Schools love Kindermusik because…

Kindermusik_PreschoolClassroom_MusicAndSensoryLearning“We are LOVING it.The kids are doing great. We have done it three days a week and they are not tired of it at all. I may just be imagining things, but some of my quiet kids are talking more. They are engaged and busy and doing exactly what I am asking them to do. We started lessons 3 and 4 today and I was shocked at what they remembered from last week! They were saying the poem and remembered all of the hand gestures. It has been so exciting to watch.” Jan B. – Preschool Intervention Program Teacher, SC

“Students who are physically impaired are jamming to the music and using vocabulary that they haven’t used before. Some children who have Autism Spectrum Disorders and have been totally nonverbal are not only using phrases, but complete sentences as well.” ~ Sheryl Koscso, Director of ECE Curriculum Instruction, FL


“I’m excited to report the language learning gains [from using Kindermusik curricula] were above the 70% significance level.” ~Penny Collins, Director of Special Education, Osceola County, Florida

“I have a wide range of needs in my classroom from significant visual impairment to developmental delay. The ABC Music & Me program accommodates all my students and has engaging activities that are easy to adapt for students with special needs. I would recommend the ABC Music & Me program to any Pre-K teacher.” ~Rebekah K., Pre-K Teacher, NC

Special needs ABC classroom“Good morning!  I just wanted to tell you about something wonderful that happened in my last ABC Music & Me lesson.  I have a student who has lower cognitive functioning and limited speech. He does not follow directions or imitate movements during music, etc. He LOVES listening to music and instruments but will either stick the instrument in his mouth or throw it to the floor. He refuses to play it, even with hand-over-hand assistance. We have been working with him since August and have seen little progress in his participation skills. Last week when we were doing our ABC lesson, he played two different instruments appropriately AND independently during the whole song segment! And he was imitating some of the movements that were going on during other segments as well!  My aide and I almost cried!  What a breakthrough for him!” ~ Kimberly L., Early Childhood Teacher

Employee-Owners Love Kindermusik Because…

I love Kindermusik because…

“My kids, now college students, took Kindermusik classes before I started to work at KI.  I love Kindermusik because it instilled in my children a love for music that continues today.  And, as an Employee Owner at KI for 20 years, I know I have had a small part in sharing that same love for music with hundreds of thousands of children and families around the world as well.” ~ Scott Kinsey, Vice President/Chief Financial Officer/Owner
Baby and mom Kindermusik class“…it brings families together and is FUN!” ~ Debby Pool, Vice President, Product Development/Owner
“I love hearing the multi-generational stories from families whose children—and now their children!—have benefited from Kindermusik. It’s very gratifying to work for a company that has made, and is continuing to make, such a positive impact on so many lives.” ~ Kelly Green, Vice President /General Manager Schools Division/Owner
“… around here, people know that children are children, people are people, and we all (including parents!) absorb, react, and engage according to our own personalities. Dancing is learning, sitting is learning, clapping is learning. Active children are learning! Shy children are learning! Giggling, bouncing, even distracted children are learning! Everyone is welcome, and every musical experience is offered with open arms and warm intentions. There is no negative here. Kids plus music, just good, good, good.” ~ Molly Dumbleton, Editorial Director/Owner
“…every day I get to help bring laughter and music into children’s lives, and that’s not bad for a day’s work.” ~ Adina Zoltan, Managing Editor/Owner
Kindermusik scarves“… of what we do for children all over the world. Music is something REALLY special — and it’s hard to imagine that music isn’t part of the lives of some children. I truly hope that one day we will, indeed, bring the gift of music (Kindermusik) into the life of every child — amazing things would happen — of that I am certain. I also <3 Kindermusik because of my fellow employee-owners and our educators. Working with and getting to know such talented and strong individuals is awe-inspiring — and — so many friendships have been made over the years — friendships that remain constant for the rest of my life — of that I am certain, as well.” ~ Connie Schor, Manager, Educator Communication/Owner Continue reading “Employee-Owners Love Kindermusik Because…”
