Kindermusik

For a child’s brain, body, heart & soul

There are many things to do with kids – why not make it fun & educational?!

 

Children thrive on music. It’s one of the best vehicles for learning in early childhood development. Kindermusik takes musical learning to the next level; our curriculum is proven to improve a child’s brain development. And for parents, it’s a fun thing to do with kids!

 

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. The following research is the bedrock of Kindermusik’s curriculum.

 

When young children are consistently engaged by music in an age-appropriate, socially accepting environment, they benefit at many levels. And of course, they develop a lifelong love of music. The 14 week course includes a Kindermusik home kit with CD and a small shaker instrument.
