Students in my classes learn quickly that, for me, the word “music” is a verb. I get them up in front of a class to teach as soon as I can.

Kindermusik: Music and Child Development

Behold ... the Power of Kindermusik!

The research about music and children’s development is truly stunning. More and more, the focus of the research community turns to music as a vehicle to deliver a learning experience to children. The bottom line: early, positive and age-appropriate experiences with music—like a Kindermusik program—can have a remarkable and research-proven impact on your child’s:

  • language and literacy skills (vocabulary, comprehension, listening, expression)
  • social and emotional development
  • mathematics and pattern-recognition skills
  • ability to plan, guide, and self-regulate behavior
  • overall music and vocal development
  • develop a lifelong love of music, a foundation for learning and so much more!
