Benefits of Kindermusik Education

Musical Learning is More Than Music Alone

Kindermusik® International has more than 25 years of experience creating curricula based on new and proven research in child development.

Our effective teaching methodology is based on the music education philosophies of Orff, Kodály, Laban and Dalcroze and the work of early childhood experts like Piaget, Montessori, Greenspan and Brezelton. Current research that shows music is a powerful stimulant for a child's total development is continually incorporated in the writing of all curricula.

Language development in a multi-lingual world

Music education is one of the best ways to support a child's language development. Our programs incorporate language activities beginning with sound identification and imitation, baby's first words, to storytelling. Whether English is your child's first language, second or third, our seven-year program supports their growing knowledge and confidence in using the language.

Physical development

Children learn through movement so we move! Free dance, circle dances and finger play help your child gain awareness of her body and improve her coordination.

Cognitive development

Current research has proven that music-making and music listening skills as well as balancing, tapping a steady beat and the ability to count help children later on in critical and creative thinking needed for math, reading, problem solving and concentration.

Social development

In class children enjoy time with others their own age and have the opportunity to practice some necessary skills such as self-discipline, taking turns and sharing.

Emotional development

One-on-one parent and child interaction nurtures self-esteem. Music bonds families, creates communities and soothes the soul.

Musical development

Rhythm, instruments, singing, dance and a wide variety of musical styles are introduced to your child throughout the seven-year program.
