Each Kindermusik class is a world of discovery and adventure. In every class, you'll witness your child's developmental evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem, and musicality. And it happens within a nurturing class environment-full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight.
Learning through playful music classes
One of the most important aspects of Kindermusik is that all activities for babies, toddlers and preschoolers are enjoyable programs with music, movement, singing and games. This way the child becomes familiar with the rhythm of music and the structure of language. Fun games and relaxation exercises teach the child about their body parts and movement abilities. We also enjoy games and activities which improve the cognitive as well as emotional development of the child.
Age related music activities
Babies, toddlers and preschoolers have different needs, physical capabilities and learning abilities. Therefore Kindermusik designed music programs related to their developmental stages to enhance the educational achievements and the child’s enjoyment.
The core belief of the Kindermusik approach is that musical learning is more than music alone. Our proven methodology is built on the music education philosophies of Orff, Kodaly, Laban and Dalcroze and the work of early childhood experts like Piaget, Montessori, Greenspan and Brazelton.
Current research showing that music is a powerful stimulant for a child’s total development is continually being incorporated into the program. A wide array of well-known experts in the field of early childhood development inform and advise the development of Kindermusik curricula, including such specialists as Dr. Carla Hannaford (author of Smart Moves), Anne Green Gilbert (movement specialist and author of Creative Dance for All Ages), Dr. Melissa Johnson (paediatric psychologist at the University of North Carolina) and many others.
This research has been distilled into “Kindermusik Foundations of Learning”, translating complex concepts into easy-to-understand everyday language. Every lesson includes these practical principles that parents can apply to learning activities at home. This builds the parent-teacher partnership that is so important to a nurturing, learning environment for the child.
Kindermusik's unique curricula cover the development of children from newborn to 7 years old. The different programs and classes represent the highest quality in educational, musical and creative content, all based on the latest early childhood development research. Each program introduces your child to the adventure of music then moves at their pace, pausing to engage their interests, nurture their gifts and celebrate their discoveries.
Kindermusik involves you, the parent, in each step of your child's musical learning and gives you and them the time and tools to bring the power of music into your home and into their life.
