Kindermusik classes for newborns through 7-year-old children. The Kindermusik curriculum is the premiere pre-school music program, which was established in 1978, and has been updated over the years to keep a fresh and lively approach to music education. These classes teach the fundamentals of music in a loving and playful environment and creates a very strong foundation for further musical study after graduation from the Kindermusik program.

Our COVID Risk Policy
Parker County is no longer in the “Extreme Risk” Dark Red Zone or the “Critical Risk” Red Zone, and we are teaching students in person or using Zoom Videoconferencing as they wish.
For the safety of our students and staff all piano lessons at The Burch School of Music will be taught online using Zoom Videoconferencing if we re-enter the Dark Red or Red zone.
All of our music classes during the second half of our spring semester were taught online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Kindermusik students, especially the toddlers, pre-K and kindergarten ages, were especially tired of the screen and wanted a real-time music class.
So here are some videos of our end-of-the-year Kindermusik celebrations. We are fortunate to have a big backyard, so that we could practice social distancing and keep everyone safe.
