experiences of your child's early years."
Enhance your child's development and love of music through song, dance, movement games and instruments. With an array of musical styles, our classes help children explore the power of rhythm, melody, tonality and beat while nurturing key physical, social and intellectual skills.
Music 16 - 16 months
Your child spends much of the first year of life listening to the sounds of speech and learning the rules of language before actually speaking his or her first words. Through early exposure to songs, music and movement activities, children learn about pitch, beat, tempo, and rhythm long before they can sing their first note! Your child's musical journey begins in Gymboree Music I, where we introduce age-safe instruments, ball and scarf play activities, vocal play, lap bounces, and a repertoire of joyful songs, dances and lullabies that build memory, support language development and establish a foundation of musical skills to grow on.
Music 216 - 28 months
Our playful approach makes musical learning especially fun for this active age group. Simple structured movement activities, group and individual instrument exploration, and songs and musical games support and encourage emerging musical expression. Children begin tunefully singing fragments of songs, expressing beat and rhythm patterns and start to apply what they're learning about the musical building blocks. Music and songs ranging from Africa to Asia, Classical to Caribbean and beyond provide endless excitement and learning opportunities.
Music 328 months - 5 years
In Gymboree Music III, your child's ability to express musical rules, structures and elements dramatically increases. Cognitive and physical growth leads to more complex and accurate responses in singing, critical listening, moving and instrument play. Our playfully structured activities encourage interaction with peers and support group cooperation through music making. Creative movement, handbells, instrument and drum ensembles, chime bars and improvisation activities provide extra excitement and challenge for your budding young musician.
