It’s been a good year for [my son]. Thanks to you and everyone there for all your work. The school has been a good thing for him, a positive influence on his life. KMS Parent, 2012

Music, Movement & Dance

KMS students have Music, Movement and Dance classes every week, taught by Ms. Georgi Schmitt, a nationally recognized children’s musician and music educator.

Ms. Georgi has Montessori training and is a certified Orff music instructor. She is also a yoga teacher and a world-dance aficionado, so she brings all of this to her work with our students.

Primary
KMS Primary students have music, movement, and dance for 30 minutes each week in small groups. The classes are designed to engage students’ minds and bodies through a combination of singing, dancing, doing yoga, and playing a variety of instruments.

Elementary
KMS Elementary students have a full hour of music, movement, and dance each week. In addition, the 3rd-5th grade students have another hour during which they learn to read music and play the recorder. During the rest of the week, practicing their music is a lesson option for the Elementary students as well.

My daughter just completed her first semester of college and did very well. Her Montessori roots certainly helped!! KMS Alumni Parent, 2011
