Class Information

Fulfilling your baby’s endless potential is an exciting opportunity that starts with Kindermusik Foundations.

Level 1: 12 - 24 Mos.
Adult attends the 45 minute class

This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and all your child's new friends and you’ll love helping him/her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with the Kindermusik@Home digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and each month’s story.

Level 2: 18 mos. - 3 years
Adult attends the 45 minute class

Combine your preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. We also connect you with other parents who share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler. Parents join class for the final activities. There are monthly themes with digital home materials that continue your child’s musical learning throughout the week.

Level 3: 3.5 - 5 years
Adult attends last 15 minutes of class
Mondays at 1:30 pm; taught by Jane Hendrix

Engage your child in music and movement activities that also promote language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, creativity, physical coordination, and more.

Natalie Filmore

Natalie McGee Filmore grew up in the Dunwoody School for the Arts program and began studying voice at the age of 7 with Jane Hendrix. She was also enrolled in piano, acting classes, import groups, and was a music camp counselor on many an occasion here at DSA and at other locations around Atlanta.

Natalie's experiences performing in Atlanta throughout her childhood and young adulthood led to life-long friendships, personal development, and a love and appreciation for the simple beauty of a melody line. The study of music also enabled Natalie to become Georgia Tech's first vocal music scholar (Opera). Natalie is truly honored to be on staff at DSA to share her knowledge of and love for music with others. Natalie has a talent for connecting with and encouraging children and truly loves to teach!
