Kindermusik By Miss Angela

Hello Kindermusik Families and Friends!

You have entered a brand new world full of music and rhythm.

Listen and move. Play and grow. This is Kindermusik, the most trusted music and movement program for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and young children. Kindermusik® is about kids, parents, and teachers—coming together and having a great time! It’s about helping you grow closer to your child. Enriching her environment and her development. Giving him a lifelong love of music and a foundation for learning.

Kindermusik History

Kindermusik’s world-wide reputation is rooted in a history that spans nearly half a century.

In the late 1960s, educational experts in Germany developed a music and movement curriculum for kindergarten children. They drew on the work of esteemed musicians and educators from Europe and Asia, including Shinichi Suzuki, Maria Montessori, and Carl Orff.

By the mid 1970s, the program was ready for prime time. Two of the original creators introduced it to the U.S., and in 1978 the company Kindermusik was founded. A few years later it expanded into Canada, and from there it spread around the world. Kindermusik has been enjoyed by over 1 million families in more than 60 countries.

Since the beginning, we’ve continued to make improvements to Kindermusik’s programs and products. We bring together experts in music, education, and child development to examine emerging research and develop new curricula and training programs, award-winning books and music, engaging instruments and activities, and much more. That’s especially important now, when science is opening new avenues to understanding the benefits of music.

Benefits of Music

All over the world, parents bond with their babies through musical sounds and rhythmic movement. They rock and swing their children, put them to sleep with lullabies, make them laugh with nursery rhymes. Parents know instinctively what scientists have now proven: young children thrive on music.

MUSIC MATTERS

Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in early childhood development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain cells make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence. Kindermusik’s curriculum is built on this research.

When young children are consistently engaged by music in an age-appropriate, socially accepting environment, they benefit at many levels:

  • They gain the phonological processing, spoken language, and comprehension skills that are the foundation of reading.
  • They build the spatial-temporal and reasoning skills required for math, science, and engineering.
  • They develop social and emotional skills that are essential for school readiness—like the ability to regulate their responses and relate to others in complex ways.

By moving and dancing to music and playing simple instruments, children improve their gross and fine motor skills. Activities that encourage freedom within a fun and friendly structure spark their creativity.

And of course, they develop a lifelong love of music.
